Pillars: Many beeswax pillar candles have difficulty burning because the particulate in beeswax clogs the wick, resulting in a weak flame and tunneling. These 100% pure beeswax pillars will burn perfectly because we lightly filter our crude beeswax and carefully choose the right wick. Light filtration takes out just the right amount of particulate while keeping the sweet honey scent and gorgeous natural color intact.
- Trim wick to 1/4" before each lighting.
- To avoid tunneling, burn for at least 3 hours per burn and mold the warm sides in toward the flame. This will melt the walls, utilizing all of the available fuel, and thus extend the overall burn time. It will also raise the molten wax level, and shrink any over-sized flame.
- To prevent uneven burning and potential dripping, use a metal tool to redirect a curled or angled wick to the opposite direction. To prevent wick breakage when doing this, be sure to nudge the wick below the level of the molten pool where the wick is not burned and thus stronger.
- To eliminate smoke when extinguishing the flame, use a tool to drip wax from the molten pool onto the burning wick.
Tapers: These tapers are classic candles dipped into pure molten beeswax at just the right temperature by a steady hand and a keen eye. They are dipped and cooled over twenty times each before a pair can be cut free from the oak rack. When finished and hung, they carry the rich scent of honey and seem to hold light in their bellies. Kept out of drafts and away from fans these tapers will burn virtually dripless for about one hour per inch of length.
Travel Tins: Average Burn Time: 12 hours. Trim the wick to ¼” before every lighting. To maximize burn time, allow the candle to burn until the molten pool has reached the tin wall. You can continue to burn the candle at this point. Raw beeswax is simple and sweet - and with these travel candles you can take that sweetness to go. It's amazing how a single beeswax candle can turn an otherwise dull hotel room into home. They are also great for camping or for emergency use. Did you know that a single candle will keep you from freezing while marooned in your car on a snowy highway. We know it sounds dramatic, but how psyched would you be if you actually had one in the glove compartment when you needed it? Aluminum tin is recyclable.
Votives: 100% pure beeswax votives, like other traditional votives, are made to become molten and fill their container. To achieve the best results, burn inside a holder which fits the candle snugly. Using the proper holder, you can expect these votives to burn for at least 15 hours, making them a great bang for your buck.
