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.


Our beeswax candles will arrive as a pair, joined at the wick. To use for the first time, trim the wick to around 10mm and then place on a small plate or in a candlestick.

Trim the wick to 10mm every time you light your candle. A longer wick will result in a larger flame, which will burn through the wax too quickly. Keep away from draughts to ensure an even burn.

Never leave a burning candle unattended. Keep out of the reach of children and pets. Leave at least 10cm between candles and do not burn on or near anything that can catch fire. Do not relight when the wax level is less than 10mm.
