Beeswax Tealight Candles
Our Beeswax Tealight Candles are unscented, natural and filtered. These candles are made locally and hand-poured especially for Artisan Aromatics. The wicks have no lead. These are 100% pure and natural beeswax tealight candles.
Simply fill the diffuser’s bowl with water, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil and then light the natural tealight candle which sits beneath the bowl. The heat warms the water and diffuses the essential oil’s aroma.
Beeswax can be found in aromatherapy products such as lip balms, butters and lotions and is a natural product of the honey bee (genus Apis).
Paraffin wax candles can be bad for your health. While unscented, all natural beeswax tealight candles can be good for health and heart. And they last several times longer than petroleum based paraffin candles.

Beeswax is also great for making salves:
Gently heat in double broiler along with coconut oil 76 degree (careful, beeswax & coconut oil are flammable) – not too hot – just enough to slowly melt the beeswax. A ratio of 1 part beeswax to 5 parts coconut oil makes a semihard salve. Lower heat and add essential oil at very last stage and at the lowest temperature so the essential oils won’t evaporate too quickly. Pour into containers, cap and allow to cool.
