Gentle Breeze Honey® beeswax candles are a completely natural product. We use only 100% beeswax in all of our candles.
Beeswax candles burn cleaner than regular candles. While the smoke that a regular paraffin candle emits into your home is the same as car exhaust, beeswax candles burn virtually smokeless and dripless (so long as there is not a draft) with a steady golden flame.
Our tapers burn longer: on average, one hour per inch.
The delightful honey aroma from our candles is natural. No scent is added.
Being a natural substance, the color of our candles may vary from a bright lemon yellow to a light olive.
Beeswax is produced by the female worker bees. Secreted from glands on the underside of the bee’s abdomen, the wax is molded into six-sided cells that they fill with honey, then cap with more wax. (To remove honey and other impurities, the wax is melted and filtered.)
It’s estimated that bees must fly 150,000 miles to create eight pounds of honey that will produce one pound of wax. That’s why beeswax is the most expensive of waxes.
After a time, beeswax candles develop a fine, white, powdery coating called “bloom.” This is not a sign of deterioration. A quick buff with a cloth restores the candle to a bright luster.
Beeswax candles should be stored either hanging or lying flat (if a pair of tapers) or standing (if a molded candle) at room temperature. Though beeswax does not melt until 143 degrees, it can start to soften about 90 degrees.
If you are not using your candles right away, storing them in the freezer can enhance their burning properties.
