Beeswax Candles
Our Beeswax Candles and Polish

Enjoy the naturally pleasant aroma of a beeswax candle which burns with a softer more mellow light. Beeswax has been used for thousands of years as a source of light and in today's ever more environmentally conscience world the truly sustainable choice for those wishing to get back to basics.

Made from the energy of the sun, beeswax is a synthesis of the earth’s plant and animal kingdoms being a product manufactured by the bees from the nectars and pollens they collect. We merely collect the wax, render it and make the candles.

So, our candles are made from 100% pure beeswax and are hand made by Carol – aka – The Bee Widow. We have a range of moulded and rolled candles to suit a variety of needs. These include church and table candles as well as solid beeswax candles.

As our candles are all hand-made so variations may occur in burn times given. To get the best from our candles, burn in a suitable container - we recommend a candle holder with a spike - keep out of drafts, trim the wick after around 2 hours and burn for around 3-4 hours at a time. If a well of wax occurs, snuff and allow to harden; or carefully pour excess into a suitable container (remember it’s hot). The candle will give off a pleasant aroma & provides a soft, warmer light than an ordinary candle.
