First recognized by the Ancient Romans for its delightful aromatic properties, beeswax was one of the first ingredients used for making candles. Beeswax, which burns very slowly and smells deliciously sweet, has since become the preferred candle-making material of artisans all over the world.
Because the cost of beeswax has historically been prohibitively expensive, it was, until relatively recently, a commodity reserved for the wealthy and members of the clergy. In thirteenth century England, beeswax became so valuable that The English Tallow Chandlers and The Worshipful Company of Wax Chandlers were charted to regulate and control the beeswax trade. Laws preventing the adulteration of the wax were passed and the penalties for breaking them were quite stiff.
Beeswax candles create a beautiful ambiance with their warm glow and sweet, subtle honey scent. Best of all, they even clean the air in your home! Whereas paraffin candles pollute, beeswax candles create negative, air-purifying ions in much the same way that houseplants do.
Beeswax candles can add a touch of elegance to your home or make a memorable gift for someone you cherish. Take a look around and see what we’re able to make with 100% pure, natural beeswax.
