    Beeswax dinner candle pair dipped

    £8.00

    Hand dipped in a workshop in Alison’s home county of Cumbria with English beeswax. This is a traditional method of dipping a length of taut wick into molten wax, removing it, allowing the wax to cool and repeating multiple times to build up thin layers of wax and eventually creating these superb candles.

    On opening these candles smell beautifully of honey.

    Beeswax is the ‘King’ of all waxes, it burns slowly with a perfect flame and beeswax are the only candles which apparently don’t pollute the atmosphere. In fact, they produce a negative ion when they burn thus making dust and pollen drop form the air. Are these the perfect candles to burn for hay fever sufferers? We think so!

    We’ve photographed the candles showing the wax ‘polished’ and shiny, and matt and milky with ‘bloom’. Bloom is a natural process of beeswax, ageing and environment creates a milky and matt finish on the wax – the bloom – preferred by Americans apparently. If your candles develop a bloom and you prefer them looking shiny, then all that’s needed is to rub gently with a fine cloth and voila!

  • Beeswax dinner candle pair, handrolled with fine glittered spiral edge

    £6.00

    These we love to make by decorating a sheet of ‘foundation’ wax with the finest dusting of glitter which highlights the spiral top to the wax and then hand rolling each candle.

    It’s a traditional activity, cathartic and lovely for the hands. Foundation is the sheet of wax, imprinted with the honeycomb and given to the bees as a base for them to draw their honeycomb. For bees to make wax they have to consume vast amounts of honey; for 1lb weight of wax bees need to eat 5lb weight of honey (having collected and created it first of course). So we help them along by providing the sheet wax in a frame.

    On opening the natural beeswax candles they smell beautifully of honey. The coloured options lose this sweetness during the processing and retain all the natural goodness of beeswax candles.
