These candles are made of 100% beeswax obtained both from a local company and from a woman almost in our own neighborhood who has bees (and consequentially, an abundance of beeswax!) The wick is simple cotton wicking. The candles average about 7″ long and 3/4″ of an inch wide at the base. No two pairs are exactly the same! They come as a pair still attached together on their wick, and will need to be cut apart and the wicks trimmed before burning. No fragrances or colorants are added to our candles–only the honey fragrance that naturally belongs to pure beeswax.
(Side note: As candlesticks differ in size, if a candle is too wide at the base, it can often be warmed and then molded into the candlestick; or if it is too skinny, a few drops of melted wax in the bottom of the candlestick should hold the candle in securely.)
