Beeswax candles burn rounded yellow flames in the same light spectrum as the sun, but they are more than just a homey glow. A beeswax candle burns up to three times longer than the commonly used paraffin candles. Besides being more efficient, beeswax candles are free of the toxicity of paraffin, a byproduct of petroleum, that releases some of the same carcinogenic fumes as automobile exhaust.
 
In Oregon, a single bee colony produces an average of 2 pounds of wax per year. The company that makes these candles began as a bee farm, but the candle-making operation outstripped their bees' production of wax long ago. Collecting from bee farms primarily in the Pacific Northwest and always in the U.S., the candles from this company come from the hard work of nearly 5000 hives.
 
Tealights come in sets of six along with their own aluminum dishes, and burn for 4.5 to 5 hours each. A family-run operation based out of Cottage Grove, Oregon, the company makes all their candles on-site. The candles have a natural, honey-scented smell and a tactile, hand-made feel. The wicks are made with 100% cotton

The tealights are packaged without plastic.

Use & Care

Each tealight must be burned in its accompanying dish because pools of wax form around the candle's base as it melts. Ideally, tealights should be lit in areas free of drafts and wicks should be trimmed to ¼ inch before each use. If the wick begins to lean or curl while burning, re-center it using a bobby pin or another fire-proof tool to keep the wax from melting unevenly.

Never leave a burning candle unattended.

Production & Design

The process used to make these candles is far from automated. A skilled staff of three individuals hand craft and pour each tealight, as well as 141 other candle types. Tealights are ¾ inch x 1 ½ inches and weigh 6 ounces. They have a natural wax color and 100% cotton wicks, and contain no substance other than beeswax. Unlike petroleum-based paraffin, one of the most widely-used candle-making materials, the fumes and smells of beeswax candles are perfectly healthy, not to mention soothing.
