One of the most heavenly things a beekeeper experiences when she opens her hive is the smell of fresh beeswax. Local beekeeper friend Kate and her family have kept the apiary buzzing at their family's organic farm for four generations and we're pretty much obsessed with their sustainably produced beeswax products. Burning longer, cleaner, and more evenly than paraffin candles, with a soft light coming from the round, white flame, and giving off the intoxicating golden-sweet smell of honey, these additive-free short and sturdy tapers have a bit of a cult following at The Foundry.
These are our go-to candles for the smaller candlesticks we carry, and they're also the perfect size and shape for those Scandinavian-style vintage candleholders that spring up like warm beacons during the darker months. With their short stature and traditional construction, these are also the right size and vibe for those beautifully old-fashioned Christmas tree candle clips (swoon). God Jul!
Handmade from 100% pure beeswax with a cotton wick.
3 3/4" long and 1/2" wide.
We love these candles and after years of burning them, we have a few tips and tricks for peak-loveliness AND how to deal with the beeswax if it does happen to drip over on the blog.
