Hand poured 1.3 oz candle made from 100 % beeswax. Beeswax has a naturally light honey scent due to the sweet nectar and pollen collected by the bees from various blooms. Beeswax candles have been used for centuries from every ancient civilization from ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, to the Vikings. Beeswax is known to burn longer and cleaner than other wax. Unlike other chemical laden candles, beeswax candles are nontoxic, hypoallergenic and actually purify the air in your home. Soy candles claim to be less toxic however soy is one of the most heavily sprayed and genetically modified crops, soy farming also directly contributes to the deforestation of the rainforest. This decorative candle isn’t just a statement piece for any indoor space, but is eco-friendly as well.
