I stumbled across Love Bees on I like supporting the smaller sized shops. This was my first time trying the beeswax candles.

Her candles are $6.00USD.

I tried the Clove and Lavender Candles.

You certainly get what you pay for and I wasn’t wiping black soot off the sides of the jars. A big bonus. I assume no soot because the candles are toxin and carcinogen free. The candles are scented with pure cinnamon essential oil, and she does not use glue to secure the wicks.

  • Beeswax naturally burns longer than other types of candle wax (paraffin and soy) and is therefore a very economical choice for your candle-burning needs.
  • Beeswax burns brighter and cleaner than other waxes, and gives off a lovely golden glow and a beautiful honey scent.
  • Beeswax is non-allergenic and is a natural air cleaner – the very best choice for those with allergies or asthma.
  • It is said that beeswax is the only fuel to produce negative ions – the same natural air purifiers produced by waterfalls and rainstorms.
  • Beeswax candles are known to have spiritual and healing qualities, and have been used in religious ceremonies for thousands of years.
