I was desperate to get a set of candles for my Advent wreath but wanted beeswax for their environmental sustainability and clean burning. They are remarkably hard to find, and definitely not available in stores. Hunting online for a local Canadian supplier I found your site with its beautiful, simple candles, got a perfect set that were shipped promptly and arrived incredibly fast. (That was a pleasant surprise given how slow shipping has been this pandemic Christmas season.) While these candles are more expensive than cheap non-beeswax they are completely worth the extra cost. The candles are exactly as described, beautiful, burn very nicely, and have the loveliest gentle, slightly sweet natural scent. I'll be ordering from you again, and recommending you to others. Thank you!
Will decorative molded beeswax candles burn the same way as pillar candles?
Yes and no. They have many similar characteristics and need similar wick care. However their shape means that they often don’t consume wax as efficiently, can spill or pieces can drop off. We recommend they are always burned on a tray or pillar plate and wick size is closely monitored.
My candle spilled some wax on the plate, what can I do with it?
Beeswax has many uses, but you can also burn the wax! Our advice is to break it into small pieces and carefully and gradually feed to a burning candle with a large melt pool. This can extend burn time of your larger candle dramatically and uses all the wax!
What do I do with the floating candles?
Gently place them in a bowl of water (ensuring the top doesn’t get wet) and light and enjoy! Alternately our floating candles can also be placed on a plate or tray like a regular candle. They actually burn a little bit longer this way.
They are made only from 100% pure beeswax – the only naturally occurring candle wax! No chemical processing or additives required!
They are made only from the finest 100% pure Canadian beeswax. No mixing, or cutting with other waxes.
Every candle is handmade and hand packaged in Canada.
Our paper and packaging are either recycled or recyclable (usually both) - and all sourced locally!
