Beeswax Taper CandlesMade by Bees
The perfect hostess gift.
A package of 2 tapered candles, available in 6 inches (burn time 6 - 8 hours) or 8 inches (burn time 8 - 10 hours).
Our 100% pure Canadian beeswax candles burn three times longer than paraffin candles and contain no artificial additives, fragrances or paraffin. As it burns, pure beeswax purifies the air from mould, dust and allergens.
Cut wick to a ¼ inch for best burning.
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.
