We make our candles in the old-timey way without molds or machines. Each candle is hand dipped many times to form the candle you see.
All our candles are created from the highest quality beeswax, cappings beeswax. Cappings wax is the cleanest newest wax the bees produce that seals the cells of the honey. We cut this wax off when we extract the honey and then filter it to 1 micron. We practice sustainable beekeeping so never take more honey or wax than the bees are OK with (we ask them!)
Beeswax releases negative ions when it burns. Pollen, dust, dirt, and any other junk in the air all carry a positive charge, and that is how they can be suspended in the air. The negative ions released from burning beeswax negate the positive charge of air contaminants, and the neutralized ions are sucked back into the burning candle or fall to the ground. Many air purifiers and water filters harness this effective negative ion technology.
We use natural cotton braided wicks with no additional materials added
Beeswax will burn clean and with no or very little soot. The wax is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and bio degradable. You could even eat it, although we don't recommend that.
