Frequently Asked Questions

Are your beeswax candles 100% pure beeswax?

Yes. Every single one of our beeswax candles uses 100% pure beeswax gathered from the USA. We do not mix any other waxes or fillers with our beeswax.

Are your candle wicks 100% cotton?

Yes. All of our beeswax candles use 100% cotton wick.

Why does my beeswax candle sometimes seem hard to light?

In order for a candle to work properly, it needs to pass melted wax through the wick. Beeswax melts at a higher temperature and requires thicker wicks, therefore it is necessary to hold the lighter next to the wick for a longer time than other types of candles.

Do you add chemicals to your beeswax candles?

No. We add no chemicals to our beeswax. All of our wax is 100% pure and natural.

Do you add scents to your beeswax candles?

No, we do not add scents to any of our candles. Beeswax candles naturally have a slight honey scent.

Do you add colors to your beeswax candles?

No: Our beeswax candles do not contain any dyes or additives. The raw beeswax comes from the hive and is a light golden yellow color, which gives the candle a natural yellow color.

Why don't my burn times match your listed burn times?

Our burn time is not a guarantee, it is a conservative estimate based on testing of hundreds of beeswax candles. Results can vary somewhat based on your environment and burning preferences. Proper wick maintenance can also play a role in how fast your candle burns.

Where Is your beeswax collected from?

All of our beeswax is gathered from the USA. Our source of beeswax comes from trusted beekeepers in Bayonne NJ.

What's the white cloudy film on my beeswax candle?

This white film is called bloom. This is normal and occurs on all pure beeswax candles. This happens because some of the components of the beeswax migrate to the surface, and can appear a few weeks to a few months after the candle is already made.

Do you make all of the beeswax candles that you sell?

Yes. Every single beeswax candle that we sell is made by us, in our warehouse located in Bayonne NJ.

Do your candle wicks contain lead?

No, all our candle wicks are lead-free. All of our beeswax candles have a 100% cotton wick.
