AT BLOSSOM BEE CANDLES WE ONLY WORK WITH 100% NATURAL CANDLE WAX. Rapeseedwax, beeswax and organic coconut oil. The  wicks we use are made from unbleached braided cotton. As our candles are handmade, small imperfections or color variations may occur. 


Rapeseed is a clear, yellow blooming plant. It's completely sustainable, with no issues of intensive farming or GMO presence. Locally grown in The Netherlands and therefor has a low carbon-footprint. The oil coming from the rapeseed plant is not firm enough on its own to make candles from, so its mixed with other components. The rapeseed blend that we use is 100% natural.

Bees hold great importance in nature and the economy. They also play a keyrole in our ecosystem. Unfortunately not all beeswax is produced in a cruelty free way. For this reason we only work with local trusted beekeepers.

 So, why beeswax candles?
Candles made from beeswax are the healthiest candles available and have numerous (health)benefits! To make you to fall in love with beeswax just like we did, here are some fun facts & benefits:
  • Beeswax candles are pretty rare and therefor more expensive than regular candles. Beeswax costs about 10 times more than parrafin, but they will burn up to 6 times longer than your average candle
  • It's estimated that the bees must fly more than 200,000 km to collect enough nectar to produce 2,5 kg of honey just to make 500 grams of wax
  • The only candle that emits negative ions into the air that purify, cleanse and improve airquality
  • 100% natural, chemical-free, free from toxins & GMO's
  • Hypo-allergenic, known to relieve symptoms for those with environmental allergies, sensitivities and asthma
  • They smell amazing without adding any fragrance and the light that beeswax candles produce is warm light, just like the sun!

    All beeswax varies in color. Color variations are common and completely normal. Natural beeswax can range from creamy white to bright yellow, orange or dark brown. So when you buy a beeswax candle, the color might be slightly different than on the picture. The color of beeswax depends on a few factors:

  • What flowers the bees have been foraging on.

  • How much the wax has been filtered

  • The bees‘ race

  • The storage conditions. Beeswax fades in sunlight. It gets white (we call that bloom) in the cold. Whenever you warm the candle, the white cover will disappear.
