Beeswax candles - Skeps

Beeswax candles - Skeps

Before the introduction of modern bee hives, honey bees were kept in woven straw skeps.

These attractive beeswax candles depict these traditional skeps, with two designs to choose from.

Heights are 40mm, width 35mm approximately.

Burn time for each candle is approximately 4 hours.

We make all our candles and can therefore guarantee exactly what goes into each one - pure beeswax - no soy, paraffin, palm or vegetable wax. We don’t even add fragrances or essential oils to our candles, leaving them with a distinctive yet very subtle natural scent.

Each batch varies in colour slightly according to which plants the bees have visited. Our candles go from a light, sunny yellow, to a deep golden shade, all adding to their charm, and reflecting the changing seasons.

Due to the nature of beeswax, sometimes small flecks of hive debris passes through the filter, and since each candle is handmade, there will be differences between individual items.

We make all of our candles on-site at our little shop at The Old Dairy Farm Craft Centre, Upper Stowe, Northamptonshire NN7 4SH.
