Enjoy Burning Honey Candles ® Pure Beeswax Votives

Honey Candles® makes beautiful 100% pure beeswax Votives. We want to be sure that you get the most pleasure and satisfaction possible from burning our natural beeswax Votives so I would like to share our best burning tips for votives with you as well as discuss our Honey Candles® Votives selection. Here are the dos and don’ts of burning beeswax Votives.

beeswax votive candlesPlease don’t treat your beeswax Votive like a mini pillar. I’ve been in homes where I’ve seen natural beeswax Votives sitting in pillar holders ready to burn.  Beeswax Votives are meant to be burned in votive cups that fit snuggly. This enables the Votive to totally liquefy which is the right way for beeswax Votives to burn effectively and completely. Usually the wick doesn’t need to be trimmed on a Votive unless the flame is flickering and producing smoke. I always remove the paper label on the bottom of the Votive and put a teaspoon of water or coarse salt in the bottom of the Votive cup before placing the votive in it. This makes for easier removal of the wick tab and wax after the candle has burned down. You may also place the cup in the freezer for easy wax removal. Votives have a large wick tab to hold the wick up and centered. The tab also helps disperse the heat for a safer burn.

I like burning Honey Candles® Votives. It encloses the flame and the light shines through the glass taking on some of the characteristics of the holder. By that I mean the light is clear if the glass is clear or muted somewhat if it is frosted.  You can change the effect of burning Votives by putting them in colored glass votive holders.

Honey Candles® has so many Votive choices for you. Be prepared to make hard decisions when you go to our on-line store.
