Solid Rolled vs. Poured Pillars
Most natural beeswax pillars are poured solid. They almost always have difficulty burning because the particulate in raw, unfiltered beeswax clogs the wick, resulting in a weak flame and tunneling. Our pillars have none of these problems because of the ultra thin layers of air between our solid beeswax sheets which lends more oxygen to the burn equation, thus creating a perfect burn.

Bluecorn Naturals is the only company in the United States rolling solid pillars using Raw Natural Beeswax.

What is the difference between solid beeswax and honeycomb?
Often, when folks think about beeswax, they think about "honeycomb" beeswax. We are out to change this. Honeycomb candles are made from a solid sheet of beeswax that has been "pressed" with a honeycomb imprint. They are then rolled up to make a candle. They burn much faster because they are mostly air.

Our candles are rolled from a solid sheet of beeswax and that is why they have "ridiculously long burn times".

What kind of wicks do you use?
We use 100% cotton wicks that are metal free. The thicker wick we use is one of the ingredients that make our candles burn so beautifully. It allows more wax to be burned at a time, thus keeping the pool from rising up, eating the wick and dripping. You will never have to dig out a wick or pour off wax again! We recommend keeping the wick trimmed to 1/4" even while burning! This will keep a long, curled wick from burning one edge unevenly, another cause of dripping.

Are there any chemicals in your candles?
Our raw natural beeswax has not been filtered, bleached or dyed. Our colored beeswax is a highly filtered beeswax that has not been bleached and contains aniline dyes. For our most sensitive customers, we recommend the raw, natural beeswax candles. See more details on products such as our Pillars, Hand-Dipped Tapers, Votives & Tea-Lites, or our essential oil based Soy Wax Candles.

What is "raw" or "natural" beeswax?
Raw or natural beeswax is beeswax that has not been filtered, bleached, or dyed. Raw beeswax is scented by honey and colored by pollen. This is why the color of raw beeswax may vary depending on what flowers the bees are pollinating.

Most beeswax on the market today, including the popular "honeycomb" beeswax, has been highly filtered and sometimes even bleached.

What are the health benefits of burning beeswax?
In-home air quality has become one of the most important issues to the health conscious consumer. Paraffin candles, which are petroleum based wax, burn sooty, blacken your walls and ceilings and are known to be toxic.

Beeswax, on the other hand, has a totally clean non toxic burn. Furthermore, beeswax is a fuel that, when burned, emits negative ions. Like a rain storm, which is a negatively charged event, burning beeswax will clean the air. This happens when negative ions attach to positively charged ions that are holding dust, molds and other contaminants airborne. This attachment weights the positive ions and drops both the positive ions and the contaminants to the ground surface to be swept up and vacuumed.
