Many people have questions about beeswax candles, and here are our answers! We love beeswax, and love getting them into your homes too.
Why are beeswax candles better?
Why is there a space around the sides of my beeswax candle?
Beeswax is poured while it is hot, and as it dries, it can shrink up to 10%. This is normal and does not affect your candle burn.
Why does my beeswax candle not melt all the way to the sides?
This is called "tunneling". Tunneling can happen with any candle, not just beeswax. This happens when you do not burn the candle for at least one hour on the first burn. By burning for at least an hour with the first burn, it helps your candle to melt all of the wax across the diameter of the container. If it just lights a little, and then melts a "tunnel" into the wax, it will not burn correctly in the future.
