What is a luminary?
Green Beeswax Luminaries are thin walled, translucent, wax "bowls" handmade from 100% pure beeswax in unique and striking colours. They are beautiful by day and stunning at night.
When you place a tealight candle in the luminary at night the colours come to life. The luminary itself will not melt - it will last indefinitely.
Here at Wairua Wood and Wax we only use 100% NZ beeswax from our own beehives, vegetable based dyes and 100% cotton wicks.
Each Luminary is Unique:
Each beeswax luminary is created by hand, made with a lot of love and based on years of hard-won experience. We dip each luminary into a wax bath and finish the process using beautiful natural coloured dyes which gives each luminary a unique colour and "pattern". Each luminary is a completely unique artistic piece. It is a one of a kind that can never be repeated.
Why is Beeswax So Good?
Beeswax is the longest and cleanest burning wax. Because of this it helps to purify the air and gives off a wonderful evocative honey scent, even when it’s not burning! Also, beeswax is environmentally friendly and completely sustainable.
Your luminary comes with 2 beeswax tealights (that will each burn for about 3 hours), a piece of insulating cork and care instructions.
- Large Luminaries diameter approx. 165 mm and the height is approx. 120 mm.
- Medium Luminaries diameter approx. 135 mm and the height is approx. 80 mm.
- Small Luminaries diameter of approx. 100 mm and the height is approx. 80 mm.
