Shoresh is thrilled to bring our community these healthy, natural, handmade, 100% pure Canadian beeswax candles to add warmth and light to your home. They are lovingly made by the sisters of Holy Theotokos Convent in Uxbridge, Ontario.
These pillar candles are clean, green, allergen-free 100% pure Canadian beeswax candles with organic cotton wicks!
This pillar candle is 3” wide and 5 1/2” tall, with a burn time of about 50+ hours.
The purest and most natural of all waxes, beeswax burns cleanly, giving off a beautiful warm glow. Unlike petroleum-based paraffin candles that produce toxins, soot and black smoke when burned, beeswax emits negative ions, pulling pollutants such as dust, odours, toxins, and mould out of the air. Burning beeswax candles actually improves air quality and therefore improves your health, sleep, and overall well-being.
And by purchasing our candles, you are helping to protect our pollinators! 100% of proceeds go directly to growing and maintaining Shoresh's 4-acre Bee Sanctuary at Bela Farm.
CARING FOR YOUR BEESWAX CANDLE:
Allow the wax pool to reach the edge of the candle before you blow it out (it should take approximately 2.5 hours). This will prevent tunnelling.
Trim your wick to ~1/4″ before each burn to keep it burning beautifully.
To prevent smoking when you blow out your candle, dip the lit wick into the wax with a skewer or toothpick. Once the flame is out, straighten the wick so it’s ready for trimming and lighting next time.
