Rooftop Honey Beeswax Tea Light Candle Set of 5.
Made from beeswax from Rooftop Honey's local Melbourne Bees.
By using beeswax candle wax you are supporting Bees and helping the environment.
Beeswax candles can help reduce allergies, asthma, and hay fever by releasing negative ions into the air.
Considering that even a 100% soy wax candle is processed with a small amount of paraffin, potentially, burning a 100% soy candle will release small amounts of the carcinogens and toxins found in paraffin.
More than 90% of soy is genetically modified! GM soy crops are heavily sprayed with toxic pesticides, causing harm to both the harvesters and the soil. So if you are buying soy candles, chances are you are supporting the production of GMO’s–which devastate our environment and our health.
The wax is formed by worker bees, which secrete it from eight wax-producing mirror glands on the inner sides of their abdominal segments. Honey bees use the beeswax to build honeycomb cells in which their young are raised with honey and pollen cells being capped for storage. To produce their wax, bees must consume 4kg of honey to make 450g of beeswax. It's pretty special!
When we extract honey, we cut off the wax caps from each honeycomb cell with an uncapping knife. Its colour varies from nearly white to brownish, but most often a shade of yellow. We melt it, filter it through simple cloth and pour.
