Each Island Candle is unique and made with love in Duncan, BC. Our wicks are 100% cotton, ensuring no soot is produced, which could otherwise damage your lungs and the walls of your home.
With the longest, cleanest burn of any candle, beeswax candles cost 30-60 cents per hour to burn and melt at a significantly slower rate than paraffin candles.
You receive health benefits straight out of the hive from beeswax candles that paraffin candles can never give. Beeswax releases negative ions into our air, combating allergens such as mold, odors, pet dander, viruses and dust.
My family has been involved with beeswax for decades. I've been coming up with unique creations and perfecting my craft on Vancouver Island for the last 13 years.
I source all my wax from Western Canada and all of the wicks are cotton. I took up chandlering (fancy candle-making) full time when injuries forced me to give up my regular lifestyle.
The fulfillment and joy of lighting up the west coast with healthy and relaxing creations has been incomparable and such a blessing.
Thank you for supporting Island Beeswax!
