100% Pure Beeswax Handmade Candle
This candle measures approx. 110mm tall x 60mm diameter.
It has a burn time of approx. 14-16 hours.
Beeswax is produced naturally by the bees and unlike other waxes such as paraffin wax (a petrochemical) and soy and palm waxes (plant oils) it is ton-toxic when burnt. In fact, in its natural, unscented state, it is actually beneficial to human health, cleansing inside air of dust, pollens, moulds and other nasties.
Candle-making is a hobby of mine. This beeswax candle has been hand-rolled using 100% pure beeswax foundation sheets which are primarily used within a beehive frame for the bees to build comb. Beeswax is collected when we extract honey in the form of cappings, we then melt it down and have it pressed into foundation sheets.
100% Pure Beeswax Candles don’t smoke when burning correctly and give off a delicious honey scent.
Hint: When extinguishing your beeswax candle, using a match stick simply knock the burning wick over into the melted wax surrounding it and stand it back up. This gives the wick a coat of wax beneficial for ease of lighting next time. It also prevents the smouldering wick from smoking.
