"Francesca" Votive Candle H:5cm/2" W:4.5cm/1¾" 15-17 hours



Francesca: a sleek votive candle wrapped with an infinity knot. Francesca will burn beautifully for 15-17 hours and is very likely to be drip-free when using the Honey Bee Candle Stand


An infinity knot votive candle that is hand poured in England, in small batches; using only 100% pure beeswax and a completely natural cotton candle wick

Optimal burn time: 15-17 hours approx. The less wax drips, the longer the burn time

Each candle is 5cm/2" tall and 4.5cm/1¾" wide (approx.)

Great for coffee tables, small dinner tables and bedside tables. Also good for bathrooms

100% pure beeswax candles burn longer, cleaner and brighter than other 100% pure natural wax candles (like soy, palm or vegetable wax) and they are a finishing touch to an elegant table setting

This is an ideal slow-burning candle that provides a soft sunshine glow that warms up a room. When it is lit, it will emit a lovely subtle honey aroma and provide an air purifying effect in the room- reducing the level of air pollutants and irritants such as dust. Read more below (Natural Ionisers)

Our candles are great for the dining table as their subtle honey aroma will not clash with your food- unlike paraffin or soy candles as most of these have heavy chemical fragrances/scents as well as artificial colours and dyes.

Our candles are naturally coloured by pollen granules that the honey bees brush onto the beeswax in the hive and given their lovely aroma by the nectar from the flowers that the honey bees have foraged on

No added artificial colours/dyes & no added artificial fragrance/scents

All Honey Bee Candles are handmade, 100% pure beeswax and truly eco-friendly

Honey Bee Candles products are handmade by the 2 of us (Priscilla & Pravana) in small batches. Each item is given our full attention so you should consistently experience high quality products. We are proud that we make eco-friendly and zero-waste candles (they are completely natural and biodegradable)

We are a mother-and-daughter team and we hand make all of our Honey Bee Candles in England using high grade beeswax and cotton wicks. We will send them to you using plastic-free and zero-waste recycled packaging; this means that everything is biodegradable (or you can recycle it) so nothing needs to go to landfill

We strongly advise that the Francesca votive candle is lit using a candle stand- we recommend trying our unique candle stand (Honey Bee Candle Stand) it is great for families with small children and pets as we designed it to provide increased stability compared to the majority of other candle holders while providing ventilation to protect your table surface. It can accommodate any candle: from a candlestick to a 8.5cm/3.5" wide pillar candle

Priscilla and Pravana

100% pure natural beeswax is the only type of natural wax that can be used for hand poured candles in its pure state. It is a really fascinating material as it is firm enough to allow us to create beautiful and elegant designs such as Francesca but soft enough to be flexible so that it does not splinter and chip when placed onto a spiked candle stand. 100% pure beeswax candles do not expire, go rancid; they do not “go off”. If stored in a cold room or near a window, a 100% pure beeswax candle will develop “bloom”. This is a white film that starts off as a thin layer and thickens with time- it looks like the first snow of winter. Many people love seeing “bloom” as it is proof that the candle is 100% pure beeswax. Mixtures of beeswax and other waxes are not able to form “bloom”. “Bloom” should not affect how the candle burns, how long it burns for and its natural subtle honey aroma. If you don’t like this, simply light your candle and the “bloom” will disappear as the candle warms up from the heat of its flame

Natural ionisers

Honey Bee Candles are 100% pure beeswax candles. Only 100% pure beeswax candles purify the air as they emit negative ions. Dust, pollen and pollution are airborne due to their postive ions so the negative ions of a burning beeswax candle neutralise them- leaving a lovely subtle honey aroma and a gently warmed room

In cities or dusty areas, you will be able to see the molten wax pool at the top of the candle start to darken: this is because when the airborne postive ions become neutalised, they become a complete molecule which is heavier than air so it becomes a solid

When a Honey Bee Candle has been burning long enough, you will be able to experience the difference: it’s sort of like a ray of sunshine, fresh ocean breeze or freshly cut green grass

If you start to burn Honey Bee Candles every day, the air in your home will be cleaner, sweeter and ultimately healthier than if you didn’t purify the air. For best results, ideally also vacuum carpets or wipe hard floors daily but a few times a week also works well. The more that you burn Honey Bee Candles, the greater the effect but you should start to notice a difference from the first burn. To start, try burning a Honey Bee Candle for three hours every day for a week. If you are new to beeswax candles, we recommend Benjamin, Lexi or the Bee Column along with a spiked candle stand to start your experience; it is important to have a candle stand.

  • The beautiful, bright glow of a lit beeswax candle is on the same light spectrum as sunlight

  • We only use beeswax that is the by-product of surplus honey; the honey bees always have enough honey

  • For every 1 lb (450g) of beeswax, honey bees have to collect nectar from nearly 33 million flowers

  • 75,000 honey bees work together to make 1 lb (450g) of beeswax

  • A honey bee makes 8 scales of beeswax in 12 hours. About 1000 wax scales are needed to make ¹̷ ₅₀₀ lb (1g) of beeswax
