Pure Handmade Beeswax Candles
Why beeswax? Unlike soy or paraffin wax, beeswax cleans the air while it is burning, and glows brightly with a light spectrum closest to the light of the sun! Beeswax is also special because of the way it's made: it is simply rendered wax cappings and burr comb leftover from the beehive. Our candle wicks are 100% pure, unbleached cotton and we never add dyes or fragrances, so you can burn our candles with total peace of mind.
If you're looking for a few minutes of burn time, choose our taper candles. If you're looking for 30+ minutes of burn time every now and then, check out our plain or beehive-shaped votive candles. If you want to burn a beeswax candle for 60+ minutes a few times a week, check out our 3" pillar candles!
Burning tips: Trim your wick to 1/4" before lighting again. Keep away from drafts, vents, open windows, small children, pets, and flammable objects that could catch fire. Never leave your candle unattended. Burn candle until the edge is melting to prevent tunnelling. Stop burning your taper or votive candle when there's about 1/2" of beeswax left to prevent overheating your vessel, or 2 inches with a pillar candle. (But don't throw away your leftover beeswax!)
