Pure Beeswax Candles
Honey Candles® are handcrafted from 100% pure beeswax which is sourced directly from beekeepers in Canada. The wax used to cap the honey cells is scraped off during the honey harvesting process and then filtered and formed into large blocks. Beeswax is a naturally occurring by-product of food pollination and honey collection and is the most environmentally friendly candle wax available.
When compared to other waxes, beeswax naturally burns cleaner, brighter, hotter, and longer than most choices and does not require chemical processing or additives to enhance these properties. With an inherently pleasant but gentle aroma, beeswax is the perfect choice for the eco-friendly home.
Tealights must be burned in cups, either those provided or other cups made specifically for the shape. They are designed to fully liquefy as they burn. You don’t need to trim the wick and they are best burned in one lighting. If less than half the wax is left when you extinguish your candle it may be difficult to relight and/or cause an incomplete burn.
Votives are designed to fully liquefy so must be burned in a snug fitting cup. Do not trim the wick of a Votive before lighting. Only trim the wick of a votive if the flame is flickering excessively or producing smoke in a draft free environment.
Candlesticks ,tapers, columns, and tubes must fit snuggly in a secure holder. Generally, the wicks do not need to be trimmed, but if they appear too long or start to develop a carbon cap you should trim to ½”. Candles should be extinguished before trimming and then relit. Wicks trimmed too short or broken off may cause dripping to occur as the candle melts more wax than it can burn. Be sure to extinguish the flame of your candle before it reaches your holder as the heat may crack some glass holders.
