Cheeky Bee Candle Company

“The life of Man is said to be like a candle. The candle itself - the mortal form,
the unmelted wax - undeveloped potential, and its flame - the spirit.
For candles are not only light, but living fire.”

Cheeky Bee beeswax candles offer a healthy and enlightened candle burning
experience. Beeswax burns completely clean - non-toxic and non-allergenic. Our
candles contain no paraffin, benzene, acrolyn, lead, stearic acid, or any other chemicals,
Simply 100% Pure, Canadian Beeswax.
Beeswax is the only fuel known to science that releases a negative ion as it burns. Negative
ions are proven to eliminate dust, pollen, mould, smoke, food odour and pet dander, as well as airborne germs and bacteria. These ions are nature's way of cleaning up man's pollution.
They are a fundamental aspect of our planet's survival and are found in high concentrations in several ecological areas like mountain regions, seashores, waterfalls, and oceans. Electrical storms and rainfall also release a tremendous amount of negative ions. They help alleviate asthma and allergies and invigorate the most basic cells of the human body. Beeswax also promotes healthier and less fitful sleep and dream patterns.
Unlike paraffin's "burn off", beeswax reacts more like water and evaporates by the heat of the flame. This is one of the reasons why beeswax doesn't smoke. This is also why we recommend that you maintain the wick at 1/4 inch (the higher the flame, the hotter the flame, the faster the evaporation). Beeswax has a considerably higher melting point than paraffin. Because it takes longer to melt, it therefore burns much slower. This is how we are able to claim such incredible burn times for our candles.
As a result, beeswax burns very efficiently and thus costs pennies an hour to burn, making it economical as well. We utilize an all natural plant fibre wick in our candles. This is consistent with the purity and perfection of our wax. Our wick is better able to withstand the high melting point of beeswax, thereby allowing one to safely use the entire candle - right down to the base.
With each Cheeky Bee candle, you are guaranteed the cleanest beeswax available. We fully render our wax and put each batch through a triple-filter process. This removes any and all impurities and exemplifies the best and most beautiful beeswax that nature has to offer. It burns with a brilliant, golden flame that will enhance any spiritual experience. It's positive vibration will charm and illuminate - bringing heightened connection, awareness, and positive energy to any gathering or meditative session. Beeswax comes in a variety of shades and tones depending on the region and the nectar's source from which it is harvested. At Cheeky Bee, we use only the cappings of the hive, meaning we do not use the traditionally darker comb wax. It is interesting to note that the various shades of beeswax and honey eerily resembles the skin tones of every human being on earth.
Bees will travel over 50,000 miles and pollinate over 2 million flowers to generate 1/4 of a pound of pure beeswax. Beeswax is actually white, but turns yellow due to the natural colour of pollen: something bees collect in abundance. The sweet aroma is the true essence of 10,000 flowers.
The connection between the bee and a "higher power" can be traced back to the time of the ancient Egyptians. It is customary that ceremonial candles be made from natural beeswax, the significance being that the bee literally processes the 'nectars of the Gods'. Because of its purity and natural origins, beeswax burns on the identical light spectrum as fire: a source that is conducive to the relaxation of the retina (of the eye) and thus helping to ease tension on the central nervous system. Our candles produce an aura of relaxation and are ideal for meditation, yoga sessions, romantic evenings, or to simply add a natural light ambiance.
Beeswax will occasionally develop a layer of dust, or bloom on its exterior. This is
natural and to be expected, especially when sitting over a period of time. You
can simply rub it off with a dry cloth or use a hair dryer to remove the dust.

Beeswax does not spoil & due to its consistency, it can be safely stored and kept forever.

95% of the world's candles contain some percentage of paraffin wax. Paraffin is a petroleum bi-product that requires more chemicals to harden, colour and scent it, as well as releasing numerous toxins as you burn it (easily identified by black soot). Paraffin has a low melting point resulting in inefficient use of the material. It also contributes to Paraffinoma, a condition arising from the exposure to and use of paraffin based products. Common ailments include itchy watery eyes, sore throat, blocked nasal passages, headaches and skin irritations. Don't be fooled by "aromatherapy" candles. Despite the fact that wonderful essential oils are used, paraffin wax is still the foundation. Paraffin is a cheap, wasteful alternative to burning the real thing - 100% pure, all natural beeswax.
