Handcrafted, from Hive to Home

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.

Please remove all packaging and labels before burning, and trim the wick a quarter of an inch.

Please never leave a flame unattended; always keep your burning candle in sight.

Maintaining A Traditional Beeswax Candle

Trim the wick before, during and after each burn to a quarter of an inch, slightly longer for tapered candles.

As the candle burns down, gently 'hug' the melted wax inwards, to contain the wax pool.

Generally, burn each candle one hour for every inch that the candle is wide; for example a three inch wide candle is best burnt for three hours to 'open' up the candle and burn the wax efficiently.

To extinguish, smartly press the wick into the wax pool, then straighten the wick and trim to a quarter of an inch.  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. It is a sign of purity in the natural beeswax.  This is the natural rising of minerals to the surface, and may be wiped away with a lint-free cloth.

Keep candle groupings well spaced; too many candles too close will generate too much heat and cause neighbouring candles to melt.

Never put essential oils into a molten wax pool; use an oil diffuser with a candle instead.

Beeswax has been used as a household aid for centuries; poured into gaps in wooden floors to prevent squeaking, rubbed on draws for an easier glide, drawn onto saw blades to prevent binding and rust, and even on metal zippers.

Bees Wax Works candles are best burned in a draft free environment, to ensure a dripless candle. A flickering flame may indicate a draft.

Local Love

Bees Wax Works are the only candle we burn in our home; these candles are just perfect. They arrive shipped plastic free, are locally handmade and love is clearly poured into each candle. We burn a taper candle every night while we sit down to share a meal and i feel blessed to be able to include Bees Wax Works in our family rituals.

Simple, beautiful, perfect

Bees Wax Works taper candles are amazing. They burn clean and evenly, leaving no wax behind. The smell is divine - earthy and sweet . I love the way they smell when burning and unlit. The colour is deep and beautiful, and they lend a sense of peace and calm to my home. They always arrive in the mail lovingly packed and I get way too excited when they show up at my door. I would highly recommend these Hand Dipped Tapers. They have certainly become a staple at our house!

So happy you are happy Miki!
