100% Pure Beeswax is Truly Eco-friendly

100% pure beeswax has incredible properties that makes it the ideal material for many eco-friendly home products. Beeswax is an integral part of the beehive that not only provides structure to the beehive but is a vital part of nature's original food storage. Beeswax burns at the highest temperature compared to other waxes (such as paraffin, soy or vegetable wax like rapeseed) so they make effective candles and fire starters without any nasty chemicals

  1. Beeswax is a naturally occurring by-product of food pollination (and when beekeepers collect the surplus honey)

    • Beeswax is naturally a wax. The wax in paraffin, soy and palm candles have been through a chemical reaction in order to be turned into wax as they are originally oils

  2. Our beeswax is sustainable and renewable

    • We only support ethical beekeeping and its values so our beeswax is cruelty-free and from a sustainable source. The beeswax that we use is straight from the beehive- no other type of wax (e.g. soy or paraffin), nasty chemicals or preservatives are added- we only use 100% pure beeswax. We filter this beeswax completely by hand, without any machines or bleaches— it is totally natural

  3. Beeswax is the most eco-friendly wax for the environment, for animals and for you and family

    • Beeswax is made by honey bees and has the least impact on the local eco system (takes the least amount of land-space) unlike soy and palm tree plantations that cause devastating and irreversible effects to the local environment and animals; paraffin wax is chemically made from crude oil (a fossil fuel) which is non-renewable and not sustainable.

    • When oils are turned into wax they require chemicals to solidify them; often these are very bad for the environment and especially awful when burnt as a candle as they emit the same toxic compounds as cigarettes! This includes benzene and formaldehyde which is particularly harmful when burnt in confined spaces such the living room and the bathroom. To clarify: Honey Bee Candles are 100% pure beeswax and non-toxic natural ionisers

    • Oils that are turned into wax are often accompanied with candle wicks that contain zinc cores and lead cores- adding to the toxins that are released when burnt. Some people add paper-cores but this is not much better. It is possible to make a candle with a metal-free and paper-free wick but some people use these either to maximise profit or to compensate for a low level of candle making skill. To clarify: Honey Bee Candles only use 100% pure cotton candle wicks

  4. Natural beeswax is biodegradable

    • Biodegradable products are vital to a circular economy (zero-waste lifestyle)
