Why Beeswax Candles?

Candles add tremendous appeal to our living environments.  Unfortunately, not all candles are equally good for those environments because of the variety of wax sources and additives that are used with some wax blends.


  • They are clean burning -- no soot is added to the air you breathe. 
  • Studies have shown burning beeswax candles produces negative ions which cleanse the air.
  • Beeswax is a renewable resource.

Beeswax candles are more ECONOMICAL.  The glow of the flame is a warm flame.  It efficiently burns the wax causing a slow burn.  The efficient burn also minimizes dripping. 

Pure beeswax candles are NATURALLY scented with a sweet, honey-like smell.  For individuals who are very sensitive to smells, candles made with highly filtered beeswax have little aroma (the white and pastel candles on this site).

All beeswax candles sold on this site which are natural in color or which are primary (non-pastel) colors are made from beeswax harvested in the Catskill Mountains of New York.
