♥ 100% PURE Beeswax Candles ♥
from Mohawk Valley Trading Company!
*I was provided with 100% PURE Beeswax Candles from Mohawk Valley Trading Company to facilitate this review. All opinions and experiences are my own. Affiliate links may be present in this post.
I was so excited to explore more products from Mohawk Valley Trading Company! This time, I was able to learn about the process of making Beeswax Candles, test them out myself and share with family. (Based on my extended family’s reaction, I know they would make wonderful gifts!)
The candles arrived carefully wrapped in tissue and are so subtle in scent. Pleasant and even in golden color and smooth texture. Whether you use candles for decor, scent or lighting – they would be a welcomed addition in any home!
My candles have found placement in my dining room- a fine addition to my espresso colored wicker basket. I just adore the design of the natural paper label surrounding the pillar, and binding the taper and birthday sets! AND I definitely appreciate the cleaner burn without the black soot left behind on my candle holders!

DID YOU KNOW?
Interesting facts about Beeswax Candles!
100% Pure Beeswax Candles from The Mohawk Valley Trading Company are hand dipped or hand poured and made from 100% all natural, unbleached yellow beeswax, produced by their bees in the USA.
Beeswax is one of the oldest sources of artificial light and today is still the most natural candle material. The lovely fresh scent, and a long burn time.
Beeswax is created by honeybees from honey which is made from flower nectar. High quality beeswax candles are made from the melted and filtered caps that seal the honeycomb and the honeycomb itself. It is clear when produced but stained yellow from contact with pollen and honey. Honeybees consume 6-8 pounds of honey to produce one pound of beeswax.
Nothing is added to a 100% pure beeswax candle.
There are many benefits to choosing beeswax over paraffin candles. Beeswax candles burn clean; unlike paraffin they do not contain any additives or synthetic chemicals. Cheap paraffin candles leave behind black soot from smoke as they are burned. The soot can damage furniture and irritate sensitive people. If the wick is the wrong size, wrong type or off center the candle will burn unevenly and liquid wax will drip and pool around the candle, potentially damaging its surroundings or even causing burns.
When burned correctly, with a trimmed wick and in a draft free zone beeswax candles are smoke free, soot free and drip free. When burned they emit negative ions, thought by some to clean the air and prevent problems with asthma and depression.
The higher cost of beeswax candles can be off-putting but a much longer burn time makes them a more economical choice than paraffin. Beeswax candles also burn brighter. They are often available without any added chemical scents or colors. This makes them ideal for people with chemical sensitivities or allergies. Beeswax itself has a subtly honey or floral scent even when it is not burning. The color of the wax ranges from pale buttery yellow to deep golden yellow based on the pollen used by the bees to produce the honey and wax.
