Humans have been using beeswax since the beginning of civilization and it has been found in pharoah's tombs, Viking shipwrecks and Roman ruins. When honey bees make their wax, it's actually an off-white color. The beautiful golden hue and scent in our wax comes from the honey, nectar and pollen which gets mixed during the harvest processing.
Our Vintage Beeswax bottles are made to order and arrive to you with that same 100% natural, rich color. Over time, your candles will "bloom". A bloom is a light white frosting that will appear on the candle as it ages. This sometimes happens when pure beeswax is subjected to multiple temperature changes. If you prefer your candles with a polished and shiny finish, simply wipe the bloom off with a soft cloth and it will look freshly poured again. You can also take a hair dryer and blow warm air on the candle and the bloom will disappear. Remember, if a beeswax candle "blooms", this is actually a good thing, since ones that don't are not 100% pure beeswax.
Our beeswax candles can be stored for years with the proper care. Avoid placing your candle in direct sun light for an extended period of time since this will bleach the candle to a very light yellow color, almost white, unless you desire this color. There's no need to worry about our beeswax candles melting in hot weather, since beeswax will not melt until temperatures get above 145 degrees.
We hope that you love displaying our Vintage Beeswax Bottle candles as much as we love making them for you!
