Makes 10 candles


  • 10 Vital Farms Eggs
  • 8 ounces beeswax pellets
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil
  • 10 candle wicks
  • Clothes pins


  • Gently tap the top-third of the eggs with a paring knife, remove the top portion of shell, transfer the egg to a container and the shell to an empty Vital Farms Egg carton. Repeat with all your eggs.
  • Gently press wicks into the bottom of your egg shells and set aside.
  • In a heat-proof bowl or pitcher, combine the beeswax and coconut oil and melt over a double-boiler on medium heat.
  • Gently pour the wax into the egg molds, leaving about 1/4-inch of space at the top.
  • Thread the wicks through the clothes pins to keep them centered while the candles harden.
  • Once the wax has hardened, trim the wicks to about 1/4-inch. Your candles are ready to light and enjoy!
