Beeswax candles are an ancient tradition, offering an alternative to the toxic and polluting paraffin candles. Beeswax candles emit negative ions, which cleans the air of toxins, dust, mold, and pollen. The soothing aromatherpy effect of the candles calms the soul and helps set the mood for meditation. Some people burn a candle in the bedroom for an hour or two before sleeping.
We offer a votive made from bees which are raised in our own Southern Appalacian community, raised on wildflowers and sourwood. Only the pure cappings from the top of the hive are used.
Votives are small candles designed to burn inside a votive glass. Votives are long burning and need minimal servicing, because they have self-trimming wicks. If burned for one to three hours per use, they will burn for over 15 hours.
The votive glass, available separately, is made from re-used bottles. The bottles are cut in half and the edges polished. We thought this would be a fitting addition to such a wonderful candle. You can use your own votive glass if you have one.
