Why are beeswax candles the best?

Going back in history, beeswax was the preferred candle type by royalty, nobility and the church because of its pleasant aroma, beautiful light, and clean burn, but only available to those with the means to purchase them. Beeswax candles are still the premium candle, but the good news is they are no longer out of reach for most consumers. Let us show you why beeswax candles are the cleanest, brightest, and longest burning of candle waxes.

100% PURE

Beeswax candles do not require chemical processing. Beeswax is one of the densest waxes and has a high melting point (145°F), not requiring any hardeners, additives, or chemical treatments to make a quality product. Our candle making process is simple. When honeycomb is uncapped to release the honey during extraction, the cappings are saved, rinsed, and melted to remove impurities. Once our beeswax is clarified, it’s ready to be poured.


Because beeswax has a higher melting point than other waxes, the light it emits is the brightest, most warm-toned flame much like the spectrum of sunlight. It burns slower and drips less, making them last longer than most other candles. When kept out of drafts and wicked properly, beeswax candles may be drip free.


Each batch of wax varies in color and scent, based on the flowers the bees visited. But no matter the flowers, all of our candles have a subtle and pleasing, honey-like scent.



Unlike many other candles, burning beeswax may purify the air. Beeswax candles produce negative ions when burned, and those ions help to neutralize pollutants in the air. This helps eliminate dust, odors, and mold in the atmosphere, easing allergy and asthma symptoms and improving breathing for anyone nearby, making beeswax candles a good choice for those with allergies, asthma, sinus problems, and sensitivities. Some say negative ions also increase a feeling of well-being and creativity.


Our beeswax is sourced from our own hives and those of other local beekeepers. By choosing our beeswax candles, you are supporting these beekeepers in raising healthy bees. Many other candle materials come from industries that harm or deplete the environment. Beeswax is a natural, renewable resource from an industry that helps the environment. Bees play a pivotal role in our lives by pollinating the foods we eat and plants in the wild. Beeswax is just another miracle that comes from these amazing insects.
