All of our candles are pure beeswax and come in different colours. The shades depend on the colour of the wax. It is recommended to keep the candles out of direct sunlight in order to avoid colour change. Thinner and longer candles can change shape as well if left in a warm location.
Unlike candles made from other wax, beeswax candles burn brighter and cleaner as they emit negative ions that are known to help purify the air. Beeswax also smells great when burned without any added chemicals or scents, as it’s naturally aromatic from the honey and flower nectar that’s found in the honeycomb.
Beeswax candles are rare and expensive. Beeswax costs about 10 times more than paraffin. Honeybees ingest honey to make beeswax. It takes approximately 7 kg of honey to produce 1 kg of wax. Once honey is ingested, the bees hang inside the colony for 24 hours while their bodies convert the honey into wax. The wax is secreted out of eight glands on the underside of the bee’s abdomen. When the wax leaves the bee’s body and comes in contact with the air, it causes the wax to solidify into dinner-plate shaped flakes. The bees then grab these wax plates with their legs, bring them up to their mandibles, and chew them to soften the wax. Then they carefully mould the wax into the perfect honeycomb structure.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended
- Burn on a flat surface. Consider placing on a candle plate in case of drips
- If the candle starts to get “dusty” looking, that is simply the honey in the beeswax coming to the surface. Simply polish with a damp cloth to keep your candle looking bright and new.
