We hand-pour beeswax taper candles in our little shop here in Harrisonburg, Virginia. We have a vision for a different sort of work environment - one where folks on the margins of society can find a supportive way to bring some income, but also a positive space for good friendship and conversation, no matter your background! So if you're ever in our neck o' the woods, come pull up a chair, have a chat, or make a candle!

These Beewax Tapers come beautifully boxed in a BeeTheLight Logo gift box! Each candle measures 8.5" tall and about 7/8" at the base.

Each candle will last about 12 hours each (144 hours total burn time for a dozen) IF all the burn instructions seen below are followed!). 

A few great things about BeeTheLight's tapers:

  • Beeswax is the most natural, unprocessed, and longest-lasting of all the candle waxes
  • While burning other types of candles pollute the air, beeswax taper candles actually PURIFY the air as they burn, and are a great option for folks with allergies
  • BeeTheLight exists to support a wholesome life together and a number of humanitarian projects (check out our "Get to Know Us!" page)

 Get the most out of your candle!

These 100% pure beeswax taper candles will last around 12 hours each and burn virtually smokeless and dripless if you follow the following: Trim the wick to about ¼ inch. Burn away from drafts and keep the wick trimmed throughout the entire burn. Use a match to heat and soften the bottom of your taper, then secure it into nearly any size taper holder - the heated bottom will cool and harden, "cementing" your candle in place. Always burn in a holder, on fireproof surfaces and away from children, and anything flammable. NEVER leave candles unattended

Ethically sourced, crafted with a purpose.

We use 100% pure USA beeswax and pour our candles by hand. Our vision is a social enterprise that nourishes people, planet and soul, while starving hatred, greed, and the Evil Empire.
A bit about wax: the mass amount of candles out there burn paraffin wax. Unlike the stuff of the bees, paraffin is petroleum-based and highly toxic when burned, releasing at least two known carcinogens into the air (benzene and toluene). Beeswax, on the other hand, is not only a sustainable source of illumination, it is also a purifying one. Burning beeswax taper candles releases negative ions that cleanse the air. The light they emit is also an essential ingredient to effective late-night conspiring. Plus, they smell like honey. Which is awesome.
