Beeswax Pillar 2.5"x4"

Enjoy our hand-poured, Big Moon Beeswax pillars, without a lot of wax maintenance, also known as “hugging.”

We made our "everyday pillar" a simple design so you won't be tempted to say, "it's too pretty to burn!" Enjoy the simplicity of this pillar and see the bee light up when the candle burns to that point! 

At 2-1/2” in diameter, our Every Day Pillar is bigger than a column candle, but not as wide as the standard 3" inch pillar. Though all pillars need to have their wicks trimmed after several hours of burn time, our Every Day Pillar requires less frequent candle hugging (unless you want to show it some love.)

That means 1 in 3 people will feel negative affects while being exposed to candles with added perfume.

100% Pure Beeswax!

Natural BeeswaxThe candles designed and produced by Big Moon Beeswax, are made from 100% Pure Beeswax, hand selected from apiaries located within the Pacific Northwest.  Since beeswax is made naturally by bees, the wax color and fragrance will vary depending on where in North America the honeybees forage. We select all our beeswax according to fragrance, color and geographical foraging regions. Our most frequently used beeswax colors range from a soft yellow to a rich golden hue. 

Naturally Fragrance-Free and Still Smells So Good!

Bee PollinatingThe Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers a product to be fragrance-free when there are “no fragrance materials or masking scents used in a product.” 100% pure beeswax has zero added fragrance materials, but still smells beautiful naturally. It is the only candle wax that smells lovely in its natural state without any added fragrances or masking agents. Related blog post here.

Exclusively Designed

Like all Big Moon Beeswax candles, our Moon Drop Tealights are not made from mass-produced candle molds that are available at candle supply stores everywhere. Our in-house artisans design each type of candle exclusively for Big Moon Beeswax customers.

Gift Ready

We appreciate our customers so much that we love to package our pillars as if they were a gift from us to you. We carefully wrap each pillar in our Bee themed tissue, so they are fun to receive and easy to send as gifts.

Locally and USA Sourced

We will never buy our beeswax from China or from beeswax re-sellers that process the wax from unknown origins before converting into pellets. We buy our beeswax directly from an apiary in the Pacific Northwest and one on the East Coast. We pay more for this premium wax, but it’s important to know that the wax we use and breathe in as candles are safe and pure. Our wicks are made right here in the USA out of cotton.
