Beeswax candles: How its made

We source our beeswax from ethical bee farms around Nepal and work closely with the farmers to understand the process of obtaining beeswax without harming any bees, and by growing their livelihood. It is a natural renewable resource with unlimited health and environmental benefits. 


Worker Honey Bees create beeswax naturally to help them in their process of creating a honey comb. When removing beeswax from a colony, our farmers only remove the wax when the honey is ready and no bees are harmed in the process. In Nepal, beeswax is mostly considered a by waste product, which is what we source most of. This gives bee farmers in Nepal an extra source of income.

Our beeswax candles are hand poured in our studio in Kathmandu. We double filter the raw wax from any dirt and use the wax to make our candles. The process of obtaining beeswax to creating beeswax candles takes a lot of time and skill, hence, why beeswax candles are special. Our candles allow us to support bee farming in Nepal as well as continue training marginalised women in candle making in Kathmandu.


Natural beeswax has a mild aroma of honey and wild flowers. They come in varied ranges of colour depending on the hive and its aging process. Containing no toxins or harmful chemicals, beeswax candles produce negative ions which helps purify the air around us. Beeswax candles burn cleaner, brighter and longer.
