About our candles
What ingredients do you use?
All three of our flagship candles contain a wax blend of simply organic coconut oil and 100% pure, naturally refined white beeswax (no chemicals or bleaching agents used). Each of the three candles then feature a different organic essential oil blend and natural gemstones, listed below:
Lavender & Amethyst:
Essential oil blend of Organic Lavender, Organic Lemongrass and Organic Peru Balsam.
Topped with crushed natural amethyst crystals.
Peppermint & Rose Quartz:
Essential oil blend of Organic Peppermint, Organic Fir Needle and Organic Peru Balsam.
Topped with crushed natural rose quartz crystals.
Cinnamon & Citrine:
Essential oil blend of Organic Cinnamon Bark and Organic Peru Balsam.
Topped with crushed natural citrine crystals.
I have allergies, can I burn these candles?
Yes, both beeswax and coconut oil are non-toxic and hypoallergenic. In fact, these candles help cleanse the air and your environment. As the candle burns, negative ions are emitted that clean the air. The negative ions are drawn to positive ions, positive ions are the ions that hold on to things like dust, mold and odors; the negative ions latch on to the positive ions which are loaded with "contaminants" causing them to drop cleaning and purifying the air. A great example is that of a rainstorm, it is a negative ionic event, which is why we say the air smells so fresh after a rainstorm. You can feel safe using Bee Lucia candles anywhere in the house.
It's important to note that most candles are not safe for your home and can aggravate allergies or lung & respiratory conditions. Paraffin candles (petroleum based) with synthetic fragrance oils, increase indoor air pollution. Recent studies have shown paraffin candles especially ones scented with synthetic fragrance oils, can increase indoor air pollution. Synthetic fragrance oils are commonly used to scent most candles (even cleaner burning soy candles) and contain phthalates to stabilize and enhance the scent. Phthalates are a common hazardous chemical known to cause harmful abnormalities, birth defects and reproductive problems.
Are the glass containers reusable?
Yes, in fact we highly recommend you reuse the glass candle container. They’re very high quality and make wonderful drinking glasses. We like using them for “wellness shots” ;)
How do you clean the leftover wax from the glass container?
We’ve found the most effective method is to warm the container slightly in an oven on very low heat or in a bowl of warm water. This will soften the wax enough to remove with a butter knife. If there’s still wax residue remaining, you can turn the glass upside down on a paper towel covered cookie sheet and place in the oven on very low heat. The remaining wax will melt off. Carefully remove the cookie sheet, and with a pot holder pick up the glass and wipe out any residual warm wax with a paper towel and then wash with soap and water.
Can you use the wax as a lotion?
Yes, we have found the melted coconut oil, beeswax and essential oil combination to be an excellent cuticle cream and lip balm!
Candle Burning & Usage
What is the burn time?
You can expect to get 30-40 hrs of total burn time out of your wellness candle.
Why do you suggest lighting for 3 hours on first use?
We call this the "initial burn", it helps set the stage for the life of the candle. The size of the wax pool on the initial burn will pretty much be the opening from there on out. Let the candle burn until the entire top is almost liquid wax. After the initial burn it is best to let the candle burn for long stretches, this is the best way to get the most out of your candle.
What if my wick smokes?
We use a natural cotton "ECO" wick that is shelf trimming. If for some reason it "mushrooms" or doesn't self-trim, simply trim it to ¼ of an inch before lighting again.
