When it’s Friday and the sun is shining, there’s nothing better than heading out for a weekend of camping. Getting away from the city and enjoying campfires and star gazing is one of the most relaxing ways to spend a few days off in the summer. If the candle lover in you is looking to enhance your camping relaxation, add beeswax candles to your packing list. The Honey Candles crew loves to bring our 100% pure beeswax candles with us when we camp both for providing a relaxing soft glow and honey aroma, and for lighting up dark evenings. We’ve compiled a list of our favourite candles to bring on our camping adventures.
Votives and tealights
Votives and tealights are easily two of the most versatile beeswax candles that can be used for any occasion… and camping is no exception! Both votives and tealights fully liquify and must be burned in a glass cup. These cups also offer the candles some protection from windy conditions. Couple this with the fact that they are compact and easy to pack, and you have two perfect candles for camping!
If simplicity is a priority for your camping style then Beeswax Tins may be a better match for you. Beeswax tin candles don’t require a dedicated holder, and if you’re packing light or if bringing anything glass is a concern, then tins are the perfect solution! Not only are the small containers easy to pack, they also come in a line of essential oil infused options. Let the all-natural aromas compliment the beautiful smells of nature and unwind in the great outdoors.
The Honey Candles essential oils line includes Citronella candles. Scented with natural essential oil distilled from citronella leaves, these candles provide a soft subtle scent that doesn’t cause the irritation that artificial scents often do. For many years, citronella has been believed to have a number of incredible qualities including repelling insects. For an all natural option pack some Honey Candles Citronella Votives or Tins.
When you are spending time in the wilderness you want to hope for the best but prepare for the worst. It is important to ensure you have packed adequate survival supplies including rations, a first aid kit, and an eco-friendly emergency candle. Beeswax burns longer and hotter than average candles, meaning your emergency candle will give you more warmth and light during a miserable night in the woods. Be sure to add a beeswax emergency candle to your packing list!
