Candles have different burn times depending on the conditions in which they are burned, the type of wax, and other factors.
We carefully melt beeswax, paying attention to the temperature and other variables. Meanwhile, we wick our molds with safe, pre-waxed hemp wick. When the wax has cooled to the correct temperature it is slowly poured into the molds to produce quality candles.
Soy wax is made from the oil of soybeans. The beans are cleaned, de-hulled, and rolled into flakes. The oil is extracted from the flakes and hydrogenated. This process alters the melting point of the oils, making it a solid at room temperature.
Leftover bean husks are often made into animal feed.
Beeswax is a natural wax produced by honeybees. The wax is formed into “scales” by wax-producing glands in the abdominal area of worker bees, who discard it in or at the hive.
Paraffin wax is petroleum-based and therefore not a renewable resource. In addition, many resources we looked at had found that paraffin candles emit toxic chemicals like toluene and benzene.
Beeswax candles have a subtle and naturally occurring honey-like fragrance. For our soy candles we use only premium-grade fragrance oils.
