CANDLES

Many beekeepers make candles and I am no exception. I enjoy the pleasant light that, particularly, beeswax candles produce. The fragrance of a burning beeswax candle is pleasing without being overpowering.

All the candles that I make myself are made from pure beeswax except some of those in the 'Other Candles' & 'Special Candles' groups.
The beeswax is rendered from the combs and cappings of the bees that I keep myself... See the pages on Wax Melting and Wax Filtration for how this is done.

The wick for use in beeswax candles is also discussed on the Wick Design & Use page, and a list of types and sizes of wick is given on the Wick page.
