The white powder that develops on beeswax candles is called bloom. It only appears on candles made with pure beeswax. If you prefer to remove the white bloom, you can gently use low heat from a hair dryer, a cloth...or your hand. However, since our candles are made with pure beeswax, the bloom will return in a few days (or a few weeks). It’s just the nature of beeswax, and one way to be sure the candle contains pure beeswax.
We have a wonderful partnership with a family-owned box company to manufacture our boxes. They were custom-designed for Pellar Fox, and have passed extensive drop testing. The Box Material is guaranteed to come from sustainably managed forests. The tissue paper we wrap our beeswax candles in, is acid-free and printed with soy ink. Every time we place an order for our tissue paper, a tree is planted to contribute to reforestation.
Yes, we can! If you're interested in a custom order, we'd love to hear from you! Send us a message via our Contact Us page, and share details about the custom order you are requesting.

Our entire line is formulated without soy, parabens, dyes, petroleum, fragrance or phthalates. We’re pure beeswax, from start to finish.
Yes, it is! A pure beeswax candle is a beautiful light source...that helps clean the air! Similar to a Himalayan Salt Lamp, pure beeswax candles release negative ions that bond to the positively-charged ions polluting the air. The result is cleaner air! Your candle has effectively helped remove common allergens like dander and dust. Yay!
You sure can! Pellar Fox recognizes the importance of recycling glass. We purchase our glassware from an American company that focuses on being eco-friendly and environmentally safe. Not only can you recycle the glass, but you can reuse it! It’s a great vessel for a succulent or a small bouquet of flowers.
This doesn't always happen, but it's normal behavior for beeswax candles, especially if the room is cold. Beeswax shrinks as it cools, which will sometimes cause it to crack. We choose to avoid using additives, so this may happen from time to time. If your beeswax candle has cracked after you put it out, simply trim the wick and light it again as usual. It won't affect the performance, and the crack will fill in with the newly melted beeswax.

We recommend candle hugging for all of our beeswax pillars. This is a technique that helps the pillar maintain a consistent flame and consume all of the available beeswax. After you've extinguished the flame and the candle is still slightly warm, gently press the sides towards the center. Be careful not to press too far inward, or the wick may accidentally drown during the next burn.
We thought about this carefully before making this decision. In the end, we decided to make our tealights cupless and sustainable. They are meant to be used in your own heat safe tealight holder. Discarded tealight candle casings typically end up in landfills where they can remain for up to 1000 years. This is not something we wanted to contribute to.
