Our Advent Beeswax Honeycomb Taper bundle contains 3 purple & 1 pink taper or 3 blue & 1 pink taper. An optional 5th white taper is also available. Each candle has a lead-free 100% cotton wick and 100% pure beeswax from the USA.
Celebrate the joy and anticipation of the Christmas season with the lighting of the traditional Advent wreath.
Honeycomb colors will vary slightly from their product photos above due to browser, monitor, and device settings. Please note that the color of our honeycomb sheets may vary a bit from batch to batch.
Our honeycomb beeswax tapers candles are drip-resistant. Extra care is needed when burning as their thin honeycomb design is fragile and can make it difficult for the tapers to hold their wax pool. A properly trimmed wick, vertical alignment in a taper holder, and a draft-free area are a must to keep these tapers from dripping (see all honeycomb taper burning tips).
Why You'll Love Our Beeswax Candles
100% Pure Beeswax
We use only clean, lightly filtered, 100% pure beeswax from beeswax cappings in our beeswax candles, with no fillers or additives. Its non-toxic properties make it perfect for a clean burning and bright fuel source as a beeswax candle.
All of our beeswax is made in the USA.
Unlike paraffin candles, beeswax is hypo-allergenic, great for people with allergies or other sensitivities, and those of us who want a clean burning candle in our homes.
All of our honeycomb candles are expertly rolled by hand. Each candle is tightly rolled around a 100% cotton wick and neatly finished to ensure the best burning characteristics.
Each honeycomb candle is inspected to ensure its quality. We have no "factory second" beeswax candles; if the candle doesn't make the grade we remake it until it's perfect.
Our beeswax candles naturally give off a luscious honey aroma. Scent varies slightly based on honey, pollen, and propolis present in the beeswax.
A candle's scent throw (i.e. the candle's ability to deliver an aroma) varies based on personal sensitivities and environment.
Potpourri of Colors
Our beeswax honeycomb candles allow you to get the benefits of burning beeswax while adding a wide variety colors. You can choose 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.
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.
Smoke & Soot Free
Using clean burning beeswax candles is an excellent way to keep your home free of the smoke and soot that is a common result of burning paraffin candles.
When burned in a draft free environment with the wick trimmed to 1/4" a beeswax candle will burn bright and clean with virtually no smoke or soot.
Beeswax May Have Health Benefits
Negative ions are most commonly found near moving water, such as crashing waves, thunderstorms, and waterfalls. Negative ions are believed to produce biochemical reactions that increase levels of the mood chemical serotonin, helping to alleviate depression, relieve stress, and boost our daytime energy.
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.

Naturally Drip Resistant
A beeswax candle is less likely to drip than other types of candles because of the complex molecular structure and higher melting point of beeswax. This allows the wick to burn the molten beeswax at just the right pace so it doesn't drip out of the wax pool. These qualities combined with a properly maintained wick, a level burning surface, and draft free environment will help prevent drips from occurring.
Beeswax candles are naturally drip resistant. Paraffin candles require chemical additives, like stearic acid, to make them drip less.
Additional Details & Candle Safety
We hand roll all of our honeycomb beeswax taper candles. Our honeycomb tapers have an approximate base width of 3/4" and fit most standard size taper holders.
The dimensions listed are an approximation and will vary slightly for each candle. Please consider each candle a work of art. We make outstanding candles, but we are humans, not machines. Learn more about why candle size varies.
Burn time is a close approximation and will vary somewhat based on your environment and burning preferences. Our listed burning times are conservative averages, not a guarantee. Proper wick maintenance helps (keep wick trimmed, avoid drafts).
Some wax will remain unused after the wick has been fully burned, this is normal.
