Sustainable Dinner Candle


Dinner candle made of raw and pure beeswax – the only natural and sustainable type of wax. Standard height is approx 20cm and width at the base is approx 2cm.

Candles are hand made using ancient technique of hand-dipping. That way you get a very unique candle which will slightly vary in shape. This is due to beeswax settling in different way on each candle.

Our beeswax dinner candles are dripless.

Price is per 1 candle. 1 pair (uncut wick) equals 2 candles.

How beeswax dinner candles are made?

All our candles are handmade in our apiary in Hertfordshire, UK. This particular sustainable dinner candle is made by using old technique of hand dipping. This is very time consuming process where wick is hand dipped in pool of beeswax. It takes anything up to 50 dips in order to have table candle ready. That way we make not only unique but also beeswax dripless candle.

What are advantages of hand-dipped candles?

Each candle is unique as beeswax settles at different pace and rate, each time we hand dip. Therefore, all candles will be similar in shape and size but each candle will be different in the same time. Hand dipped candles will burn smoothly and they are dripless (assuming kept in upright position). Hand dipped table candles will burn evenly and produce very bright light. Candles are eco friendly as well. We use only raw beeswax without any chemicals, colourants or additives.

Can you make custom sizes of dinner candles?

Since we are candle makers, we can accommodate different sizes. In fact, lost of UK wholesale candle supply orders are just for that – custom sizes beeswax candles.

Do you wholesale candle supply?

Yes, we do wholesale orders for our dripless table candles. For more information please contact us.
