We work with a small workshop in Cumbria to produce our pure beeswax candles. From their base in the Pennines - an area of oustanding beauty - they have been producing hand-dipped candles for over 40 years.
The time-honoured technique of dipping is a slow and gradual process. The wicks are hung from a metal frame which is dipped at intervals into the molten wax. Each layer is cooled before they are dipped again, with this process repeated until the desired shape is reached. Some are dipped up to 20 times.
Dipping with beeswax can be traced back to the middle ages, when it was considered noble and reserved for the church and the wealthy. Pure beeswax is renowned for it's subtle honey scent and golden hue. It burns cleanly - unlike parrafin wax - with barely any smoke or drips.
This current batch of candles is made in Cumbria using African beeswax.
