Why Beeswax?

New Beeswax Taper Candles from Madeline Island Candles

Madeline Island Candles has always used Soy Wax for our hand-poured candles. You may have read about the advantages of using soy wax – from slow burning time and better air quality to sustainability and supporting domestic farming (read more here).

Now, we are excited to introduce a new collection of handpoured Beeswax candles, all available as beautiful 10 inch taper candles. So you may be wondering – Why Beeswax?

beeswax-tapers-pack-of-six-sand_1Beeswax Facts:

Unlike Paraffin Wax candles, Beeswax Candles burn cleanly, and because they are all natural, do not release additives or toxins into the air.

Beeswax Candles are hypo-allergenic. They can effectively reduce allergies, asthma, and hay fever by releasing negative ions, cleansing the air of dust, odors, and toxins.

Beeswax is a renewable resource, made by the worker bee for honeycomb.

Beeswax candles burn very brightly and yet slowly, lasting a longer time than paraffin candles.

Each candle is naturally scented by the honey and nectar of flowers packed into the honeycombs – so the sweet scent varies depending on the hive.

We carry both naturally colored Beeswax Candles and candles dyed with colors inspired by the colors of Madeline Island. Shop our new collection of deliciously honey-sweet, long-lasting beeswax taper candles >

      Hi Marcia,
      Sorry for the delay in our answer to you - yes, all of our beeswax candles can be shipped to your door. At present, we ship only within the U.S. and Canada. When you add one of our beeswax candles to the cart on madelineislandcandles.com, you can choose from a few different shipping options for your order. Thanks!
