Candle Wax Info

What is the origin of Arbutus' candle wax and are there any harmful ingredients used in the making of the beeswax or soy wax candles?


Beeswax is a beautiful, unprocessed, natural wax. It is created by honey bees for the preparation of honeycomb, and has a long history of use by humans for many purposes. Beeswax candles radiate warm light and exude a lovely, honey aroma. Beeswax candles burn for a long time, providing hours of enjoyment. Beeswax varies somewhat in colour and aroma, so every beeswax candle is a one-of-a-kind work of art.

Arbutus Beeswax is collected in Alberta and British Columbia, Canada.  We use only 100% pure beeswax, free of additives.


Soy Wax

  • Biodegradable, environmentally friendly.

  • Does not contain any herbicides or pesticides.

  • Spilled wax cleans up with soap and water.

  • Non-GMO, supports non-GMO soybean farmers.

  • Burns longer than most waxes

  • Lower melting temperature reduces risk of burns due to melted wax.


Arbutus Soy Wax

is made from North American, pesticide-free, non-GMO soy beans grown for the purpose of creating wax.  It is an all natural product, free of additives.
