Canadian Beeswax Birthday Candles
Hand-crafted candles using only pure, wild Canadian beeswax, filtered through clay and charcoal to ensure quality.
Beeswax is both sustainable and protects biodiversity; a natural, renewable resource, sourced from apiaries throughout British Columbia and Alberta. The colour of the wax changes season to season, depending on what flowers the bees gather pollen and nectar from - to feed the hive. As the bees move from flower to flower they pollinate our planet.

This product is composed of beeswax and a cotton paper core wick.
Beeswax is a remarkable natural substance that science still does not fully understand. It is a by-product of honey, which originates in flowers and is made by the youngest honey bees in the colony. These young bees haven't yet become foragers for the plant nectar that ultimately becomes honey. To produce wax, the bees gorge themselves on honey, linking themselves together by the hundreds, and after several hours, the wax begins to flow from pockets on their abdomens. Each bee then scrapes off the wax with their legs and chews it into soft pellets. She then uses them to fashion exquisitely engineered honey-comb cells, with walls of wax that average only 1/100th of an inch thick. This is one of the most efficient storage structures ever developed by any species, including man.

What started as an idea for a lifestyle change and creative outlet, has become a thriving local small business. Bees Wax Works dwells in the owners’ home on Vancouver Island in beautiful British Columbia. The Candle Room first put roots in the ground on Salt Spring Island and it has since expanded to other pastures on the big island. The wild wet west coast is scattered with unique communities of artists and crafters working together with others to make their spaces beautiful and harmonious. There is a ‘hive to home’ culture there and an ilk to homesteading in modern ways that threads its’ way through the communities ~ Bees Wax Works is a part of that culture.
