Set of 2 English beeswax stubby candles
These candles are the sort of gift that you wish people would buy you!
These candles are made in Cumbria using the traditional candle-making technique of hand dipping. This time-consuming process involves repeatedly dipping wicks hung from a frame into molten wax, gradually building up each candle layer by layer. To make even a narrow candle may take around 15 dippings with time allowed for each layer to cool before applying the next.
Natural beeswax can range from a creamy white to bright yellows, oranges and even dark browns. The colour is determined, in part, to how much the wax has been filtered and to the flowers which the bees have been foraging on. These candles are made in England and the colours vary between a creamy white to dark amber, with a natural and subtle honey scent.
