Learn More About Our Soy/Beeswax Candles

What exactly are beeswax candles?

Let's start with the basics. Beeswax candles are candles made from—you guessed it—beeswax! Beeswax is a natural substance produced by honeybees. They secrete it from glands on their abdomens to build honeycomb cells in their hives.

At Arluka, we hand craft our candles with a blend of beeswax and soy wax for a candle that offers the benefits of both wax types.

Are beeswax candles better than other types of candles?

Many people prefer soy/beeswax candles over other types for several reasons:

  1. Natural and Non-Toxic: Both Beeswax and Soy wax are natural substances, free from the harmful chemicals found in some other candle materials.
  2. Clean Burning: Soy/Beeswax candles burn cleanly, without producing the black soot often seen with paraffin candles.
  3. Longer Burn Time: Soy/Beeswax candles typically burn longer than other types of candles, providing hours of cozy ambiance.

Are beeswax candles eco-friendly?

Yes! Beeswax candles are considered environmentally friendly for several reasons:

  1. Renewable Resource: Beeswax is a renewable resource, produced by bees as part of their natural lifecycle.
  2. Biodegradable: Unlike some synthetic candle materials, beeswax is biodegradable, meaning it breaks down naturally over time, reducing environmental impact.
  3. Minimal Processing: The production of beeswax candles requires minimal processing, further reducing their environmental footprint.

Can beeswax candles help with allergies or asthma?

Some people find that beeswax candles are a better option for those with allergies or asthma. This is because beeswax candles do not emit the same toxins and soot as paraffin candles, which can exacerbate respiratory issues in sensitive individuals.

Are bees harmed in the production of beeswax candles?

Our beeswax is harvested responsibly, in a manner that does not harm the bees. Beekeepers carefully collect excess beeswax from hives without disturbing the bees or compromising their ability to produce honey and maintain their colony.

How should I care for my beeswax candles?

To get the most out of your beeswax candles, follow these tips:

  1. Trim the Wick: Before each use, trim the wick to about ¼ inch to prevent excessive smoking and ensure a clean, even burn.
  2. Avoid Drafts: Place your candles away from drafts to prevent uneven burning and dripping.
  3. Burn Safely: Always place candles on heat-resistant surfaces and never leave them unattended while lit.
  4. Store Properly: Store beeswax candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent melting or warping.
