Our elegant red hand dipped PEI Beeswax tapers will always create a warm atmosphere.   We use the highest quality beeswax cappings which is the cleanest wax that the honey bees uses to seal the cells of the honey.

We only use chemical free and eco-friendly dye which also gives the tapers that beautiful rich color, as well as 100% cotton flat braided wicks with no additional material added.

Beeswax is non-toxic, sustainably sourced and waste free.  Beeswax will emit “Negative Ions” that will purify the air by neutralizing pollutants, molds, and odours.

Everyone benefits from burning pure beeswax, especially those who suffer from allergies and asthma.  They are safe to burn around pets and birds.

Pure Beeswax candles will emit a light very similar to sunlight.  They are very pleasing to the eye and can be a wonderful candle to burn during the winter months as there is less sunlight.

How to Use

Before first use: Trim the wick to about 5mm. You do not need to trim the wick again.

It is important to burn your candle in a draft-free area.  Any draft will cause your flame to flicker and this will cause your candle to drip over the edges.  It is best to also make sure your candle is straight in your candle holder, this will also help your candle burn evenly.

To extinguish: We recommended snuffing the candle with a candle snuffer or something similar. This is to prevent soot and smoke.

Gentle reminder: Never leave a burning candle unattended.
