Give the Gift of Beeswax Candles

Thursday, October 12, 2017 | By Pat Cattermole
We have often spoken of beeswax being a ‘gift’ of nature. It is so perfect. It is the purest and most natural of all candle waxes, with the least processing and no additives. Beeswax is the only wax that is essentially used in its native state, with only filtering for processing. It burns cleanly as it has a high melting point resulting in long burn times. Honey Candles only uses premium quality cappings wax, the best grade of beeswax. This is the wax that the bees use to seal the honeycomb when it is filled with honey. This wax is cleaner and has fewer impurities.

Now you can give this natural gift to someone in the form of a beeswax candle. What an exquisite gift! It is perfect for those who have small living spaces because it is consumable. Finding gifts for someone who is a minimalist or has limited space for things is sometimes hard. Food is always an option but candles are also a good alternative as they are burned up and gone – just what someone who is trying to keep their possessions to a minimum wants.

Totally non-toxic for the environment, beeswax candles are also the right gift for someone who loves natural products and choses a ‘green’ lifestyle. They will not release harmful emissions into your home. Even the colored beeswax Honey Candles® are colored with only minute amounts of enviro-dye that meets the stringent European (REACH) standards. Read more about enviro-dyes. Honey Candles only uses beeswax produced in Western Canada and always looks for packaging produced and printed as close to home as possible.

Anyone who loves beauty and sophistication will love beeswax Honey Candles® as a gift. The candle makers in our shop know only the best candles get to go out into the marketplace and each candle is inspected for blemishes or flaws. Beeswax candles do not have to be primitive, and no one could describe Honey Candles® quality as less than elegant!

There are so many reasons to give Honey Candles® beeswax candles as a gift. Annie-Claude of St-Didace PQ e-mailed us and told us why she chose Honey Candles as a gift,

“I am going to bring them (the candles) to a Tibetan center in the state of New York, the Lama says they are the best, I had brought him candles from different places, over the years, but he prefers yours...your candles enlighten the world.”

I love that play on words, yes we en-lighten the world with the beautiful glow of beeswax candles!

Pat Cattermole picture Published by Pat Cattermole - I had the good fortune to be hired at Honey Candles in the fall of 2004. 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.
