Welcome to our new beeswax range. As the title suggests, we're doing beeswax different. With earthy tones and odd shapes, these candles aren't meant to be perfect. Made using 100% pure NZ beeswax, a cotton wick and natural vegetable dyes, our candles are made to make a statement (and sometimes, they don't even get burned they're too pretty!).
Beeswax is an excellent wax known to neutralise odours by emitting negative ions, cleaning the air of odours and bacteria. They are fragrance free and hypoallergenic, free from any artificial fragrances. On the occasion that we do use fragrance, we use essential oils (such as lavender for our black). Beeswax candles last longer than other types of wax and burn brighter but due to the nature and shape of our candles, our candles will all burn differently and you can expect your candle to burn through the middle.

There can be imperfections with using such a natural product. This won't deter from the candle's integrity and is simply aesthetics. It's how you know your product is natural and we welcome that 'rustic' feel to our candles. There may also be colour variations due to batches of wax.
NB: Always stay within sight of your candle at all times and use a drip tray. We use a metal sustainer on the bottom of the wick to protect surfaces but when your candle gets low, keep an eye on it. We recommend using baking paper under your candle as it makes for easy collection once the wax is dry. Melted wax on surfaces is hard and sticky to remove, but if your drip tray is oven-proof you can put in the oven on a low temperature to melt and remove wax.
