Honey bees between 12 and 20 days old, develop wax-producing glands. These glands convert sugar from the honey into a waxy substance that they secrete in what looks like scales on the bee’s bottom side.
Honeybees can fly up to six miles at
15 miles per hour. A hive of bees will fly 40,000 miles, more than once around the earth to collect 1 pound of honey. It takes 6 pounds of honey to make 1 pound of wax.
Ever so slowly we melt the wax.
The aroma is out of this world.
It is said, "Bees transform the light from the sun into wax, and when a 100% beeswax candle burns, the flame releases the light."
We use silicon molds like the yellow one shown. It takes, on average, 3 hours for the candles to fully set up (harden) in the mold before we can remove them.
These are the result of a long day's work, two of us, for 19 hours, to be exact. These candles are still cooling - the darker the candle, the cooler the wax. The next day... we start again.
While burning a 100% beeswax candle, its golden flame glows with the same energy and spectrum of light as the sun. Soy and Paraffin candles DO NOT do this.
100% Beeswax candles are the opposite, in every way, of Soy and Paraffin candles and Warmers, i.e.: Scentsy.
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU HAVE A TRUE 100% BEESWAX CANDLE?
Even the purest of essential oil, natural oils, and of course, man-made aromas will become toxic once heat hits them. And, yes, this does includes Young Living and doTERRA essential oils right on through to Scentsy and Glade products.
We have spoken with both Young Living and doTERRA's company scientists and they stated their essential oils will turn toxic once heat hits them. Mind you, if you diffuse oils to always use a cold steam diffuser.
