At Helix Candle Luminaries, we are committed to taking care of our environment. In fact, environmental concerns about packaging were the motivating factor in the design of our Spiral Melt candle packaging.
We make our products—Spiral Melt candles, votives, pillar candles, tea light candles, and oversize candles—with 100% natural beeswax. Our caps are made of 100% recycled aluminum, which is produced with only 5% of the energy required for making new aluminum. And we use only recycled paper in our candle lids.
Beeswax is a natural product used in the honeycomb cells of honeybee hives. Because bees produce 80% more wax than they need, we can harvest it without harm to the bees. Beeswax is white at first. Depending on the flowers the bees visit to extract pollen, the colour of the wax can vary from pale to deep golden hues.
Beeswax has a sweet, pleasant scent. Candles made from 100% beeswax have a clean, hot and bright flame. They have well-documented anti-allergic properties and help remove toxins and impurities from the air, including dust, mold spores, odours, and pollen.
