Description

Natural beeswax birthday candles, 3″ x 1/4″, with a burn time of approximately 15 minutes each.

WHY USE BEESWAX CANDLES?
Beeswax is a natural byproduct of keeping bees and collecting honey, which in turn supports our ecosystems and food production. It is also the only natural candle wax that does not require dedicated land use.  It has a gentle scent, and burns longer, brighter and cleaner than other waxes, without the need for chemical additives or processing. Overall beeswax candles are a sustainable alternative that supports Canadian farmers and the environment.

WHAT IS THIS WHITE FILM ON MY CANDLES?
This is called the “bloom” and is natural to beeswax candles. It is an indication that your candle is 100% beeswax (candles mixed with inferior waxes will not bloom) and often will add an attractive sparkle to your candle when lit. If you are not fond of the bloom, you can buff them with a soft cloth, or run a warm blow dryer over them.

Worker bees have eight wax-producing mirror glands on the inner sides of their abdominal segments from which wax is secreted when foraging is active. Bees must eat 8 lbs of honey to yield 1 lb of wax. The hive worker collects the wax flakes, chews them with her mandibles and shapes it to make honeycomb cells in which the young are raised, and honey and pollen are capped for storage.

Priscilla started Made by Bees in 2016, making beeswax wrap for storing food to create functional and minimal-waste products that help reduce plastic pollution. What started as a hobby has grown into a business that keeps her, well, as busy as a bee. “When I open up a hive, I’m just so thankful to be part of something so magical. I have this little saying that each bee is small, but together, they do big things. It’s also like saving the planet and using less plastic: you think it doesn’t make a difference, but every little bit that we can do is for the greater good.”
