Beeswax CandlesThe finest wax you can find! Our beeswax candles are handmade with 100% all natural beeswax from bee farms in the USA. Each beeswax candle, no matter the size, will release negative ions into the air. These negative ions attach to pollutants and allergens in the air, such as pollen. Our beeswax candles burn an inch an hour, giving them an impressively long burn time. These candles require care to allow for them to produce their best burn. Find all our beeswax candles here!

Beeswax How to Burn:

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch or less to prevent soot
  • Keep away from drafts & ceiling fans
  • Extinguishing too soon will cause tunneling & shorten overall burn time
  • Extinguish when liquid pool of beeswax reaches edge to edge
  • Burn multi-wick pillars until all beeswax pools merge together
  • Prevent smoke & splattering by pushing wicks into melted wax pool
  • Straighten the wicks back out of the wax pool once they are extinguished
  • While warm, gently push walls of candle toward center. Curling the warm walls of the candle inward will allow for the candle to continue burning down the center.

Candlestock Veneer Candles: These unique and colorful candles are lovingly handmade by Candlestock's candle makers here in Woodsotck, New York. The marble like design on the outside will never burn away! Instead, the veneer candle will burn straight down the center causing the outer design to glow beautifully. Once the original wick has completely burned away, you can place a tea light candle inside and continue to enjoy the glow from the veneer design. Each candle has a long burn time and is drip free as long as it is kept out of drafty areas. You can find out veneer pillar candles here! Our veneer ball candles here! And our painted veneer candles here!

How to Burn Veneer Candles:

  • Keep wicks trimmed to 1/4 inch & away from drafts
  • Do not allow the liquid pool of wax to extend closer then a 1/2 inch to the edge
  • First time burning, allow liquid pool of wax to extend no cloer than 1/2 inch to the edge and then extinguish. Allow liquid pool to completely harden before lighting again
  • Extinguishing too soon will cause tunneling & shorten overall burn time

Inlay Pillar CandlesEach beautiful inlay pillar candle is handmade in California. The intricate designs are all made of wax. The outer design will never burn away and instead will glow as the wick burns down the center. You can place a tea light candle inside the outer design once the original wick has burned out. You can find the inlay pillar candles here!

How to Burn Inlay Pillar Candles: 

  • Keep the candle away from drafts
  • Keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 inch
  • When first burning, do not allow the liquid pool of wax to go beyond the outer solid color disc around the top. Extinguish when the liquid pool of wax reaches the outer disc.
  • After first burning, allow liquid pool to harden completely before lighting again. 
  • Extinguishing too soon may cause tunneling which will cause the wick to put its self out

    Drip Candles: These Candlestock staples have a fast burn time of 20 to 30 minutes and will completely liquify into drips. Make sure to keep an eye on these candles as they burn! Simply place a drip candle into an old wine bottle or similar holder and watch as it drips colorful wax over the container. Once one is done burning, place another drip candle directly on top and continue your drip creation! Find all of our drip candles here!

    Votive Candles: These short candles will completely liquify, or melt down, if left unattended. If you wish to burn a votive candle either place it in a cup that hugs it snuggly on all sides, or place it onto a plate that will allow for it melt down. 

    Tea Light Candles: Each tea light candle comes self contained in either tin or plastic. Simply light these small candles and watch as they burn down inside their containers! No extra holders necessary, only if desire to burn them within one of our many home decor pieces. These tea light candles are perfect for our himalayan rock salt holders, various wall sconces and metal hanging lanterns.
