Traditional 10" Tapers 

Our Beeswax Taper Candles are poured into custom molds at the perfect temperature by a skilled hand and a watchful eye. When the candles are finished and set to dry, they carry the rich scent of our Florida Wildflower Honey and offer a beautiful golden glow. These are our "goto candle for the dinner table or prayer altar because it does not require a "power burn" - but rather can be lit for 5 mins or 50 minutes with minimal maintenance. 

To maximize burn time, keep the candles out of drafts and away from fans and our tapers will burn dripless for about one hour per inch of length.

Over time, bees wax will develop a whitish coating called bloom. This is the result of softer oils rising to the surface. Rubbing the candle with a soft cloth or warming with a hair dryer will remove candle bloom. Once removed, bloom will again reappear on pure beeswax. Bloom has no effect on how your beeswax candle will burn.

We use only 100% pure beeswax, made from honey cappings after our honey harvest, pure cotton wick. No lead or metal wick is used in our candles.

This beeswax is harvested right from our own bees in Florida. We take our capping once or twice a year from our hives after we harvest the honey, melt it and filter it and process it into blocks & candles.

Recommended Candle Care

  • To prevent dripping, keep away from open windows, fans or excessive airflow of any kind and place your hand behind flame when blowing out.
  • Another trick to prevent dripping is to NOT trim the burnt wick before re-lighting! The long curled wick that you find should just be lit as is. Please note, this is different than all other candle styles that do benefit from regular wick trimming.
  • To minimize smoking use a snuffer to extinguish flame.
“But now we know the praises of this pillar, which glowing fire ignites for God’s honor, a fire into many flames divided, yet never dimmed by sharing of its light, for it is fed by melting wax, drawn out by mother bees to build a torch so precious.” - The Exsultet
