The Buzz on Beeswax

Our Beeswax candles are a natural way to add light and warmth to your home while also keeping you and your family healthy. It’s easy to see why everyone’s buzzing about beeswax.

Unlike our candles, conventional ones are made with paraffin (a by-product of petroleum) along with a variety of other chemicals. Numerous studies show that when these candles are burned, they release toxic vapours into the air that are carcinogenic (cancer-causing).

Our candles however are handmade from 100% Canadian beeswax so they are wholly natural with nothing added. Also, our beeswax has been filtered and cleansed to provide high quality, pure products.

A Healthy Home with Beeswax

Beeswax candles are proven to clean the air around you. They release negative ions that neutralize contaminates like dust, pet dander, odours, mold, as well as airborne germs and bacteria, keeping the air in your home fresh and healthy.

These negative ions are even good for your skin and joints and also reverse effects of the positive ions released by household items like computers, cell phones and televisions.

Beeswax Candles Go the Distance
Not only do beeswax candles make your home a healthier space but they’re also cost effective as they burn much slower and last much longer than conventional candles.

Caring For Your Candles

Our candles burn slowly and have a calming scent that can only be found with pure beeswax. By giving your candles proper care and attention, you can ensure that you’re getting the most out of them.

By following a few simple steps, you can keep your candles glowing bright, and your house smelling fresh.

Remember: Never leave a lit candle unattended! Also keep out of reach from children and pets.

Wick Length

Before lighting candles 2” and larger in diameter, trim and maintain wick at ¼”. If the candle wick starts to flicker, the wick may be too long. Extinguish and trim wick to ¼” and then relight.


Avoid tunneling on 3”+ wide candles by burning for at least 3 hours at a time. As the candle melts, a pool of wax will form. Gently push candle walls inward as they warm, toward the flame and trim candle wick to ¼”, if necessary.


To prevent smoke when extinguishing a candle, use a metal tool to dunk the wick into the melted pool of wax. Make sure you push the wick up for easy relighting. Use a snuffer to extinguish taper candles.


Over time, a whitish film will develop on only 100% pure beeswax candles. This is a good sign to show high quality and pure beeswax! Gently polish with a soft cloth or use a warm hair dryer to remove the ‘bloom,’ if desired.


Put pillars on heat resistant plates and tealights, votives and tapers in holders. Holders should allow good air circulation to the wick and be placed on sturdy surfaces for safety. Ensuring there are no (or minimal) drafts in a room, will help with even burning.
