Burning a Pure Beeswax Honey Candles® Candlestick is sometimes the best choice.

Thursday, July 28, 2011 | By Pat Cattermole

I love all the natural beeswax Honey Candles®.  If you come to my house you will find a variety of pure beeswax Honey Candles® - Pillars, Tealights, VotivesOrnamentals and many kinds of beeswax candlesticks. Beeswax candlesticks include 12 inch tapers (our only tapered candle), 6 inch tubes, 9 inch bases and 6 inch columns. I always have the right natural beeswax candle for how I want to burn a candle. Sometimes for me the right choice is a beeswax candlestick because I may only want to burn it for a short while. Pure natural beeswax candlesticks can burn a long time, but if I only want to burn a candle a very short time I know for sure I will burn a candlestick. They are versatile because other beeswax Honey Candles® like PillarsVotivesTealights must be burned longer to burn efficiently.

A beeswax candlestick is good for a short term power outage. It isn’t unusual in a wind storm for the electricity to be knocked out for 15-20 minutes. Any of our beeswax candlesticks whether they are tubes, tapers,  bases or columns will work great. Light it for just a short time if you need it and put it out without any problems. Remember that beeswax candlesticks are very prone to drafts so keep them away from open windows, fans etc. beeswax Honey Candles® candlesticks are virtually dripless unless they are exposed to drafts. Depending on how bad the draft is they can drip quite badly.

For a special dinner the right choice for me is beeswax colored taper pairs in brass candle holders. The color depends on the event. For past Christmases I’ve burned Burgundy, TangerineViolet and Mountain Jade. I use beeswax 9 inch bases or beeswax 6 inch columns as Memorial candles to be lit for a few minutes to honor the memory of a special person before I retire to bed in the evenings. If you need a beeswax candle to burn a short time or a long time be sure to have a natural beeswax Honey Candles® candlestick tucked away in your house. It will be there in an emergency or anytime you want to just enjoy a bit of candle light, the natural honey scent of fine beeswax and good company.

Experience managing a small rural printing business and 15 years as an elected public school trustee has been a benefit as Honey Candles moves through the need for flexibility and the demands of rapidly changing natural products marketing. I am the Sales Manager and most likely to be the one answering the phone when you call. Social Media and blogging for Honey Candles has been a recent addition to my list of skills.
