Wonderful Candles!

I always light a candle before I sit down to write every day, but I was getting allergic reactions to the scented candles I was using. I found Honey Candles online and ordered a box of pillars. I love these candles! The beeswax smells beautiful but they don’t make me sneeze and they’re long lasting, too. All in all, a great product that I highly recommend!

Natural Beeswax Sparrow & Bee Hive Candles

The 2 specialty natural beeswax candles, i.) the sparrow & ii.) the Bee Hive - were both beautiful works of art as well as unique gifts to cherish. The delivery was timely and their the perfect gifts for all ages.

Best candles ever!

I absolutely love your candles! I ordered the beehive, 3 birds and a lavender egg.
I gave some away as Easter gifts and burned a bird candle at our Easter supper.
Thank you so much for the beautiful candles you make!

Amazing customer service and products!

Not only were the products amazing but so was the customer service. I appreciated the quick responses and also the but I also appreciated the email correspondence which gave more information about the company and thanked me for my order! I am always more willing and excited to support a small business and people who take pride in their products!
The candles were also so amazing. I noticed a difference in being able to have them lit for longer and not have all the chemicals of an ordinary candle. The burn time was so long as well!

Healthy Burn:)

Hi, yes Jill everything arrived as ordered, this was a birthday gift for my granddaughter, (pink pillar). I am introducing her to the purity of your candles, and she loved it, also her favourite colour. I feel much better knowing that her health will not be affected by burning the natural bee wax candles. She has a daily yoga routine and has her candle burning, during this exercise. So thank you to you and yours for this beautiful natural product. Sincerely Mary-Lou.


How do you make your beeswax candles?

Our candles are all carefully handmade in small batches. Most candles are made by pouring liquid wax into molds but in some cases (such as Birthday, Gala, Hanukkah and Chakra candlesticks), the wick is dipped into wax until it reaches the desired size. Then they are cooled, trimmed, finished, labelled and boxed.

What are the benefits of beeswax?

Beeswax is all natural, it is the only natural candle wax that does not require dedicated land use! It is a by-product of the honey farming and food pollination and supports optimal food production. When compared to other waxes, beeswax naturally burns cleaner, brighter, hotter and longer than most choices and does not require chemical processing or additives to enhance these properties. With an inherently pleasant but gentle aroma, beeswax is the perfect choice for the eco-friendly home.

What do you use to color your beeswax?

We use very minute amounts of enviro dye to make our colored candles. Our dye is REACH compliant, vegetable based, not tested on animals, is solvent free and has no components listed on the California Prop 65 list.

Why are my natural beeswax candles different shades?

Beeswax comes off the honey frames in a variety of colors ranging from pale beige to dark caramel. The color of the wax is dependent on what the bees are foraging on at the time and changes with the season and location. Although we do our best to blend our wax to maintain consistency, beeswax is a natural product and colour variation should be expected and appreciated!

Why are my candles covered in a white film?

All 100% pure beeswax candles will develop bloom over time. This whitish film is an indicator of purity and is cherished by candle connoisseurs. Fully developed bloom will sparkle beautifully in the light and look like crystals or snowflakes. Many candle lovers like the look of fully bloomed candles, especially for Christmas. Beeswax candles that have been blended with other waxes will not develop bloom. If you prefer a polished look, simply buff with a soft cloth, nylon stockings or cheesecloth. You can also run a warm blow dryer over the candle.
