Flowering on Beeswax Candles: A Natural Beauty

Have you ever wondered about the white coating that sometimes appears on your beeswax candles? This is called 'blooming', a natural phenomenon that is not only common, but also a sign of the high quality of the candles. In this blog post from, we will explore what blooming actually is, why it happens, and how you can handle it to keep your beeswax candles in top condition.

What Is Flowering?

Flowering occurs when the natural oils in the beeswax crystallize on the surface. This creates a white, frosted appearance that is completely natural and often desired by connoisseurs of beeswax candles. It is important to understand that blooming does not in any way reduce the quality or burning properties of the candle.

Handling of Flowering

  • Rub the Candle Carefully: Use a soft cloth or the palm of your hand to rub the candle lightly. The heat from your hands helps melt the white layer and restore the candle's natural color.
  • Using a Hair Dryer: A hair dryer on a low setting can gently heat and melt the outer layer, effectively removing the bloom.
  • Proper Storage: To reduce the chance of blooming, store your candles in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

Flowering: A Sign of Quality

Interestingly, many people prefer flowering on their beeswax candles. It gives the light a unique and antique quality, which is particularly attractive to those who value the natural and honest nature of beeswax candles. Flowering is therefore not only a sign of purity and quality, but also of a kind of rustic beauty.


Flowering on beeswax candles is a fascinating and beautiful phenomenon that testifies to the candles' pure and natural origin. By understanding and managing bloom correctly, you can enjoy your beeswax candles even longer.
