Beeswax Taper Candles

Beeswax Taper Candles

$ 21.00

In a ‘world lit only by fire,’ beeswax candles added much-needed light to 17th-century homes. In the golden glow of candlelight people read the Bible and other books; wrote letters and documents like the Mayflower Compact, and worked on their sewing and other household chores.

No longer a necessity in the age of electricity, the warmth and magic of candlelight is still cherished for its beauty. It illuminates everything from birthdays to holidays, from ordinary suppers to sumptuous feasts, and brings joy and comfort at life’s special occasions. Our beeswax candles burn brightly, have low smokiness, and add just a hint of natural honeyed fragrance to the air. Enjoy their light!
