About Our Beeswax Candles

About Wood + Honey Beeswax Candles -

  • Each candle is hand poured and handcrafted from start to finish. 
  • ​Made from 100% pure beeswax that has been filtered without harsh chemicals or bleaches. 
  • Our beeswax is sustainably sourced from a 4th generation beekeeper family who is passionate about bee health and preservation. 
  • Our 100% pure beeswax is free from chemicals, additives, and impurities to create the most amazing base for our candles.
  • Because beeswax is such a hard wax and typically struggles to burn well in vessels, we blend our pure beeswax with a smidge of beeswax coco cream wax. A completely non toxic, chemical free wax that allows the 100% pure beeswax to be soft enough to burn beautifully in our vessels and avoid tunneling.
  • Wood wicks come from untreated natural wood with lead free bases. 
  • All of our candles are scented with toxin-free, paraben-free, phthalate-free, gluten-free, skin-safe, and cruelty-free (leaping bunny compliant) fragrance oils. 
  • Free from all the ingredients found on California Prop 65 list while also avoiding 5 main hazard groups to include: Carcinogens, mutagens, reproductive toxins, organ toxins and acute toxins. 

Feel free to check out our FAQs for more information.

We are proud to offer candles that are non-toxic and free from all of the above mentioned “nasties” that we want to avoid.  Nothing but the cleanest burn for you and yours.

Recommended Burning Instructions

Recommended Burning Instructions
  • Beeswax is a very hard wax and burns very hot and slow. These candles should last you for a while. 
  • Wood wick is cut to appropriate height when new.  Make sure the wick is kept to about a 1/4" before lighting.  Too high and the flame can get smokey and a little wild, too low and it may suffocate in the pool of wax.  
  • Before relighting your candle each time, be sure to break off some of the previously burnt wick. This will help prevent smoking and assist in ideal flame height.
  • It is not uncommon to hear a soft crackling sound while burning, which is why wood wicks are so cool.
  • Recommended burn time of at least 2 to 3 hours to avoid tunneling. 
  • Tunneling may occur initially until a big enough wax pool is made, and the glass begins to warm. 
  • Cracking in the wax near the wick is common due to the fast cooling time and hard nature of beeswax.  Be patient when lighting.
  • DO NOT extinguish with water. 
  • DO NOT replace lid until candle has cooled completely.
  • Discontinue use if glass is broken or cracked.
  • DO NOT BURN when candle has a 1/2" of wax or less.
