Why are beeswax candles special to you?
I generally burn my candles in the evenings. I like the sweet smell and the warm lighting effect they have. The candle I most often give as a gift is the Votive or Tealight Gift Packs mostly because they are so nice looking in the recycled cardboard package.

Why are beeswax candles special to you?
I really don’t like artificial scents especially when they are used to mask odors. I like my home to just smell clean. That’s what you get from beeswax. I also like the golden flame.

Why are beeswax candles special to you? Bees do an amazing thing with beeswax - the subtle sweet fragrance, the varied yellows depending on where they’ve been foraging, its smooth, soft surface and that lovely bloom as it ages. Also the clean burn, fragrance of natural beeswax and the bright light.

Favorite candle type: 3” Pillar
Favorite candle color: Natural
Why are beeswax candles special to you? I have a great respect for the honey bee. The honey and the beeswax are in a perfect state when the bees make it and does not need to be processed, only filtered. The 3” Pillar is the best candle for my ski cabin. It gives good light, warmth, and scent and is not fragile. It lasts a long time and is low maintenance.
