Nothing beats the flicker of candles at a table for creating a warm and soothing environment. For this reason, votive candles are often used as a part of wedding table centerpieces.
The most commonly available candles are made of paraffin, a (non-renewable) petroleum product that creates indoor pollution. An eco-friendly alternative is to use beeswax candles. Beeswax is a renewable product, and beeswax candles burn much longer than paraffin candles.
Recently, I came across the Chicago Honey Co-op‘s beeswax candles. The Chicago Honey Co-op not only raises bees sustainably, but also provides job training for people getting back on their feet. I am now offering these locally produced and chemical free candles to couples looking to green up their weddings!
