Frequently Asked Questions
Why choose 100% Beeswax candles?
How much time do you have...the list is pretty endless. To start, beeswax candles burn brighter, longer, cleaner. Not only do beeswax candles burn cleaner than any other wax, they actually clean the air. Yes, clean the air. If that doesn't get you excited consider that beeswax is non-toxic, all-natural, biodegradable, and renewable.
Why choose OUR 100% Beeswax candles?
We regionally source our beeswax, which means we get if from local, family owned and operated beekeepers that we trust. Our beeswax comes from happy bees who we know are treated right, no factory farms, no imported wax from outside the US. Its important to us to source local, help support small farms, and keep beekeeping alive. Bees are an integral part of our eco and agricultural system.

Beyond doing good for bees...we also do good for others. We are a cause driven company and portion of proceeds from each purchase benefit local and national charities.
Are your candles 100% Beeswax?
Yes! All our candles are made from 100% regionally sourced Beeswax, pure and natural. We do not use fillers or mix any other wax.
My candle cracked after I burned it?
No problem! The pool of wax that is left after the candle has burned will cool quickly. The rapid cooling can result in cracking. But have no fear, this does not affect the quality or burn time and once you relight your candle it will continue to burn properly.
There is a white cloudy film on my candle
Great news! This film is called "bloom" and occurs only on 100% beeswax candles. It's a great sign that your candle is the real deal. This occurs as they age and is completely natural. It can easily be removed with a dry cloth or left alone - it doesn't affect the candle in anyway.
How long will my candle burn
Average burn time for our candles is 30hrs.
I have beeswax leftover after my candle burned. What should I do with it.
Do not throw it away! Those bees worked hard to produce that beautiful wax, use it! You can put your glass in the freezer and pop out any left over wax. This blog has some great ideas to use the remaining precious beeswax. AND! Once the wax is out of your glass, you can reuse it to hold pencils, toothbrushes, or even use as a drinking glass. Win, win!
