Our 100% Pure Beeswax Candles

Medway Candle beeswax candle are all-beeswax, and that's a big deal. Candles with as little as 10% beeswax can be labeled "beeswax"--and too often are! If your "beeswax" candles aren't labeled "100% beeswax" they may contain large amounts of other waxes. Candles that aren't all-beeswax burn faster, drip and smoke. 100% pure beeswax candles should burn 4-5 times slower than paraffin.

We also use 100% cotton or paper wicks (depending on the type of candle), ordered from a reputable supplier. Our beeswax comes from a large honey producer whose harvest includes golden blocks of filtered beeswax. Mike hand-dips 7, 8 and 9-inch tapers (and other sizes by custom order), working late into the night by the heat of a Black Bear woodstove while he listens to jazz.

Votives, tea lights, hearts in two sizes and pillars are poured by hand into metal molds, allowed to cool, then removed from the molds and hand-finished. For ordering information or price lists, send us a comment on this blog; we'll get back to you within a day.
