All of these fantastic candles are available singly or in this huge extra special set. Watching the bottlenecks pool up with hot wax and hollow out is show not to be missed. Every candle is constantly reinventing it's look as it slowly transforms into melting Salvador Dalí-like creations. They're cute - but don't be afraid to burn them! Made from 100% raw beeswax and not supplemented with cheap, toxic fillers such as paraffin. pollenArts work directly with the beekeepers, and due to the mild cleaning of this wax, the end product smells extra sweet! This collection is made up of a diverse array of shapes and sizes: medicine bottles, creams, tinctures, extracts, poison, first aid, old shear-top hand-blown inkwells, and much more.
