"Essential" oils are aromatic liquids extracted from plant parts that carry the plant's unique essence, as well as many of its healthy compounds. Honey Candles® line of essential votives are made with 100% pure beeswax, gently infused with natural and healthy essential oils for a light home fragrance, hand made in Canada. Using only safe and environmentally-friendly ingredients: no solvents, heavy metals, nor any other toxins commonly found in candles. Great for your health, beeswax candles emit distinct compounds when they burn, neutralizing airborne contaminants and allergens. No wonder they've been recommended by the American Lung Association. Better yet, beeswax candles produce a natural glow that closely resembles sunlight.
LAVENDER: A unique combination of lavender and sweet orange makes for a soothing votive candle that is both citrusy and flowery. A dash of black pepper adds a subtle spicy touch to make a one-of-a-kind beeswax votive candle.
MULLED SPICE: A gentle fusion of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger essential oils, Honey Candles® mulled spice votive is guaranteed to soothe, and add warmth to any room.
KOOTNEY FOREST: Inspired by the pristine wilderness of the Kootenay Forest in the heart of British Columbia, this beeswax votive candle blends the soft scents of pine, fir and cedar essential oils
ROSEMARY MINT: A blissful blend of essential oils from soothing rosemary and refreshing peppermint that is sure to please
EVENING BLOOM: Honey Candles® Evening Bloom votive is an infusion of ylang ylang and rosewood essential oils inspired by a floral breeze on a warm summer evening. The "flower of flowers", ylang ylang is an ancient secret of Eastern Asia, used in aromatherapy to relieve blood pressure and improve skin condition, among other benefits. Mixed with the gentle scent of rosewood, Honey Candles® Essential Votive Evening Bloom is sure to delight your senses.
CITRONELLA: Citronella comes from the leaves and stems of lemongrass and has been known for millenia to have many wonderful properties, from repelling insects and fighting fungus, to calming pets and improving skin condition. Honey Candles® Citronella votive is infused with natural citronella oil, with a soft subtle scent that doesn't overwhelm the senses like many synthetic fragrances
Tip: Beeswax votives are unique in that they are designed to fully liquefy as they burn. That means they need to be lit in a cup. Try a clear glass votive cup - you'll be pleasantly surprised at the ambient glow that it creates!
Honey Candles is a Canadian company that is not your ‘average’ beeswax candle maker. Honey Candles has been around since 1994. Every candle we make is hand poured or hand dipped. Quality comes before all else. It would be easy to look at the market and say that maybe our standards are too high, that maybe we could cut some corners. But instead we have moved forward making our labels ever more sophisticated and our candles always beautiful. Roy and Leah Honkanen are the owners at Honey Candles and that’s the way they like it.
So do the employees. It feels good to be part of an organization that cares enough to put only the best beeswax they can find into their natural beeswax candles. It is empowering to be part of the decision making. Suggestions and new ideas for candles by the employees are always considered. No wonder only elegant and beautiful candles leave our shop – they are made in an atmosphere of respectful collaboration.
The Honey Candles shop is near Kaslo BC overlooking pristine Kootenay Lake in Southern British Columbia. We are an exceptionally reliable source of beeswax candles and incense sold under the brand names Honey Candles® and Jin Incense®. We are known for our prompt, thoughtful and pleasant customer service. We work to create variety in our lines because we know it makes our customers happy.
