100% Pure Beeswax. Aurum Naturals beeswax candles are made entirely of pure beeswax using 100% natural cotton wicks and are handmade right here in Michigan. No other wax material is added. All of the beeswax is sourced from beekeepers in Michigan and Wisconsin, whose hives are surrounded by unfertilized and unsprayed wildflower fields. Pure beeswax produces a brighter, stronger flame that lasts five times longer than parafin, without releasing any toxins into the air. Beewax is extracted from cappings which are produced by worker bees neat the top of the hive, without disturbing the queen bee deeper in the hive. The high-quality capping wax imparts a golden-yellow color and a naturally sweet honey aroma.
