Most candles are made with paraffin, a petroleum by-product, which is not natural and some consider unhealthy to burn. To prepare it for candle making, it is chemically bleached and hardened, then artificially scented. Burning paraffin emits harmful, black soot and pollutes the air.
Currently, there are no regulations in the U.S. on disclosing ingredients on candle labels. You may find candles labelled "beeswax" that are made with paraffin, or other candle waxes, and contain as little as 1% beeswax. We are very proud to say that we use 100% beeswax in all of our candles.
Beeswax candles have been highly prized since ancient times. Honey bees make their wax from the nectar they collect from flowers. Pure beeswax candles have a delightful sweet fragrance, burn longer, more cleanly and give off more light than other wax candles.
We have a wide variety of 100% pure beeswax candles: floating candles, tealights, votives, pillars of varying heights and shapes, colonial and tapers. Also decorative ones such as a skep, bear skep, bee, 3 tier cake, carved egg, pine cone, frog, chicken, angel .....
Pure beeswax may develop a film called bloom over time, which can easily be removed by buffing with a soft cloth.
