Tips for Burning Beeswax Candles
Beeswax Candle Wick
We recommend this wick for beeswax candles 1" to 1-1/2" wide.
(Tunneling occurs when the wick burns down the center of the candle, leaving a thick outside wall of wax. Tunneling is caused by using a wick too small for the width of the candle.)
Beeswax Sheet Colors
You can mix colors to reach quantity discounts on beeswax sheets.
It's derived from the nectar of flowers, the same source as honey. Natural beeswax has several desirable properties, including its natural, sweet smell and its smokeless and dripless characteristics. Beeswax also has a relatively high melting point, approximately 145°F. This means, with attention to keeping the wick properly trimmed, a beeswax candle can burn more slowly than a comparable candle made of paraffin. Melted beeswax shrinks very little upon cooling, which means that the liquid volume is close to or equal to its dry weight. Because it doesn't shrink much, extra care must be used to prevent its sticking in molds.
Our beeswax is filtered. The color of the wax may vary by season.
