Stopping to check out or buy beeswax candles? All our candles are handcrafted, handpoured (hence expect slight variations from candle to candle), cotton-wicked and made of 100% pure beeswax sourced from the USA, never a blend of beeswax and paraffin wax or other waxes. And no chemicals are added to render the candles smokeless or dripless. We've specially brought these candles into the store for two reasons - Many people here have not heard of it, and for those who have, they can't find it! The price is all worth it when you know the truths about the candles most people are burning: Beeswax Candles Versus Paraffin Candles.
The raw material of these candles, beeswax is the waxy substance produced by the worker bees to build their hexagonal comb cells in their hives. It is estimated that the bees must fly 150,000 miles to collect enough nectar to produce six pounds of honey just to secrete one pound of wax. And for every 100 pounds of honey harvested, the beekeeper can only obtain about 1-2 pounds of the beeswax. This is how scarce beeswax is and explains why the price of beeswax candles is so high. Precious beeswax!
