Why spoil your birthday cake with unnatural common birthday candles. These little cuties are 100% pure and natural beeswax candles that you can even eat- made of nothing but beeswax derived strictly from honey and bees' enzymes. Pure beeswax birthday candles are made from 100% natural beeswax and cotton wick. From the maker: We don't use any synthetic wax just what bees produce. Nor do we use any additives (be it oil, fragrance or bleach). Colour is natural and may vary as beeswax from each part of a hive has its own and unique smell and colour.
