Apis Cera: French pure beeswax candles

I’ve been following Apis Cera on Instagram for such a long time, I can’t even remember how I discovered these outstanding French candles. Apis Cera candles are the haute couture of candles, I’m sure you will agree after these lines. 

French candles in pure beeswax

Charles created Apis Cera with the ambition of restoring candles to their former glory. He established his workshop in the heart of Provence and produces candles, soap, and lip balm in pure beeswax. All Apis Cera products are handmade, in accordance with traditional techniques.

A lot of research, great care and patience in mastering the traditions led Charles to launch Apis Cera. It takes one to two years to create a perfect product before launching.

The natural beeswax is the starting point of all Apis Cera candles. This is the first big difference with standard candles. Did you know that most candles are made with paraffin, a derivative from coal, petroleum, or oil shale?

In addition to a delicate smell, beeswax has amazing properties: it doesn’t smoke, it creates a brighter flame (the same color spectrum as sunlight!), and it cleanses the air. Nature is incredible, right?

Each candle is an absolute beauty: well-made organic shapes, unique textures pleasant to the touch and luxurious packaging. Definitely haute couture candles.


Handmade candles from Provence

Let’s discover now more about the Lucienne candles, whose name was given regarding the Latin word for Light. This exclusive Apis Cera creation is made by rolling a sheet of beeswax around a wax-dipped cotton wick. A specific technique to keep the honeycomb pattern. The candles are then thoughtfully wrapped in a delicate silk paper. For a vintage look, combine these exquisite candles with the vintage candlestick. Top-notch combo for your home!

The Ambroise candles also have a honeycomb pattern but are made with a different technique. They are handmade in a custom mold where the beeswax is poured. These pillar candles in pure beeswax are a great decor in your home! To protect them, they come in a luxury box and are thoughtfully wrapped in a delicate silk paper.
