The candles made of beeswax have a characteristic yellow color that represents the collected pollen by the bees. These candles are handmade with 100% pure beeswax, so it is a natural item without additives nor chemical elements. They have several ecological and healthy properties, for example, it is proven that they clean the environment off dirty air particles such as dust and pollen. When they are lit the beeswax leaves a fragrance that makes any room cozy and relaxing.
In old times, beeswax was used exclusively for certain social classes. In the Middle Age, Philip IV of France dictated that only kings should use beeswax for royal seals. Nowadays the beeswax's candles are on the rise due to their ecological value and their renewable and respectful material. In Velas de la Ballena we offer the 100% pure beeswax handmade taper candles in two sizes: the large one that lasts up to 4.5 hours and the small one with a duration of up to 3 hours.
