WHY BUY/BURN BEESWAX?
Beeswax burns longer than other waxes. It cleans and purifies the air and leaves a pleasant scent. It has a beautiful glow with a kind of halo around the flame. By buying beeswax candles you are supporting the welfare of bees, a critical pollinator for the human food supply.
Mithras Rustic Tapers
The ancient god Mithras was of Persian/Zoroastrian origin, a protector of truth and a god of illumination who was later incorporated into a mystery cult in ancient Rome. It is thought that beeswax candles first made an appearance in the west during Roman Mithraic mystery rituals. His symbol frequently involves a lion, sometimes with a bee in its mouth, which we have adopted.
- Never leave a burning candle unattended, or with unsupervised pets or young children.
- Don't place a burning candle near, under, or on top of any flammable materials.
- Get matches that are long to give yourself more lighting time, or get a quality refillable lighter with a strong flame.
- Don't fall asleep with candles burning, silly!
