Description

Big Sur, all-natural beeswax candle. Forest fir, calming lavender, and wild sage. Hand poured into an 8-ounce Mason jar with an all-cotton wick. Made with white beeswax, which is naturally lightened by the sun and air. Inspired by the beauty and grandeur of Big Sur, California, where the trees meet the sea.  Each candle comes with a rustic pewter lid and a little box of matches carefully packaged in a gift box. Handcrafted in small batches in Lake Arrowhead, California.

The beeswax is ethically sourced from a family-owned and bee-friendly farm located here in the US.  The beekeepers there use cruelty-free practices to keep the honeybees happy and healthy.

Why Beeswax?

Beeswax candles differ from all other candles because they are healthy, eco-friendly, and sustainable.  Beeswax is a renewable resource, which makes it biodegradable and nontoxic. Beeswax candles also act as natural air purifiers! When lit, they release negative ions into the air that attach to positive ions like germs, pollen, pet dander, dust, and toxins and neutralize them, thus cleansing the air. This makes them perfect for people who suffer from asthma and allergies. Not only do they have so many healthy benefits, they are also naturally beautiful to look at. A burning beeswax candle emits the same light spectrum as the sun, giving it a brighter and bigger flame than other candles. The natural glow of the beeswax candle with its subtle honey scent creates a warm and inviting mood, perfect for any occasion.  

The Bee-auty of Beeswax

The beauty of beeswax is in its imperfections, so if you're looking for a flawless candle, beeswax may not be for you. Because beeswax is a natural byproduct of bees, all beeswax candles have different characteristics and each one is unique because of the flowers the honeybees have pollinated. They do not burn like soy and paraffin candles and may have imperfections and melt unevenly. You may also notice little bubbles in the melted beeswax or cracks when it is cooled, but this is normal and will not affect the performance of the candle. When you light the candle again, they will likely fill in with the melted wax.

Ingredients

Pure beeswax, coconut oil, lavender essential oil, and cotton.

*coconut oil is added to prevent cracking and to help the beeswax burn more consistently and evenly.  Beeswax is a dense, hard wax that burns very hot.  It cannot be used in a glass container by itself or it would shatter the glass and present a fire hazard.
