FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

    Why burn beeswax candles?
    Amongst all the waxes used throughout history, 100% pure beeswax candles burn the cleanest, burn the longest, have the brightest flame, and have been known to help people suffering from allergies, asthma and hay fever. When burned, beeswax candles release negative ions into the air, which join with the positive ions (dust, pollen, allergens) and either make them fall to the ground, or burn them up in the flame helping to purify the air in your home or office. Beeswax is a natural wax produced in the bee hive of honeybees. No chemical processing required. Pure, unadulterated - natural! Cappings beeswax is a by-product of the honey harvest. It is also a by-product for the bees as well. Beeswax is a completely natural renewable resource.
  2. ?

    Are your candles scented?
    None of our pure beeswax candles are scented. Beeswax has a natural sweet honey smell and therefore doesn’t need any added fragrance. We offer beeswax jar candles that are scented using therapeutic grade essential oils. We have a large selection of aroma blends to help enhance your mood and spirit.

    Where do you source your beeswax?
    We source all of our quality cappings beeswax directly from experienced beekeepers within Ontario. The beeswax we purchase comes from various floral sources including: clover, alfalfa, wildflower, dandelion, buckwheat, wild blueberry, apple blossom, goldenrod, summer blossom, and basswood. Each flower has a unique nectar, which the bees collect and convert to honey. The taste and the colour of honey vary depending on the nectar and pollen collected. The smell and the colour of beeswax can also vary depending on the source.

    Do you add any colour to your candles?
    We do not add any colour to any of our candles. Though beeswax can naturally range from white, to shades of yellow, to brown, our line currently consists of bright yellow to mid-tone yellow cappings beeswax.
  5. ?

    Do your candles drip?
    Unlike paraffin candles that often drip all over, properly wicked beeswax candles will not drip. All of our candles have been thoroughly tested and do not drip under normal circumstances. Always keep lit candles away from drafts, trim wicks to 1/4 inch and follow specified burn times.

    Why do my beeswax candles get a powdery coating on them?
    Pure beeswax candles will create a bloom over time. The white film is an indicator of purity in a beeswax candle. Beeswax candles that have been blended with other waxes, such as soy or paraffin, will not have bloom. It is caused by temperature changes, most notably, in a colder environment. Bloom on a beeswax candle is often very much prized by beeswax candle enthusiasts as it gives the candle a natural rustic look. For those who wish to remove the bloom, this can easily be done by wiping the candle with a soft, non-abrasive cloth or by using a hair dryer on medium setting for a short period of time.

    I’m having difficulty lighting my beeswax candle or my wick won’t stay lit. Why is that?
    Beeswax is a much more viscous wax and has a higher melting temperature than paraffin and soy. The flashpoint of pure beeswax is approximately 204.4 degrees Celsius (400 degrees Fahrenheit), and therefore takes a little longer to light. We recommend using a lighter to light your beeswax candle. When extinguishing your beeswax candle, it is important to dip your wick into the melted wax pool, then to straighten it back up. This helps prime the wick for the next burn. Our beeswax candles use cotton wick, so it is important to prime the wick for the next burn. Another reason you may be having difficulty lighting your candle, may be because the wick was cut too short. In such a case, light the candle, and pour out some of the melted wax. This will expose more wick for proper burn. For more information, please visit our Candle Care & Burning Guide.
