We source our beeswax from a local bee farm in Northern Wisconsin. The unfiltered beeswax is picked up from the bee farm by a woman who is very knowledgeable about bee keeping and even has a few hives of her own as a hobby and for the tasty honey. She runs our wax through 3-4 filters, making it pure, clean, and ready to be melted down into candles. When we pick up our wax from her, it comes in beautiful golden, sweet smelling blocks. Yes, we could just buy in bulk online, but we prefer to get our beeswax straight from a source we know and trust. We know our beeswax has been cared for by people who love bee keeping so we are confident that it is 100% pure with no additives. We are so grateful we can pass on this incredible beeswax to you in our Welch Candle Company candles.
Our company is family run so we love to support others who also own family businesses. Most beeswax you find online or in a store does not perform the same way as the beeswax we use in our candles. Trust us, we've tried a lot! Others don’t smell as good as ours does and tunnels when burned. Our beeswax smells like heavenly honey, purifies the air of toxins, pollutants, and allergens, and burns amazingly well! Not only is our beeswax amongst the purest wax out there, but our wicks are also completely free of lead, zinc, and heavy metals. They are made from organic cotton so you know from start to finish your Welch Candle Company candle is 100% nontoxic.
