Why You'll Love Our Beeswax Candles


100% Pure Beeswax

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.

Honeycomb Candles rolled by hand

Hand Rolled

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.

Beeswax is Naturally Honey Scented

Honey Scented

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.

Patchwork of Honeycomb Colors

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.

Beeswax Honeycomb Texture

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.

Beeswax Candles Are Smoke and Soot Free

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 Generates Negative Ions

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.

Beeswax Candles are Drip Resistant

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


Candle Sizing

Candle Size

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 Times

Burn Time

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.

 General Candle Safety

  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Keep candles away from children.
  • Burn candles in a draft-free environment.
  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4".

 See Beeswax Candle Safety for more safety tips.

 Taper Burning Tips

  • Place securely in a taper holder when burning.
  • Keep taper vertical to avoid drips.
  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish the candle flame mess free.

    I bought them as a present so I can not tell how well they fit in a holder and burn, but they most certainly look very nice.

  2. Beautifully Made

    Will order again and again. Exceptionally well made and beautiful; I have them blessed (b/c they are 100% beeswax) and use them for Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and throughout the year. They come in many colors and are suitable for all occasions. They burn cleanly and evenly.

  3. Perfect burning candle

    Anonymous

    Not only did they burn perfectly, but they last a very long time. I lit 16 inch tapers last night, burned them for 4+ hours and I still have new looking 12 inch tapers ready for another dinner party. The beauty is more than skin deep.

    I always liked your candles. It is very hard to find 16 inch candles. They will be placed in a 1860’s candlebra.

  5. Adequate, but not the best

    Anonymous

    I’ve been using beeswax candles from Knorr for years, but they’ve gotten harder to find, so I bought a half dozen pair of these. Unfortunately the diameter is a bit smaller and they don’t fit as easily in my candle holders. The apricot color was a bit faded, but the red green and mint colors were excellent. They still ship with lots of peanuts too. I had hopes.

      Hello Anonymous, thanks for your feedback! Our honeycomb tapers have a listed base diameter of 3/4″ and are a bit narrower than our poured solid tapers. If they don’t fit your particular taper holders you may try using ‘stickum’, an adhesive that’s designed to help hold the taper in place. If your package contains peanuts, please note they are cornstarch peanuts and fully biodegradable.
