No other material burns like 100% pure beeswax – it’s clean, it’s luxurious, and the light is soft and romantic.
Hand Rolled Beeswax Pillars feature a distinctive honeycomb embossed texture. As they burn, the layers of beeswax become translucent creating a soft glow and give off a light, sweet honey scent without the addition of any artificial fragrance.
Beeswax is an all natural material. Slight color variation from photos is possible and could range from cream to golden yellow.
For Best Results:
Trim the wick to 1/4″ before each burn. Proper trimming ensures that your beeswax candle will burn with a strong, bright, beautiful flame. A wick that is too long can cause the candle to smoke or drip.
Burn pillars for 1 hour per inch of diameter (e.g. Burn 3″ pillar at least 3 hrs per session.) This ensures the wick burns the candle to the edge.
After extinguishing your candle, gently press the warm edges of the candle slightly towards its center to help maintain shape.
Light candle at the base of the wick, near the candle surface. This allows the beeswax to absorb into the wick.
Benefits of 100% Beeswax Candles:
Beeswax is natural, non-toxic, sustainable & renewable (Paraffin wax is a byproduct of petroleum)
Beeswax candles burn very clean, producing hardly any soot
Beeswax candles release negative ions when burned which clean the air of dust, pollens, & odors
Beeswax burns longer than other waxes and does not drip
Beeswax burns brighter with the same light spectrum as the sun
SIPS + MAKER was established in 2017 by Estera P. Alvarado. After 12+ years in the interior design and furniture industry, Estera was inspired to fulfill her dream of a joint coffee bar and specialty shop.
She designed a space that she believed Staten Island would embrace. Her love of travel, art and design were a driving force in the creation of SIPS + MAKER.
A gathering place for the community and supporting artisans became her passion.
