Apollo was the son of Zeus and Leto, twin of Artemis and many other things in ancient Greek lore; including the God of Light. How perfect is that!

Traditional beeswax chandlery is the alchemy of turning flowers into light. Warm, luxurious illumination that celebrates your home. Our artisanal candles are hand-crafted in our studio in the Pacific Northwest, using only pure, wild Canadian beeswax, filtered through clay and charcoal to ensure quality.
Beeswax is both sustainable and protects biodiversity; a natural, renewable resource, sourced from apiaries throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The colour of the wax changes season to season, depending on what flowers the bees gather pollen and nectar from - to feed the hive. As the bees move from flower to flower they pollinate our planet.
Our candles are a treasured gift of aroma, form, and an indulgent, intimate light.
Trim the wick after each burn to a quarter of an inch, slightly longer for tapered candles.
As the candle burns down, gently thumb in the melted wax inwards, to contain the wax pool.
To extinguish, smartly press the wick into the wax pool. This will not only ensure the absence of smoke but will re-coat the wick for the next lighting.
Bloom is a whitish patina that may form over time. This is the natural rising of minerals to the surface, and may be wiped away with a lint-free cloth.
I purchased this at the Toronto One of A Kind show in 2019... the detail is exquisite, from the draping of the fabric to the curls in the hair... very reminiscent of a certain French producer of candles and wax busts. I have not been brave enough to burn it yet, it's just too beautiful!
That you for your kind words and we appreciate your candle knowledge :-)
