The Carolina Honey Bee Company's 100 % Beeswax candles are the most durable & the longest lasting candles you can own! They burn brighter, longer, & cleaner than any other type of candle.
Here's what makes beeswax candles so special.
100 % Beeswax is a natural substance secreted by worker (female) honey bees from glands on the underside of their abdomens. This secreted beeswax is known as wax scale. In its most pure natural form beeswax is actually white, or translucent, depending on the thickness of the beeswax scales.
The beeswax most people are familiar with is a light golden yellow color. This beautiful color is achieved from the pollen and propolis that naturally stain the beeswax. This is the type we make our candles with, If excessive amounts of pollen oils and propolis are present in the beeswax it can even become a dark brown.
Our Beeswax is produced in our colonies here in the Upstate of South Carolina
