Why are my beeswax candles turning white?
Only 100% pure beeswax candles will "bloom". It is a whitish film that starts as a light coat and gets heavier over time, giving the candle a frosty appearance.
Many beeswax candle lovers are happy to see bloom form because they're assured that it is authentic. But if you prefer your candles looking polished and new, don't worry, here are some tips on how to remove it:
1. Warm the candle with the heat from your hands and rub it with a soft, lint free cloth (pantyhose works very well)
2. Lightly blow on your beeswax candles with a hair dryer
Bloom will reappear eventually but you can always restore the candles back to their original sheen using the methods above.
