Beeswax Tapers 12 inches tall Hexagon Shaped Base Set of 2 in White


SKU: HEX TPR S/2 WHT Category:


A pair of lovely tapers in a hexagonal cross-section (the same shape as the bees’ cells in the hive!) These are 12 inches tall and very dramatic. Someone rustic finish from the tin molds they were formed in. Made of white beeswax and 100% cotton wick for non-toxic light. Burn time: at least 15 hours.

NOTE: Be sure you have proper holders for these! They measure exactly 1 inch in diameter at the base, hence they are BIGGER than the standard taper, which will vary from 3/4″ to 7/8″ Measure your holders before purchasing!  You could always carve them to fit, but some folks aren’t into that so… just letting you know. 🙂

The color varies in this wax a bit, from a soft white to almost ivory. The bleaching method to obtain our White Beeswax is NOT chemical, but it is a PHYSICAL method. The natural beeswax is warmed up to 100 °C and melted. Decoloration earth and coal (carbon) are added then it is filtered through a < 5 micron filter for a few times to obtain the total elimination of the coal particles. The end result is a nice white product that is still pure and chemical-free.

Also available in natural; check the Taper section in my shop.
