Description

alOha : )

We're Peter & Juwels (p&j) - husband & wife, creative partners, and above all, best friends ; ) Thank you so much for buzzing by to checkout our handmade beeswax bottles : ) The inspiration for this original candle concept actually came to us by way of an antique bottle we found washed up in a tide pool. Juwels calls it "our gift from the mermaids", and we feel so lucky to bee the ones to offer this beautiful aesthetic to the world ; )

We delight in working with such a natural & heavenly scented medium such as beeswax! This brilliant wax burns longer, brighter, and cleaner than any other wax on the planet, actually ionizing the atmosphere and pulling dust and allergens from your sweet home air as it burns ; )

Pristine Quality: Each collection is hand-poured to order. When you purchase a collection directly from us, you'll receive a perfect product, packaged with exceptional care and so fresh that it only passes through the hands of the makers (ours) and then directly to yours.

Details:

Two of our most iconic bottles, good and evil, star crossed lovers, Romeo & Juliet .. these pieces tell a story together, perhaps every story that ever was.

RIBBED POISON
circa - 1800's
Size - Lrg - 6 3/4" T x 2 1/4" W

We had to hunt all the way to the UK to find this poison bottle. Purchased directly from the urban archeologist who found it, this bottle was freshly dug up from beneath the layered earth of a century old residential dump. It's unlike any we've ever seen to date. With deep grooves running down from its neck and the words "POISON. NOT TO BE TAKEN" embossed sideways across its chest, this piece feels more like an exotic snake than an antiquated household item. And besides its character and foreshadowing, this tall bold statement just so happens to be a beautiful burn. Once through the neck and shoulders, the wax melts away in staggered blades left behind by the thick ribs, and deeper still, the warning text will flicker and glow from the flame within.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

HOLY WATER
circa - early 1900's
Size - Lrg - 5 1/8" T x 2 1/4" W

This might be the the savior of the pair, but it's definitely not lacking in conflict or vivid story. History has it that the traveling priest would bring this bottle along on house calls to visit the ill and deliver last rights when needed. For burn-ability, we removed the glass stopper before building the mold for this candle, but it originally came with a long glass wand which held a small piece of natural sponge to sop up the holy water and cast around the room .. this probably came in handy when the traveling priest found himself called to an exorcism which happened a lot back then ..

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--WAX FACTS---

*Beeswax has been used since the beginning of civilization. It has been found in pharoah’s tombs, amongst sunken Viking shipwrecks and Roman ruins.

*When honey bees make their wax, it's actually an off-white color, and the beautiful golden hue and scent in our candles comes from the honey, nectar and pollen which get mixed in during the honey harvest and processing, talk about completely natural scent and color .. MmmMmmmm, take time to smell the flowers ; )

*Beeswax candles naturally emit negative ions. This process binds dust, odor and allergen particles together in the air, making them too heavy to float around and pulling them to the ground where they can be easily swept up and never find their way into your lungs and sinuses. This especially makes beeswax the ultimate burn for anyone with asthma, allergies or sensitive sinuses ; )

*Beeswax burns cleaner and longer than paraffin, soy, palm, or any other wax on the market. (99% of conventional candles are made from chemical paraffin).

*Paraffin is a byproduct of the crude oil industry and burning this wax emits toxins and carcinogens which have been known to cause cancer, birth defects, and diseases such as asthma.

*Although soy is a healthier alternative to paraffin, the truth is that soy has a very dirty carbon footprint. Soy is one of the most heavily sprayed crops with chemical pesticides which ends up in our soil and water system. It’s also one of the main causes of deforestation in the amazon, wiping out millions of acres of rain forest and unfortunately is almost always genetically modified. The more soy we buy, the more our planet will be punished in the production. If our Mother Nature had a vote, she’d most definitely choose the wax of our buzzing bee girls : )

*Beeswax production has a zZzERO carbon footprint - in fact - being delivered on the wings of honey bees, the only byproduct of this fuel is colorful pollenated flowers and sweet golden honey ; ) Thank you for helping us keep these hard working girls busy busy bees ; )

On a side note - if you haven't heard about CCD (colony collapse disorder), US based beekeepers have been hit hard by the dying off of hundreds of millions of their sweet pollinating honey bees. By supporting beeswax, you're helping to fund their ongoing efforts to stay afloat in this troubling time and find a solution to the vanishing of the bees (and in due time, the decline of the flowering plants of the food chain which we all love.. by right, the bees do pollinate 1/3 of -all- fruits and vegetables)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

--BURN TIPS--

You can see detailed tips on every candle here: http://beeswaxburntips.com

We will email our "art of candle burning" with your order, but to keep it short and sweet here, we'll list a few general tips that apply to all of our candles ; )

Always make sure to burn on a *level* heat resistant surface.

Never burn your candle in the breeze of a fan or a draft - it will blow all the flame's heat to one side of the candle and cause an uneven burn and possibly a wax spill ; (

It's best to keep your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch. Wicks can get crusty and gunked up with cooked honey and carbon. Trimming the wick will help keep a bright and beautiful burn. Also, a longer wick = a bigger flame. The bigger your flame, the quicker it sucks up your wax pool. Trim that wick for a longer burn ; )

The thicker your candle is - the longer spans of time you can leave it burning for. The rule of thumb is 1 hour per inch wide. So our masons go for about 3 hours at a time. (but we've had them burning 5 and 6 hours at a go) Beeswax burns long and bright, just keep an eye on the outer wax walls, if they look like they're going to cave in and spill the wax, blow your candle out, and let is cool for next time ; )

Beeswax candle wicks are designed to curl over when they're getting too long. This is a perfect sign that it's time to trim the wick (just below the bend where the wick is still straight). Also, if your short wick is leaning to one side, you can easily poke at it with the tip of your scissors to straighten it out and get a more symmetrical wax pool ; )
