Beeswax Candles by Ricau’s Bee Company
Ricau’s Bee Company is a mom and pop shop in Slidell, LA that handles all things BEE! They process their honey for their local farmers market, they make beeswax candles and other related products. When we asked them to make candles for our Crusade Channel Gift boxes this Christmas, they were ecstatic and couldn’t wait to share their vocation with our Crusade Family! These tapered candles were such a hit in the gift boxes we decided to add them permanently to the Catholic Corner.
Candle Specs: One order = 2 – 10″ taper candles (these candles are sold in pairs, not singles)
NOTE: if you place an order for ONE unit, you will receive 2, 10″ taper candles.
From the owner of Ricau’s Bee Co, Richard & Wanda Ricau – Our candles are 100% beeswax and made with love from our bees. When 100% beeswax burns, it is consumed by the fire of the flame, so it burns dripless, if kept from the draft. It burns clean and actually emits negative ions that clean the air. You might notice a ‘whitish’ deposit forming on your candles over time. This is called “bloom”. It is the action of the natural minerals rising to the candle surface. If a shinier surface is preferred, simply wipe the bloom off with a lint free cloth (nylon hosiery is perfect) or carefully warm it for a few seconds with a hair dryer. Beeswax is marvelously complex. Man, using the most advanced technology, has never been able to reproduce it in the laboratory. The wax is a glandular secretion of the worker bee with which she builds her combs. It is also a storage place for honey and pollen, and it is where the young are raised. Do not store in heat. We enjoyed making these especially for you Crusaders!
