That, in combination with the special fragrances added during process, creates unexpected and unique candle aromas. The selection of our beloved fragrances is inspired by Mediterranean nature, herbs, fruit and blooms.

Beeswax is a completely natural wax produced by honeybees - it is the substance that forms the structure of a honeycomb. The bees secrete wax to build the honeycomb cells in which their young are raised, and their honey is stored. To produce wax, the bees must consume about eight times their mass in honey!
Composition of Beeswax
Beeswax contains a natural protective substance called propolis. It is made by bees using tree resin, wax and pollen to protect the beehive. The name propolis comes from the Greek meaning "defence of the city". It is very resistant at room temperature and can be stored for hundreds of years without any changes to its properties.
Beeswax is a complex substance that is composed of more than 300 different ingredients. This gives it a chemical composition too complicated to be artificially recreated. The main chemical elements that compose it are oxygen, hydrogen, and carbon but also it contains about 15 different chemical compounds of fatty acids, esters and saturated hydrocarbons, most of them highly beneficial to the human biosystem. The composition and color may vary depending on the colony's special features or specific environmental conditions.
