Before the Victorian Era bees were kept in straw skeps.  Skeps are essentially upturned straw baskets under which the bees form their naturally curvy honey comb. Modern hives have replaced these iconic symbols of beekeeping.


Our small traditional skep candle is solid, handmade with 100% pure New Zealand beeswax and a genuine square braid cotton wick in the beautiful Bay of Plenty.  Perfect for wedding favours, hostess gifts and nature lovers alike.

Pure beeswax small skep candle

  • Our beautiful beeswax candles are completely natural and chemical free. Their honeyed scent comes from the pollen and nectar from hundreds of different wildflowers the bees visit.  Pure 100% beeswax candles have long been known as a natural air purifier and their negative ion effect can improve our mood, energy and health.  They can be beneficial to those with environmental allergies, sensitivities and asthma.
