Single, round Bee Votive (candle holder not included)
Pure Beeswax Candles burn with almost no smoke or scent and clean the air by releasing negative ions. These can bind with toxins and help remove them from the air. They are a great choice if you have allergies or sensitivities as they do not contain any soot producing chemicals or toxins.
The wax for our candles we refer to as BeEco-wax. We made that name up BTW. You may notice it’s quite dark compared to most “beeswax” candles you might normally see. This is because we do not harvest wax until the bees have used it a number of years.
Why? Bees have to work very hard to make wax, and once they have created the cells/comb inside the hive those same cells are used again and again for multiple purposes.
To promote hive health and production, we let them use the heck out of that wax. The older the wax, the darker it becomes. This benefits the bees by allowing them to focus on other tasks in the hive, although they continue to build new comb. The benefit to us is that the very-used wax has been infused with a fantastic honey scent! This wax burns just as well as newer, yellower wax.
Our candles are individually hand-poured in limited quantities. The glow and scent from these bee-themed candles adds ambiance to any occasion. They make great gifts for weddings, birthdays, or just because the people you care about deserve something sweet.
