Our hypo-allergenic votive candles are hand made with 100% pure, lightly filtered beeswax from Punch Honeybee hives. With lead free cotton wicks, our votives burn soot and smoke free up to 9 hours while emitting a natural, light honey aroma. They will burn until the wax is completely gone. This candle is natural beeswax and color may vary from white, to yellow, to brown. Safety Precautions: Trim wick to ¼” before use. Never leave a burning candle unattended and always burn on a stable heat resistant surface. For longer burn times, keep away from drafts. Avoid touching or moving the candle while it is burning or if the wax is still hot. Keep out of reach of children. If you are burning a votive candle, put a teaspoon of water or coarse salt in the bottom of the Votive cup before placing the votive in it.
