Ukrainian Easter Egg Candles
All our Beeswax Candles are 100% natural beeswax and homemade. This design reminds us of the Ukrainian Easter Egg. Image of Ukrainian Easter Egg. Rather than painted, the candle design is carved into the mold. When poured, the wax candle becomes a beautiful decoration for the Spring season! Purified beeswax burns smoothly. A light glaze finish is sprayed on most candles to enhance the design. The quality of the burn or the benefit of air purification is not affected. Our natural beeswax candles are air purifiers by nature and are far superior to paraffin candles when it comes to health benefits!
The Ukrainian East Egg Candle comes in pastels of Blue, Green, Red, White and Yellow. New wax is very pale, almost white. This wax is typically obtained from the “wax cappings” . This is obtained when beekeepers decide to replace the old honeycomb. The natural brown color is seen in our Emergency Candle. The Ukrainian Easter Egg Candle originally are white with Color Wax chips added. When I prepare the wax for pouring colored candles, I use diamond color chips from Mann Lake, Ltd. a beekeeping supply company. There is no exact science to getting consistent color in the candles! My rule of thumb is that I generally use less color in the spring and early summer, more color in the late summer through winter. That being said, it is good to keep in mind that your colored natural beeswax candle will probably not match exactly as depicted here.
Natural Beeswax candles alone give such a light, pleasant scent that we do not add any artificial fragrances. Miel’s candles are hypo-allergenic and can be burned around those with allergies, asthma, or those who are sensitive to chemicals. However, there is no guarantee that an allergic reaction would occur.
