Why Abeille

Abeille has been created by Brett with the vision to bring masterfully crafted luxury beeswax candles into your homes. No stone has been unturned in his everlasting pursuit to create the perfect scented, eco-friendly, NZ Made, Beeswax candle.

Much like a bee hive the Abeille candle provides many added benefits to a home. Everything in a hive plays a critical part in the colony’s health, the wax plays some of the biggest roles to ensure the bees are healthy and calm. 

Enjoy the profound crackle of the Wood-Wick candle flame as it emits sweet but subtle honey like scents throughout your home.

Eco-Friendly Choice

Fused with native New Zealand Beeswax & a small blend of organic coconut oil from the Pacific Island, our product is a renewable source that not only sustains other communities but also burns brighter, longer and cleaner than other wax candles. 

In addition to supporting sustainable beekeeping, the consumption of beeswax candles is also good for the air we breathe. Unlike paraffin candles, which are made with a petroleum-based wax, beeswax candles have a completely clean non-toxic burn. 

Crafted by nature, perfected and delivered to your home

Harvested and hand crafted from the native lands of the lush South Island, New Zealand.

Abeille scented candles offers a luxurious, tranquil, calming experience only achieved through natural Beeswax.

This is thanks to the fact that Beeswax burns in the same light spectrum as the sun.

Our Beeswax Candles Ooze Quality

When purchasing a candle in NZ, deciding which to buy can be difficult - especially if you are unfamiliar with the advantages and disadvantages of each type. Speaking generally, beeswax candles will win the battle as they have a pleasing number of benefits. Purchasing from our range ensures the following:

Environmentally friendly

Our candles are produced from natural beeswax and have a small amount of added organic coconut oil from the Pacific Islands; ensuring every item is environmentally friendly and sustainable.

Ethically sourced

The beeswax used for our candles is obtained in a bee-friendly manner and is only the excess material that they don’t need themselves.

Long-lasting brightness

Beeswax crafted candles are scientifically proven to burn brighter and stronger and have a higher melting point than other materials for a longer lasting burn.

What is Beeswax?

You may be surprised to know that wax is made by bees that are less than 17 days old. The wax is composed of fatty acids, hydrocarbons, alcohol and traces of other substances and is secreted from glands that atrophy as the bee ages. When bees first start to secrete the wax, it is white in colour but gradually darkens and turns yellow. The darkness of the wax is determined by the flowers from which the nectar was taken.

To produce the wax, the young bees feed on the nectar that is stored within the colony. The bee takes around 24 hours to metabolize the nectar and turn it into a waxy substance which it then uses to repair the hive. Tiny moist scales of wax are secreted from the bee’s abdomen and the bee collects each flake as it emerges, chews it to soften it and then places it on the appropriate place in the honeycomb cell, before smoothing and polishing it.

Beeswax can vary in colour depending on the type of nectar the bee feeds on, but the colour is also determined by the quantities of pollen, oil and propolis within the wax. To make high-quality candles that will burn brightly and evenly, the wax needs to be pure and clean. That’s why our candles contain filtered beeswax.

It Couldn’t Be Easier To Look After Our Scented Candles Made From Beeswax

It’s really simple to take care of our products, they come in their own holder and if you take our advice, they will burn for many hours!

We really know our stuff when it comes to candles and have figured out a formula to ensure the longevity of your Abeille scented beeswax candles.

  • For your first time burn make sure you allow 4 hours, this will leave the most perfect burn pool so that your candle will continue to go down evenly.
  • Then for every other burn, make sure you trim the wick first, it will keep the wax consistent and prevent smoke and an irregular flicker.
  • Keep them away from kids and pets- the crackling sound and beautiful, glimmering glow are almost hypnotising to little beings.
  • Place the jar on a heat resistant surface away from anything flammable and within sight. Never leave your candle unattended for too long and remember to extinguish them before leaving or going to bed.
  • We recommend that after the first time lighting that you burn them for up to 5 hours at a time. This is for maximum use. Moreover, the sweet smells will continue to diffuse for a while after you blow out the light anyway!

If you follow these basic tips, you’ll have hours of endless fun, peace and amazing scents with your Abeille.
