why this product

Make your next birthday cake even sweeter with these pure, innately honey-scented beeswax candles with 100% cotton wicks. Most candles found in your local dollar store or supermarket are made out of paraffin, fitted with a synthetic wick including a zinc or tin core. When the paraffin and metals are burned, toxins are emitted. These birthday candles are each hand-dipped in Oregon using 100% cotton wicks and beeswax sourced from the northwest United States. They have a pleasant amber color from the pure beeswax and will burn without any harmful side effects.

use & care

Place a candle in a cupcake, light it up, and begin celebrating. Or, stick all twelve in the set atop a layer cake and start the birthday serenade. Make a wish and blow out the beeswax candles! Save the candles for next year, because each individual candle has a burn time of approximately 30 minutes, and can be reused. Make sure to trim the wick before you relight it. Never leave a burning candle unattended.

production & design

The founder of this candle company got her start as a bee farmer in 1985. In 2004, she decided to start her own candle company, sourcing beeswax from nearby bee farmers. This 3 person company creates every candle by hand, going through about 15,000 pounds of beeswax per year. To create the birthday candles, the cotton wicks are dipped into the beeswax about 7 times, allowing the layers of wax to build up. Because they are hand-dipped, the candles are not completely uniform, but instead have a unique, handmade look.
