pure beeswax emergency candle tin with matches and cooking straps

Save His Life

What do you get the man who has everything this Father’s Day? Give him a 'green' gift that could save his life! If your man likes to camp, hike, ski, ATV, snowmobile, kayak or boat or even if he just drives in bad snowy weather in the winter the unscented natural beeswax Honey Candles® Emergency Candle might be just the gift for him.

Like most emergency items this is a gift that just sits quietly. We hope that it is never needed and fortunately since beeswax does not go rancid it never goes ‘off’. If you are in a situation where you could benefit from an emergency candle there are none better than the hand poured natural beeswax Honey Candles® Emergency Candle.  This is because it is made with beeswax.  Beeswax burns hotter than paraffin emergency candles. It creates more heat to keep you warm. Enough heat in fact to heat water or soup. That is why we have included a couple of metal straps to support a tin over the flame. You can even melt clean snow for fresh drinking water. There is at least three times more heat from the pure beeswax Honey Candles® Emergency Candle than a paraffin emergency candle and it is naturally long burning so you get more heat from a lesser volume of wax. Beeswax also does not produce any toxins while burning but because like all combustion it uses oxygen you always need to leave your window open a crack if you are in a car. If you are huddled under the shelter of a rock somewhere waiting out a storm while hiking this of course isn’t a concern.

Our newer Honey Candles® Emergency Candle is a little smaller than our old Incan. We wanted a sportier look and a smaller candle to lower both price point and weight.  It is now easier to pack, costs a little less and it burns 24 hours.  Since I came to Honey Candles® I have always thought the emergency candle was special.  I even said to a friend not too long ago, “Someday Honey Candles® Emergency Candle is going to save someone’s life and everyone is going to want one.”  Do you really think it a good idea to wait to get one? Every few months we hear of someone getting lost skiing or hiking.  They don’t all survive.  Could a life have been saved had they had a Honey Candles® Emergency Candle?

And don’t forget to have emergency beeswax candles in your home emergency kit. A Honey Candles® Emergency Candle is just as important there. It is great during a power outage. Also include some long burning Honey Candles® pure beeswax Pillars or Tapers to lighten your way during a dark time.
