What tealights are made of?
We use only raw and natural beeswax to make our long burning tealights. Each beeswax tealight is handmade and provide strong flame. All our candles are made in our apiary in Hertfordshire, UK.
What’s burning time of tea lights?
Beeswax has very high melting point. For that reason our tealights are long burning with burn time approx 3hrs (if wick is trimmed to approx 4mmm).
What’s the advantage of using beeswax tealights?
There are lots of scientific articles and practitioners all saying the same thing – only beeswax is the natural and healthy option among all types of waxes. Pure and natural beeswax burns cleanly, producing less soot and lasting longer. Beeswax candles emit negative ions cleaning and improving quality of air. Lots of people saying that after they switch to beeswax candles their allergy symptoms relieved or disappeared. Beeswax candles are believed to be good antidepressant as they produce a light very similar to the one sun emits – bright and yellow. And for those of us who are environment conscious and friendly, there is an argument of sustainability of beeswax. Produced by bees in the process of nectar collection, beeswax does not require human intervention (like deforestation for soy plants) neither is made in laboratories. We extract only what bees made and in quantities bees allow us to extract.
Do I need to trim a wick?
Our tealights are raw beeswax tealights. It means we don’t change its structure, don’t add any chemicals nor bleach it. You get all the benefits of nature found only in raw beeswax. Therefore we advise to always keep the size of wick at max 4-5mm. This way performance of a tea light is optimal and chances of creating a soot minimal. Also trim a wick whenever you think the flame is too strong. When you trim the wick please be very careful as liquid beeswax has a temperature above 65C. Put the flame down, cut the wick and remove all wick residue not allowing it to get to the beeswax pool and re-lit the candle again.
