Thank you so much for buzzing by to checkout our beeswax bottles : ) We absolutely LOVE working with beeswax!! When the wax pot melts into a luscious golden brew, our studio smells so MmMmmazing that the local bees fly in to see what’s cooking. We greet them with offerings of honey dipped spoons and watch them drink with delight : ) It’s magic !!

--- ITEM DESCRIPTION --

Two of our most beautiful embossed bottles - the Lime Juice bottle w/ flowers and Pan's Perfume .

------ Lime Juice: Details:

Size Md – 7 1/8 T x 1 1/8 W
circa - 1890

This bottle used to contain Lime Juice which sailors were rationed out daily by law to prevent scurvy. I imagine there are thousands of these beautiful bottles at the bottom of the sea … The heavily embossed flowers and limes look amazing as the bottle burns down, and the features start to glow.

--------- Perfume Bottle:

Size Md - 4 1/2 T x 2 W


circa - 1920

This is a glorious perfume bottle with too much detail to list. Circling the frosted glass, in song and dance, is Pan playing his pipes followed by his three maidens in flowing dress. Amidst birds and flowers and butterflies, this beautiful scene plays out. This is a very rare and valuable bottle – the envy of every collector.


Here's the listings to these two beauties:

---BURN TIPS---

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

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 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.

---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 the production. If our Mother Nature had a vote, she’d most definitely choose the wax of our buzzing bee girls : )

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