As people around the world switch off their lights for Earth Hour, they often light candles. But those candles might not be as environmentally friendly an option as you might think, as most o the world's candles are made with either paraffin, soy or palm oil. Paraffin is made from petroleum, and soy oil undergoes a hydrogenation process that creates toxins that are burnt with the candle, while palm oil comes from plantations in South-East Asia that have taken land that used to be rainforests.
Beeswax has the highest melting point of any wax known to humankind. Whereas you will often find that paraffin candles drip or drown the wick, and soy or palm candles typically come in jars or have hardeners such as stearic acid added to the wax, a beeswax candle (when properly made) will not drown the wick and rarely drips.
A World of True Imagination… launching our Skull Candle from Cate Burton at 7:12pm on 9 December
Anyway, from the idea I then went into designing the form that our candle would take. A skull with vines intertwined around the head and deep, sunken eyes so that it could cry “beeswax tears” and to frame the flame (trying saying that 10 times fast with a glass of bubbles under your belt)! From there we went into mould making and then wick testing. About 3 months had passed by now.
