Featuring 100% pure, Canadian cappings beeswax, Cheeky Bee offers a complete line of handmade, solid, beeswax candles including their beautiful and rustic signature dripped candles, their traditional and classic smooth pillars, dripless, hand dipped tapers and their hand poured votives, tealites and utility/travel can candles.
Started in 1999, Cheeky Bee grew out of the search for a natural alternative to chemical based, toxic candles. After learning about the purity and utility that defines beeswax, they started making candles that would inspire, as art, but also amaze, as in, "Can it be true? Do beeswax candles really burn completely clean? Cost less than paraffin candles? Is the flame really different?" Yes, yes, yes. The question one should ask themselves is: "Why has it taken me so long to start burning beeswax candles?"
Although we they do not maintain their own hives, at Cheeky Bee they have established long term, mutually beneficial relationships with local, ethical and environmentally aware, beekeepers. By supporting local farmers, it guarantees them a constant supply of the finest 100% pure beeswax in the world as well as ensuring a fair price for the people who make it all happen. Bees are crucial for the survival of mankind, and the beekeepers are crucial for the bees. It is this positive synergy that makes what they do so rewarding.
Painstakingly hand crafted in Ontario, Canada, at Cheeky Bee they still, stubbornly, use the timeless methods that chandlers have used over the last 4000 years. Each candle is hand poured, hand dripped, hand dipped and hand finished. In fact, they are proud of the fact that their small "factory" is devoid of any plugged in equipment. In an age of computers and machinery, this may not be fiscally prudent, but it is true to the ancient craft. They didn't "inherit their knowledge" from their grandmothers, and they didn't stumble on it from ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs; they are first generation candle makers who, through hard work, dedication, and an innate appreciation for what they do, are able to offer you the longest lasting, cleanest burning, sweetest smelling, all natural, 100% pure, beeswax candles on Earth.
