Use an arrangement of multiple votive holders with our beeswax votive candles to create the perfect relaxing or romantic setting. Each hypo-allergenic beeswax candle is hand crafted using a lead-free cotton wick and lightly filtered 100% beeswax from the USA.
As they burn our votive beeswax candles release a natural honey scent and produce a soft soothing candlelight. These compact and long burning beeswax votives are great in an emergency situation, or just a night away from it all. Votives are great for bathrooms and kitchens.
Our beeswax candles are naturally honey scented. Scent varies slightly based on honey, pollen, and propolis present in the beeswax.
A candle's scent throw varies based on personal sensitivities and environment.
Burn time is a close approximation and will vary somewhat based on your environment and burning preferences.
Our burn times are conservative averages based on our testing. Proper wick maintenance helps.
Our "Natural" color beeswax candles are a light golden yellow color. This color varies a little between each batch of beeswax.
The color is determined by the remaining pollen and propolis in the beeswax. About beeswax candles.
We hand pour all of our beeswax candles and the dimensions listed may vary just a little with each candle.
Beeswax shrinks a bit during cooling, making it more art than science for final sizing.
Note - Votive beeswax candles should always be burned in a votive holder as they don't hold their own wax pool. Placing a small amount of water in the bottom of the holder (prior to setting the votive in the holder) will make it easier to remove any remaining wax once the candle has burned out and cooled.
100% Natural Beeswax
Beeswax is a renewable all natural product with no additives or fillers. It's non-toxic properties make it perfect for a clean burning and 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.
All Natural Wick
Bee Hive Candles' philosophy is creating beeswax candles that are all natural and safe to burn. We use lead-free cotton and other natural wick in every beeswax candle we make. Be wary as some imported paraffin candles still contain lead wicks. Our lead-free wicks have been selected for each beeswax candle to provide a bright flame and optimum wax pool to prevent tunneling.
Incredibly Long Burn Times
Bee Hive Candles' solid beeswax candles are the most durable and long lasting candles you can own. They burn brighter, longer, and cleaner than any other type of candle. Compared by burn time, beeswax candles are usually a better value than paraffin, even when beeswax appears to cost more. Try our beeswax candles, the incredibly long burn time will simply amaze you!
Hand Poured & Hand Finished
We pour each and every solid beeswax pillar, taper, votive, and tea light by hand. It takes a practiced hand to ensure each candle is poured correctly - we don't want any air bubbles, loose wicks, cosmetic streaks or imperfections. Once the beeswax candle has cooled and been removed from the mold, we inspect each candle to ensure it's quality. We have no "factory second" beeswax candles; if the candle doesn't make the quality inspection, it goes right back into the wax melter.
Some candle makers will ship you their product directly after removing it from the mold where it is often unleveled, uneven, and simply unattractive. We've always taken the time to carefully hand finish each candle so that our beeswax candles are as stunning to look at as they are beautiful to burn.
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 while still enjoying 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 smoke or soot.
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.
Natural Honey Scent and Color
Our beeswax comes direct from beekeepers in the Pacific Northwest where the honey bees fly among raspberries, fireweed, and wildflowers along the winding Nooksack River. The resulting wax is a beautiful shade of yellow that has a natural aromatic honey fragrance. We simply reshape the bees' creation; the color and the scent are created by the hardworking bees. We do not add anything to our beeswax and only filter out the large particles that could interfere with the flame.
Beeswax May Have Health Benefits
Negative ions, which can make you feel better, are most commonly found near moving water, such as crashing waves, thunderstorms, and waterfalls. The moving water causes the surrounding air to move and that along with sunlight and radiation breaks apart molecules of air. The broken pieces end up with extra electrons making them negative ions.
While it is still debated and not yet scientifically proven, it is believed that there are other natural negative ion generators too, including our specialty, beeswax candles.
Our naturally colored beeswax candles do not contain any dyes or additives. The raw beeswax we use comes from the hive as a light golden yellow color, which we call "Natural" when we refer to the candle's color. The natural color of beeswax is determined by the remaining pollen and propolis in the wax; this color varies a little between each batch.
All of our color-added beeswax candles (Holiday Red, Hunter Green, etc.) contain a small amount of dye to achieve their crisp vibrant colors.
The dyes we use for our colored beeswax candles are formulated with eco-friendly ingredients. They offer excellent color consistency and strength for crisp, clean, bright candles. The colored dye makes up a very small percentage of the overall beeswax candle, much less than 1/10th of 1%.
The dyes do not contain hazardous solvents or additives (such as naphtha or naphthalene used in other dyes). The dyes are never tested on animals. No dye ingredients are on the California Prop 65 list of cancer causing ingredients.
Our brightly colored beeswax pillars give you more choices when burning beeswax and are an easy way to add a splash of excitement to your candle arrangements. Our natural colored beeswax does not contain dye.
Available in a variety of shiny colors. 100% pure beeswax, lead-free wick.
Our colorful beeswax candles can be kept polished for a shiny modern look or let their age show by allowing the bloom to appear over time.
The bright color is a great backdrop for showcasing the white antique finish of the bloom.
