100% Natural Beeswax.
Beeswax is a renewable all natural product with no additives or fillers. It is safe enough to eat, use in cosmetics, and more commonly as a clean burning & bright fuel source as a beeswax candle. Unlike most of the manufactured paraffin candles, beeswax is hypo-allergenic, great for people with allergies or other sensitivities and those of us who want a safe, clean burning candle in our homes.
100% Cotton Wick.
Following the Bee Hive Candles philosophy of keeping our candles all natural and safe to burn, we use only 100% cotton wick in every candle we make. While most candle manufactures in the US no longer use lead core wicks, some of the imported and most likely cheap paraffin candles found in stores can still contain lead wicks. Our wicks are square braided cotton and have been selected for each candle to provide a bright flame and optimum wax pool to prevent tunneling.
Undeniable Unique Texture.
There are many patterns found in nature but few of them are as amazing as the rows of hexagons that bees always create when making honeycomb. Bee Hive Candles' honeycomb candles are the perfect way to bring this iconic pattern into your home.
In following with the amazing amount of effort that bees expend to create beeswax, all of our honeycomb candles are carefully crafted by hand. Each candle is tightly rolled around a cotton wick and neatly finished to ensure the best burning characteristics. They are then packaged using minimal materials (all reusable and recyclable) to keep with our environmentally friendly concerns.
Potpourri of Colors.
Our beeswax honeycomb candles allow you to get the benefits of burning beeswax while adding the choice of 17 colors. We can make beeswax candles to match any holiday, season, or home decor. Honeycomb candles are an easy way to add an accent of color to any room.
While there are not any candles that should be allowed to burn unattended, beeswax candles burn safer than others with minimal maintenance. Beeswax candles are naturally drip free and do not require chemicals to make them dripless like paraffin candles. The molecular structure and higher melting point of beeswax makes beeswax candles much better at holding their wax pool. This fact combined with a properly maintained wick and draft free environment will prevent drips from occurring.
Smoke & Soot Free.
No one wants their home to be covered in candle soot, which is a common result of burning paraffin candles. An excellent way to prevent this from occurring but still enjoy the beauty of a candle is to use beeswax candles. When burned in a draft free environment with a wick trimmed to 1/4" a beeswax candle will burn bright and clean without the smoke or soot.
