3x3 Inch Beeswax Foundation Pillar
Regular price $25.00
This hand-poured pillar has a beeswax foundation pattern and will burn up to an estimated 35 hours if handled properly. Beeswax foundation is found inside beehives in frames; the bees draw out the honeycomb and use it for storing honey, pollen and water and growing baby bees. Made from 100% pure beeswax, which is pure and sustainable with no paraffin, soy, colorants or fragrances added. Don’t burn the candle for more than three hours at a time, less for the first burn, and always trim the wick to ¼” before each burn. Instead of blowing out the candle, push the wick into the melted wax. Please never burn a pillar for more than four hours or you risk developing a hole in the wall of the pillar, near the flame. Feel free to roll down the edges of the wax as the pillar burns down. And always use a fireproof plate to hold it. Beeswax is easy to clean up; it becomes very brittle when cold and can be scraped up. Over time, pure beeswax can develop a bloom, or white patina, it is proof of the purity of the candle. If you prefer to remove it, simply rub it with cheesecloth, or heat the outside surface of the pillar with a handheld hair dryer.
