What’s the buzz with beeswax candles? Quite a bit, as the natural alternative is a far healthier replacement to paraffin or petroleum based options. Rather than being linked to cancer, beeswax actually cleanses the air, and often helps support beekeepers. That’s right, honeycomb is harvested without any harm to fuzzy honeybees. Nature is just telling us to use this amazing resource. Beeswax has a naturally sweet and floral scent, that is subtle, yet certainly noticeable. These are the best beeswax candles to try.
We started with some of the best—Bluecorn. Since the 1990s, the company has been cultivating incredible, pure beeswax candles that not only are honest and simple, but are beautiful and efficient. We couldn’t pick just one product, as the tea lights, tapers, recycled glass candles, and pillars are downright lovely. Aromatherapy candles that deliver calming and revitalizing scents are also available.
Honeycombs in Texas are put to good use after all the honey has been collected and the bees have left. The Beeswax Co. collaborates with these beekeepers, and recycles the wax into a variation of candle styles. Pillars and votives are some of the staples, but we are loving the super cute shapes. Pinecones, beehives and the grand state of Texas are all specialty candle shapes!
