Beeswax Votive Candles for Beeswax Lovers

Sale price$16


100% pure beeswax is the hardest of all wax used for candles and because of that hardness, they burn longer than paraffin, soy or palm wax candles. This harder beeswax takes longer to melt and makes beeswax votives candles a beautiful container candle to light if you have hours to spend enjoying them.

Pure beeswax votives are meant to be burned in a snug-fitting votive holder to help gather all the melted wax inside the walls of the glass holder and create a melt pool. If you put a votive on a candle plate, it will melt down the sides of the candle and end up as a puddle of wax on that plate. The same thing will happen if you put the votive in a very large holder. A glass votive holder that holds the candle close to its side is the best holder for the longest burn. 

Depending on the diameter (width) of your votive holder, it may take hours for the beeswax to create a melt pool, but it will create one at some point during the burn. All glass votive holders vary slightly in diameter, (depending on the brand) and that variation will determine how quickly your votive candle will create a melt pool. 

For the longest, safest and cleanest votive burn, we deliberately use a wick that keeps your votives from getting too hot and prevents it from producing smoke and soot. A slower, gentle burn will release the pure, natural honey fragrance added by the bees. 


Safe for People & Pets

According to the National Institute of Health and the National Library of Medicine, 34.7% of people will suffer headaches, migraines and upper respiratory issues when exposed to strong fragrance in artificially scented products. That means 1 in 3 people will feel negative affects while being exposed to candles with added perfume.

100% Pure Beeswax!

The 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

Yet Smells So Good!

The 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.
