The Chittering Candle Co. have expanded their range to hand poured candles. These hand poured citronella beeswax candles in recycled candle jars will not only create the perfect ambience to any room or patio with their beautiful glow and natural honey scent, the addition of the citronella oil will also keep those pesky mozzies at bay. Beeswax Candles also burn brightly without leaving a dripping, toxic mess. These candles have an amazing burn time of approximately 100 hours!

The Chittering Candle Co. only use West Australian Beeswax. Naturally scented with honey and floral nectar, these Candles contain no artificial scents and emit negative ions to purify, cleanse and improve air quality. With the highest melting point of all known waxes, WA Beeswax Candles give a burn time up to 5 times longer than alternatives and burn very cleanly with little smoke when wicks are properly trimmed. The little that remains at the candle’s end of life is fully compostable. 

While they may be more expensive than supermarket alternatives, the environmental and health benefits, and extended burn time of these Beeswax Candles makes them the obvious choice for the eco-friendly home.

Western Australian honeybee colonies are among the last populations in the world to remain unaffected by pests and diseases like the small hive beetle and varroa mite. WA beeswax is free from nasties like oxalic acid residue, pesticides and antibiotics. The absence of disease and chemicals make WA beeswax one of the purest in the world.

Why Choose Beeswax Candles?

Most commercially produced candles are made with paraffin wax, which is derived from petroleum oil and may produce harmful byproducts when burned or melted. Paraffin is not particularly eco-friendly and has been known to have adverse effects on our respiratory systems. 

Soy-based candles can come with their own problems too. Most soy is grown from genetically modified beans with extensive use of chemicals and pesticides, and these may remain present after processing. Most soy candles also include palm oil.

Western Australian Beeswax is:

  • environmentally friendly, safe and non-toxic
  • burns exceptionally clean with little smoke when trimmed properly, as it is not an oil-based product.
  • 100% natural and biodegradable, and undergoes no chemical processing
  • the only candle wax that emits negative ions to purify, cleanse and improve air quality
  • beautifully and naturally scented by honey and floral nectar in the honeycomb
  • hypo-allergenic and beneficial to those with environmental allergies, sensitivities and asthma
  • a renewable fuel
  • free from toxic Toluene and Benzene fume emissions, unlike some paraffin waxes

Safety and Candle Care

  • Extinguish all candle/s when leaving a room and/or before going to sleep. Always keep a burning candle within sight.

  • Never burn a candle on or near anything that can catch fire or is flammable such as bedding, curtains, carpet, paper, etc...

  • Keep candles out of reach of children and pets.

  • Do not place lit candles where they could be knocked over.

  • All candle wicks new or burned should maintain a wick of ≈ 0.6cm - 6mm before lighting.

  • Keep burning candles away from drafts, ceiling fans, air-conditioning & vents. This will impact the performance of your candle and can cause the candle to drip.

  • Candles should be positioned in a candle holder which is flat and level.

  • Always burn candles in a well-ventilated room.

  • Discontinue burning a candle when 1cm of wax remains. Beeswax is compostable so can put into the garden or mulch pile.

  • Never move a burning candle when the wax is liquid as this could impact the performance of the candle.

  • Never move a burning candle when the wax is liquid as this could burn unprotected skin if spilled.

  • Place burning candles at least 7.5cm apart from another. If too close the candles can impact each others performance.

  • Use a candle snuffer to extinguish, never blow candle out as it will smoulder producing smoke and soot.

  • Never extinguish candles with water.

  • If your candle is flickering repeatedly, smoking, or the flame becomes too high, extinguish the affected candle. Let the candle cool, trim wick to correct length (0.6cm - 6mm), check for drafts, then re-light and monitor.

The Chittering Candle Company 

The Chittering Candle Co. is the brainchild of the multi-talented Rocket (aka Rodney) who, together with his family, left the hustle and bustle of Perth for the delights of the Chittering Valley in an effort to find a balance between Nature and the modern world. On discovering that most candles are made abroad using highly processed methods with the addition of chemicals and synthetic perfumes, they were inspired to use sustainable methods to create healthier, better quality candles themselves. They have now branched out adding more sustainable Beeswax products to their range such as lip balms, and wood furniture polish.

Not only is Rocket an expert candle maker - he has recently created the gorgeous new shelving and display units you'll see when you next visit us at Urban Revolution. Rocket's work has changed our lives and made a visit to our store an even greater experience for our customers. We can't wait to see what he'll come up with next!
