These taper candles are made from 100% pure beeswax with a cotton wick.
Burning beeswax is said to improve and purify air quality as well as benefit those with asthma and environmental sensitivities.
Not only that, but these candles smell beautiful due to the natural aroma of honey and floral nectar (please note this is a subtle smell when the candle is lit).
Beeswax is environmentally friendly, non-toxic and burns 'clean' when done correctly.
Before purchasing and using our candles, please ensure you have read the candle safety information page, which can be found here.
Each candle is approx. 18cm tall and approx. 1.6cm in diameter (at the bottom).
These candles do fit a lot of candle holders but ensure you measure before ordering as holders vary.
On average these candles burn for around 6 hours each.
Colour and scent
The colour of beeswax can range from a pale cream to yellow to almost brown/gold, therefore the colour may vary from the picture.
The exact smell can also vary between batches but is always a delightful floral honey scent.
The beeswax we use for the taper candles is either from our own hives, or has been sourced in the UK and is of the highest quality.
Burning your candle
These candles should be placed in an appropriate fire-proof holder for safety (and to avoid mess). They are not designed to stand alone as they will fall over. Ensure you do not let them burn right to the bottom of the candle.
The candles may drip but this is often avoided by following the tips below/on the card which you will receive with the candle.
How to make sure you get the most out of your candle
Make sure your candle is in a holder whilst lit, and that the holder is on a flat surface.
Make sure the wick is trimmed to around 5mm before lighting. If your flame gets too tall or the wick has a build up of carbon at the end then extinguish the candle, trim the wick and relight.
Rather than blowing your candle out, you should extinguish the candle by using a snuffer.
Always retrim the wick to 5mm before relighting. You can use small scissors or nail clippers if you don’t have a wick trimmer.
If the candle is burning more on one side then make sure it's on a level surface, make sure the wick is central, and make sure it's not in a draft.
These tips will help ensure you get the maximum burn time from your beeswax candle.
For more tips and information see our candle information page.
Always burn within sight and keep away from drafts and vibrations. Keep out of reach of pets and children.
Never burn candles on or near anything that could catch fire.
