Tatine Pure Beeswax Taper Candle - Black
Set of 4 pure beeswax taper candles in a hexagonal shape. Our beeswax tapers are meant to be burned all evening, through long lingering dinners or with chapters of a good book. Beeswax tapers will naturally drip, so please mind your surfaces. Each 10 inch taper has a burn time of approximately 13 hours.
The sign of a high quality beeswax candle is the soft white powder called “bloom” that appears on the surface over time. This natural process of oils crystalizing on the surface indicates the candle is 100% natural beeswax with no additives. Bloom can be removed gently with a soft cloth, or you can leave it untouched for a rustic, antiquated look.
It was written in the "Salt Magical Papyrus" that bees were created from the tears of the sun-god Ra.
Ancient Egyptians believe that when Ra wept, the water that flowed from his eyes turned into bees upon touching the ground. The bees worked the flowers of every kind, and wax and honey came into being.
Bees and their hum are often mentioned as symbols of love; they are divine assistants to human’s earthly life, helping to keep all of nature in harmony.
Beeswax is a beautiful, magical substance that we love working with; it has a sweet, earthy, and musky aroma, producing candles with golden flames that leave no ash.
