“English Beehive” Votive Candle H:5cm/2" W:5cm/2" 8-10 hours



“This is inspired by a type of beehive called a “skep”. Skeps are hand woven using straw and are still used by beekeepers to collect honey bees that have swarmed. It is a cruelty-free and pesticide-free way of both returning or introducing a swarm to the apiary

Until the Victorian Era (1837-1901), skeps were used to keep honey bees. During the Victorian Era, the beehive with easily removable and replaceable honeycomb frames was invented— this revolutionised beekeeping as it allowed beekeepers to remove only the surplus honey and beeswax while leaving the honey bees with ample amounts of honey and beeswax. We only use beeswax that is the by-product of surplus honey collections”

Recommended Candle Accessories

Always use some form of candle holder:

  • It is the most effective way to ensure a flat, heat-resistant surface

  • It is also an easy way to effectively reduce the chance of wax drips; ensuring that the candle burns for as long as possible

How to Use Follow general candle safety advice when the candle is lit. Use the candle accessories that we recommend and only use indoors. Never place lit Honey Bee Candles in hurricane lamps or votive glass vessels. Measurements and burn time are approximate
