- Produce a warm and wonderful light that is similar to the sun:It is said that burning a beeswax candle in the bedroom for 30 minutes before going to sleep will result in a more restful sleep.
- Sweet Honey scent: Beeswax candles will sweeten the room with the pure scent of honey.
- Although you will find Beeswax candles to be more expensive than your typical paraffin candle you will find they burn longer than paraffin wax.
- Virtually dripless in a draft-free environment.
- Natural golden colour which will vary depending on bee’s source of pollen and nectar.
- Frosted Appearance will develop over time. This natural process is called ‘bloom’ and shows that the candle is pure beeswax. The bloom is easily removed by buffing it with a soft cloth or heating slightly on a low setting with a hair dryer.
To prolong the life of your Beelites 100% Pure Beeswax Candle, keep the wick at 1/4 inch in height, trimming with scissors if necessary.
As the candle melts push the soft walls of the candle inwards, keeping the melted wax from dripping over the edge. If the melt pool gets too close to the edge, extinguish to ensure it doesn’t spill over the side and relight once cooled. Results will look something like the picture below.
To extinguish the flame when burning a pillar candle it is best to simply plunge the wick into the wax and straighten, making sure to re-center the wick so it maintains an even burn once relit. This eliminates smoking and ensures an easy relight.
