Product Details

These long burning, traditional pillars from Big Dipper Wax Works bring a simple elegance to all occasions. The 100% beeswax pillars are individually hand-poured in small batches. All-natural, and free of paraffin and other toxins, these pillars burn clean and soot free, with a steady, healthy sized flame that radiates a spectrum of light that matches that of the sun. Beeswax, the purest of all candle waxes, is a product of the sustainable industry of beekeeping. The simple filtration of beeswax is a natural process that uses no chemicals and very little energy. The wicks are made from 100% cotton and contain no lead or metal. Enjoy the natural, sweet, honey fragrance infused straight from the hive into the wax!

Available in three sizes:
2 x 4.75 inch pillars burn for 40 hours
3 x 3.5 inch pillars burn for 60 hours
3 x 6 inch pillars burn for 90 hours

Tips to get the most out of your beeswax pillars:

  • Pillars should be burned on a pillar plate in order to avoid wax spillage and heat damage.
  • The initial burn should be several hours long in order to establish a wide burn pool.
  • Ideally, each burn should last at least one hour per inch in diameter.
  • To counter tunneling (when the wax pool doesn't expand to the outer edge of the candle and tunnels down the middle, not making use of all the wax), gently push walls in toward the flame once they have warmed up.
  • Keep wick trimmed to ¼ inch, making sure to cut immediately after burning, as wicks become brittle when cool. 
  • To minimize smoke when extinguishing, dunk wick into wax pool and stand it back up once extinguished.
