Bees Wax Candles
100% Handmade, Tasmanian, Organic, Leatherwood Beeswax Candles.
Why not use soy wax?
Soy is not a natural wax. It is a heavy metal hydrogenated oil.
96% of soybeans grown globally are Monsanto genetically- modified soy beans. Pesticides and other chemicals are used in soybean farming.
Many of the fragrances used are artificial, petrochemical- derived oils and therefore can cause toxic fumes when you burn the candles.
Why not use palm wax?
Sadly the increased use of Palm oils/products has caused a rush in plantations which has meant the massive destruction of forests. This in turn has effected so many animals, including the orangutans.
Why not use paraffin wax?
Paraffin has been used for decades and are usually the white candles you can still buy in shops. Paraffin wax is a waste product of petroleum fuel, so when you light one of these candles you are basically igniting petrol in your home… toxic fumes filling your rooms. Not good for your health in any way.
We only use 100% certified organic leatherwood beeswax.
We go one step further for your health, we also offer candles that are made from Tasmanian certified organic leatherwood beeswax, ensuring that the candles are 100% chemical and pesticide free.
