Beeswax Luminaries are thin walled, translucent, coloured "bowls" handmade from 100% pure beeswax in striking colours. They are beautiful by day and stunning at night.
Light the tealight candle and watch the colours come to life. The luminary will not melt - it will last indefinitely. When you purchase one of our luminaries you are buying something completely unique. It is a one of a kind that can never be repeated.
What is a luminary?
Each of our luminaries is a thin walled, coloured translucent “bowl” made of pure beeswax.
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:
We make each yellow beeswax luminary by hand with a lot of love and based on years of hard won experience. Therefore, when you purchase one of our luminaries you are buying something completely unique: each luminary 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.
