the festival of (eco-friendly) lights

Celebrating Hanukkah this year? Break out the menorah and be sure to light up responsibly with beeswax candles. As I've mentioned before, beeswax is healthier for you, better for the planet, and helps the imperiled bees. Paraffin wax is petroleum derived and polluting, and some conventional candles have lead in their wicks.

Here are a few options:

Big Dipper Wax Works Hanukkah Candles
45 hand-dipped tapers burn for 75 minutes each.

Natural Beeswax Hanukkah Candles
Go au natural with these lovely honeycomb beeswax candles.

Chanukah Hannukah Festive Beeswax Candles
Or get more festive and go for a rainbow of candle colors.

Get the kiddles together and have a menorah candle making party.
