Color is a tricky thing, and coloring natural beeswax with absolute formulaic consistency is plain impossible.

The natural color of beeswax varies, as does honey, from almost white to brown, depending on the source flowers of the pollens the bees collect.


Our colors named Natural Ivory, Natural Yellow and Natural Gold do not contain any added pigments or dyes.

The Natural Ivory is lightened using diatomaceous earth and activated carbon to remove the pollens and propolis that lend color - but no chemicals, no bleaching, is used. The gold is always raw, unfiltered, and contains more pollens, propolis and other fine debris which may cause it to burn more slowly. Natural Yellow is filtered to remove fine, dark particles and reveal the light color.

The other colors are achieved with candle wax dyes. We are still endeavoring to switch to all-natural dyes - our eventual goal, but we can't find a reliable source.  Know of one? - please contact us.

We get pretty close with the colors, but there will often be a small, discernable difference in each new color batch. We have chosen a selective palette and we hope you can find here what you need. 

The chart below is a guide, but every computer monitor is different. What we see here and what you see there will be a little different.  So please take what you see here to be approximate.
