Our individually hand-poured 100% pure beeswax candles with hand-placed all-cotton wicks naturally have a sweet smell and golden color. Beeswax candles are long burning! When you burn 100% pure beeswax candles, they actually clean the air!
Paraffin, on the other hand, comes from the sludge at the bottom of the barrel of crude oil. Paraffin is extracted after asphalt in petroleum refining. The American Lung Association has issued a warning against breathing the eleven documented toxins (two of which are carcinogenic) that are released, along with soot, when a paraffin candle burns.
Perfect for the upcoming allergy and asthma season...

I am a mother, teacher, researcher, writer, beekeeper and candle maker; working very hard at being more present for every moment. I believe the bees and all of the natural world has so much to teach us. Playing in this craft of making candles and products with positive vibes is an absolute delight! Warm wishes from our hive to yours. May you visit and feel welcome here always.
