100% Pure Beeswax Votive lantern candles

A truly beautiful lantern candle made using the highest quality London Beeswax from the 'Local Honey-Man’ in Walthamstow – beeswax sourced from small-scale London beekeepers supporting urban bee pollination. Create a cosy atmosphere in your home and enjoy the uplifting, natural sweet honey aroma that is released into the air with each burn of this pure beeswax candle. This is the perfect night light for your kitchen, lounge or garden. These pretty lantern candles would also be perfect for a rustic wedding where they could be placed on your guest tables, along a fireplace or placed on outside tables in the garden. They will omit the most beautiful warm glow and natural honey scent making the moment feel even more special.  ***Be sure to burn your lantern candle on a level and heat resistant surface.

Gifting idea! I often pair these adorable lanterns with a bottle of sparkles to create a special occasion gift with a personalised touch for friends. These candles simply contain beeswax and a wick… about as pure as it comes.

‘The London Beeswax Candle Company’

You may be wondering why I choose to work with Beeswax which is technically very difficult to work with. Well, quite simply, the results are stunning to burn and there is something quite paranormal and magical about its light. The yellow wax glows and offers out a light that is really atmospheric and luminous. This is because Beeswax has a higher melting point than other waxes and therefore it emits the brightest, most warm-to-red flame. This also means the candles have a much longer burning time than paraffin candles. Finally the health and environmental parameters (described in more detail below) were absolutely key and made it a very easy decision for me.
“My Beeswax candles are truly special and are sure to bring a beautiful touch of elegance, warmth, relaxation to your home in the most environmentally conscious way possible.”

Why Pure Beeswax for Candles?

Beeswax has been around for centuries and is the oldest known wax material used for candles and is considered the cleanest burning candle wax. Beeswax is natural, free of toxins and can create tall candles that provide a slow burn. As you may have guessed from the name, beeswax is produced by bees and more specifically honeybees (females!). The worker bees secrete wax from glands on their abdomen and derive it from honey combined with fat. The bees use this wax to build their defences and storage space in a hive (comb). Wax is a superb building material for the bees being malleable and strong but it is very expensive to produce! Every year as beekeepers extract honey, they can then refine the wax which can be used to make beautiful artisan candles.
100% pure beeswax candles with 100% pure cotton or wood wicks are a great choice when it comes to candles. I have detailed why this is the case below.

Five Reasons To Burn Pure Beeswax

1/ Natural Wax: The London Beeswax Candle Company products are all made from 100% pure beeswax of the highest quality sourced from the 'Local Honey-Man' in Walthamstow. Beeswax is a natural renewable resource which is chemical free, does not emit a strong scent or a synthetic fragrance and does not release excessive toxins into the air. Conversely, paraffin candles are made from petroleum and although cheap to produce they have some very negative effects on the air quality in the home environment which potentially impacts the health of those exposed to this candle.
2/ Naturally Scented: Beeswax Candles also have a gorgeous natural subtle honey scent whereas standard scented candles omit both Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC’s) and fine particulate matter in higher proportions which can increase the risk of asthma and other health problems. When combined with a chlorine free and lead free 100% pure cotton wick, Beeswax gives the cleanest most natural burn and smell possible.
3/ Warm Glow: There is something special with the way a Beeswax Candle lightens up a room. You will instantly notice a difference even from the beautiful, warm glow of my tealights. This is because beeswax emits a bright yet relaxing light within the same spectrum as the sun. This helps create the perfect ambience for dining or for any night to make the moment feel significantly more special and relaxed.
4/ Melting Point: A Beeswax Candle is a cleaner burning wax that has a much higher melting temperature than paraffin candles, produces less soot into the air and will overall last longer on burn time. Although pure soy wax candles are a very good alternative to paraffin candles from both a health and environmental perspective, they have a very low melting point. This makes pure soy wax well suited to container candles but results in dripping issues for taper and pillar candles. The higher melting temperature of Beeswax makes this wax perfect for taper, pillar and container candles whilst also offering a longer burning time.
5/ Sustainability and Environmental benefits: Beeswax is the least processed natural candle wax that is also 100% biodegradable. Nothing more needs to be said about the environmental benefits of burning a natural by-product of the honey industry vs paraffin candles which are produced from petroleum! In short, 100% Beeswax Candles are eco-friendly, with no chemical process involved and are completely biodegradable.

The London Beeswax Candle Company Commitments:

100% Pure Beeswax Commitment: The London Beeswax Candle company only produces 100% Beeswax Candles. Paraffin candles are made from petroleum, soy wax candles are sometime impure and many Beeswax Candles are often mixed with either soy or paraffin wax. Beeswax is circa six times the cost of paraffin wax so many manufactures blend the Beeswax with cheaper waxes – I only produces 100% Beeswax Candles. 100% beeswax candles are eco-friendly, with no chemical process involved and are completely biodegradable.
100% Pure Cotton Wicks Commitment: The London Beeswax Candle Company only uses 100% pure cotton wicks which are both chlorine free and lead free. Lead was routinely used for candle wicks for decades to increase upright stability. After the health risks of lead were identified the candle industry moved away from lead use in wicks but unfortunately (or unbelievably) some candle brands still use lead and other low-grade materials!
100% Pure Wood Wicks Commitment: The London Beeswax Company only uses 100% pure wood wicks. All pure wood wicks are sourced from Forest Stewardship Council certified mills.
100% Hand Poured and Hand-Crafted Commitment: Every single candle produced is poured by me and every piece of packaging and branding material is crafted by me!
100% Environmental Focus at Every Stage of Production and Sales Commitment: The London Beeswax Company focuses on environmental impact at every stage. With sustainability and eco-consciousness at the heart of what I do, I didn’t want to create just any candle. From the 100% pure beeswax I use to make the candles to the pure cotton wicks to the 100% recyclable packaging to choosing 2nd class postage – all decisions have been considered and chosen on being the most environmentally friendly:
• Packaging is sourced from local suppliers and is from both recycled and recyclable material.
• My marketing and branding focus on the use of hand stamps and embossing to reduce the use of colour ink printing (which degrades the recyclability of packaging).
• We use slower and more energy efficient 2nd class postage with Royal Mail (no individual courier pickups and drop offs – I walk to the post box or post office at the end of the road!).
• Pure Beeswax reduces petroleum use from paraffin candles thus reducing carbon emissions
• Beeswax is sourced locally from the ‘Local Honey Man’ in Walthamstow to reduce air and road miles (only 3 miles from my house!).
• Pure cotton wicks reduce the potential of lead burning in the atmosphere.
