Tea Light Candles
Our tea light candles are made from the finest quality extra pure beeswax and 100% cotton wicks. The candles are made to fit perfectly in reusable glass tea light cups. They are larger in volume (upwards of 40% larger than competitors' tea lights), and the flame burns noticeably larger and brighter. The larger and brighter flame requires more beeswax which our tea light provides.
Available in natural yellow or ivory-white colour beeswax. Yellow beeswax has a natural honey scent.
Ivory white tea lights are custom made to order at this time so please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for availability.
See also our Candle Care page for tips on how to burn beeswax tea light candles successfully.
Burn Time – approx. 3 to 5 hours
MORE ABOUT TEA LIGHTS
Tea lights are the “canary in the coal mine” as far as beeswax “quality” is concerned. 100% cotton wicking is sensitive when it comes to dirt, debris or even excess honey in the wax which can easily clog the wick causing it to sputter and eventually extinguish. Unless the wax is properly cleaned, the candle won’t burn well, period.
Where some of our competitors have to use a paper core wick (which is more tolerant of impurities in the wax), we can successfully use a square-braid 100% cotton wick in our tea lights. This is because our wax is filtered down to 1 micron and is therefore clean enough to burn nicely with the 100% cotton wick.
