LeeAnn Townsend, Owner
We've been supplying premium beeswax to candle makers across the country for years via our family honey farm, (Townsend Honey Farm LLC). We've taken our expertise even further to create our own luxury candle and melt line using our top-tier beeswax. We've perfected our rendering process by hand and developed a special method to ensure the best natural fragrance and color. We work with beeswax every day and know it inside out. Our candles feature beeswax straight from the source, no middleman involved. As a family rooted in the realm of commercial beekeeping, the splendor of bees, honey, and beeswax lies at the heart of our expertise.
Why Pure Beeswax?
Discover the plentiful benefits of beeswax, where longevity, purity, and environmental harmony converge. Emitting a radiant glow, beeswax candles unleash negative ions, effectively purifying the air by combatting allergens and dust. Even after their glow fades, the remnants of beeswax candles find new life as compost, nourishing gardens with their eco-friendly composition. With a compact molecular structure, these candles proudly emit 50% less smoke and leave no soot behind when ignited. Boasting the highest melting point among all waxes, beeswax candles effortlessly extend their burn time, a testament to their natural origins as masterfully crafted gifts from the bees themselves.
Why Pure Beeswax Candles & Melts Command a Premium Price:
Exceptional Quality: Beeswax candles are renowned for their superior quality and performance. They burn longer and cleaner compared to other types of candles, providing a longer-lasting and more enjoyable experience. The unique composition of beeswax results in a beautiful, warm glow and a subtle, natural fragrance.
Natural and Sustainable: Beeswax is a natural substance created by bees, making it a sustainable and renewable resource. The beeswax used in our candles is carefully sourced from us, the beekeepers, who prioritize the well-being of our bees. By choosing beeswax candles, you are supporting sustainable practices and reducing your environmental impact.
Labor-Intensive Production: Crafting beeswax candles involves meticulous attention to detail and specialized techniques. The process of rendering, filtering, and purifying beeswax requires time, skill, and careful handling. All our candles and melts are handcrafted in small batches, ensuring the highest quality and attention to detail.
Purity: Beeswax is celebrated for its purity. Our commitment to using 100% pure beeswax without adding any other waxes means that you can enjoy a clean and non-toxic candle-burning experience.
Limited Supply: Beeswax is a precious commodity, and the availability of high-quality beeswax can be limited. The process of beekeeping and harvesting beeswax is labor-intensive, and the quantity produced by bees is naturally restricted. As a result, the limited supply of beeswax contributes to the higher cost of beeswax candles.
Supporting Local Beekeepers: By purchasing beeswax candles, you are directly supporting local beekeepers and their vital role in pollination and maintaining bee populations. Your investment in beeswax candles helps sustain these important beekeeping practices and promotes the well-being of honeybee colonies.
