Beeswax candles, made from 100% Australian beeswax, our candles are all non toxic burners and contain no paraffin, no soy wax, no palm wax and no additives.
Our beeswax is the product of the honey production. Once bees have filled the honeycombs, they will add a capping of wax to protect the honey. During the extraction process, that capping is being removed.
How we prepare our Bee Wax Candles
We extensively clean the wax and pour it into these beautiful slightly honey scented candles.
Beeswax candles are naturally longer-burning and can last 2-5 times longer than paraffin candles and are virtually smokeless.
Since beeswax is a natural ioniser, our candles will help to purify your room of dust, pollen, odours, toxins, mould and mildew whilst leaving a light, natural honey scent.
As beeswax candles draw in dust as they are burning, you may occasionally need to pour out some of the molten wax in order to un-clog the wick. This will ensure your candle burns as it is meant to.
We recommend to burn your candles for an extended period of time rather than short burns. This will allow to burn the candle more evenly and efficiently.
All of our candles have either 100% cotton or paper wicks and are hand poured here in our workshop. As beeswax is a natural product, color and shape will slightly vary with each individual batch.
