Our beeswax comes directly from our hives and those of several beekeepers in Southern New Jersey where honeybees forage on blueberries, cranberries, clover and wildflowers. We clean the raw beeswax by melting, then slowly cooling it over a 24-hour period. This causes any impurities to settle to the bottom of the wax. The impurities are removed and the process is repeated several times. In this way, no chemicals are ever used to clean our beeswax. The resulting wax is a beautiful shade of yellow that has an aromatic honey fragrance which we feel is unsurpassed by any other beeswax candle we know. Each candle is hand-poured, unique and shows subtle differences in shade, color and “bloom.” Bloom is a white haze caused by natural tannins in beeswax and was highly prized as a cosmetic in ancient cultures. Bloom is defined by Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary as a “state or time of beauty, freshness and vigor.” Bloom can be removed by wiping with a soft cloth. All 100% Beeswax candles will show bloom over time.
•Trim the wick to 1/4" before lighting.
•Light the candle from the base of the wick, where it comes out of the candle to allow the beeswax to absorb into the wick.
•Keep candles away from children, pets, flammable materials, fans and drafts.
•Never leave a burning candle unattended. •Burn Pillars for Extended Periods of Time, roughly 1 hour per inch in diameter. A 3" pillar should be burned for at least 3 hours per session. Burning for extend time ensures that the wick burns the candle evenly out to the edge. •Remove all labels from candle before burning.
•Hug Your Beeswax Candles Occasionally it is necessary to gently press the edges of the candle towards the center of the candle to ensure that all of the beeswax burns properly. Do this carefully as your candle is burning or immediately after extinguishing it.
