Thank you so much for buzzing by to checkout our beeswax bottles : ) My husband and I pour these little beauties every chance we get. When the wax pot melts into a luscious golden brew, our kitchen smells so MmMmmazing that the local bees fly in through the windows and skylights to see what’s cooking. We greet them with offerings of honey dipped spoons and watch them drink with delight : ) It’s magic !!

This candle is a reproduction of an antique bottle marked "POISON" dating back to the early 1900's. This is a standout candle in our collection, a show piece.

The word, "POISON" is boldly embossed on the front left and right sides. When lit, the wax and text becomes aglow with the flicker of candle light through it's sweet-smelling transparent walls.

Watching the bottleneck hollow out and cave in is show not to be missed. Every candle in our collection is constantly reinventing it's look as it slowly melts and transforms. They're cute - but don't be afraid to burn them ; )

Aprox Size - 2 3/4" tall by 1 1/2" wide by 1" deep


Our candles are made from 100% raw beeswax and never supplemented with cheap, toxic fillers such as paraffin. (this is a biggie :) Our collection (16 candles) is made up of a diverse array of bottles: medicine bottles, creams, tinctures, extracts, poison, first aid, old shear-top hand-blown inkwells, and much more.

My fascination with antique bottles started one day while I was beach combing a local tide pool here in Southern California. Amongst the hustle and bustle of hermit crabs and sea pickles, I found a very old bottle half filled with sand and soon to be buried and forgotten.

I brought the bottle home, cleaned it up, and displayed it on my counter top next to some special shells, candles, and crystals. I loved the old world look of it, and found myself collecting more and more of them at local antique markets. The collection finally tapered off at 16 bottles, (more to come) and the desire to share this unique and historical aesthetic with family and friends led me to the idea to build some replicas from the most natural and perfect molding substance around - Beeswax : )

Until now, we have only given these little treasures to friends and family as gifts, but everyone liked them so much, and friends of friends were contacting us wanting to start their own collections, so we've stepped up the process a little bit, and we're now spending lovely spans of the week together hand pouring and detailing these one-of-a-kind candles. We LOVE it ! We hope these candles will find a place in your home and in your heart.

- SHIPPING -

We DO combine shipping for multiple items !! (And we'll ship worldwide, just convo us to setup the details) The shipping cost on many of our candles drop to .50 cents when included with another item, so pile them in … once we’ve got a box headed out to you .. might as well fill all the seats : )

- Burn Tips -

Burning beeswax candles sometimes takes some “tending”. One easy trick is to trim your wick every once in a while. If your wick gets too long, you’ll notice a tall flame (a flame over 3/4 inch is too tall), so you’ll want to trim the wick down to about 1/4 of an inch. A large flame sucks up wax too quickly, so your candle won’t last as long ; (

And on the flip side, if you notice that your flame seems to be shrinking or there’s a carbon ball or “mushroom” at it’s tip, a wick trimming may be in needed. Sometimes the top of the wick becomes crispy and nonfunctional, and this inhibits the suction function of the wick, so just nip off the top, and your flame will love you for it. A great time to trim the wick is before you lite it back up : ) Also, be mindful of how long you burn your candles for. Burning for too long at a given time will eventually melt the outer walls and spill the wax pool (your precious fuel). The best-case formula is to try and burn your candles only one hour for every inch thick in diameter, so a three inch candle could go for three hour spans, two inch for two hours and so on.

We DO combine shipping for multiple items !! Shipping on the first candle is 3, and on the second, we move up to the Priority Mailer for 5, and you can fit as many other candles as will fit for the same 5 dollars shipping.

And we offer a discount to anyone who wants the whole collection : )

WAX FACTS:

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

*Beeswax candles are naturally scented by the honey and nectar of flowers.

*Beeswax candles naturally emit negative ions , cleaning the air and invigorating the body.

*Beeswax is by far the healthiest wax and burns cleaner and longer than paraffin or soy (99% of conventional candles are paraffin).

*Paraffin is a byproduct of petroleum and burning paraffin candles emits toxins and carcinogens in your sweet home air.

*Although soy is a healthy 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. It’s one of the main causes of deforestation in the amazon, wiping out millions of acres of rain forest and is almost always genetically modified. The more of this we buy, the more our planet will be punished in production. If our Mother Nature had a vote, she’d most definitely choose the wax of our buzzing bee boys : )

*Beeswax is a natural and renewable resource and definitely the best wax for candle making!!!
