Why we don't use paraffinWhy we don't use paraffin

As a toxic product, paraffin is shipped to the candle factory with a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS). Concerningly, the MSDS says that when handling paraffin (and this is while it is in an ‘inert’ –unlit – form) you need to wear gloves, a lab coat, goggles and a respirator!

Jam Jar tealight refills - 10 refill candlesJam Jar tealight refills - 10 refill candles
Pure beeswax refill candles for Jam Jar tealight candles.

Got the pack of Jam Jar tealights and now just needing more beeswax tealight candle goodness to refill the jars?... this is the one for you.

Each pack contains 10 x Jam Jar tealight refill candles.

Burn time: 4 - 5 hours each

These candles must be used in the specific size of jam jar sold in the Jam Jar tealight pack.  No bigger.  No smaller.

Our Jam Jar Tealights are used to light the Greenhouse by Joost enviro-restaurants.

Each tealight contains around 6,000 scales of wax made by bees... the work of around 1,000 bees in each tea light.

If you are looking for a completely natural tealight candle that burns clean and long, this is the one for you.  Perfect for oil burners or long parties!

Queen B's 100% pure beeswax tealights burn without smoking.

To reuse the glass jars, simply flick out the metal sustainer and pop in a new tealight.  To clean the jars use hot, soapy water.

NOTE: Tealight candles (ours or any others) are designed to be burned in a single sitting (it's a complex relationship between the size of the wick and the size of the candle and the wick needing enough time to burn out to the edge of the cup - to consume all of the wax - before it burns down to the base of the holder).  Please take this into account when using your jam jar tealights.
