FAQ Legitimate questions.
- How long do your candles burn?
Candles have different burn times depending on the conditions in which they are burned, the type of wax, and other factors.
- How do you make your beautiful beeswax candles?
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.
- What is the difference between soy and beeswax?
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.
- Why not use paraffin wax?
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.
- How do you add scent to your candles?
Beeswax candles have a subtle and naturally occurring honey-like fragrance. For our soy candles we use only premium-grade fragrance oils.
