Description

100% Beeswax tapers!

Old fashioned and beautiful! Our tapers are hand dipped the old fashioned way. We begin with USA made 100% natural cotton wicks and dip them over and over until they reach perfection (Around 30 dips!). These are undyed and unscented. The yellow beeswax is filtered only for impurities and retains its beautiful color and the full smokey honey aroma of natural beeswax.

We all have legitimate concerns over the toxins that are so prevalent in our lives today. And candle burning shouldn’t be one of them! Most candles on the market today are paraffin wax, which is a petroleum wax! Thankfully there are more natural options popping up. And truth be told, we are actually going back to some of the older, healthier ways. Candles used to be made of tallow or other fats, and beeswax were the luxury ones because they burned so good. As late as the 1900s people burned peanut oil “candles” by putting wicking into pools of peanut oil! (Don’t try this please!)
