HOHEPA - Bell Candle
The Hohepa candles are made by a dedicated and hardworking team which creates all the candles with love, care and expertise. Some people have been participating in the Hōhepa Candle Workshop for about 30 years, others have started since we moved to Napier.
Hohepa is producing a natural product out of 100% locally sourced Beeswax from Takapau Kintail Honey – who have supported them for many years. They developed an almost zero-waste work-process. All the wick off-cuts and wax leftovers are turned into fire-lighters.
Since 2019 they offer wax collection points for the public as an alternative of throwing wax in the rubbish. Sustainability is a core value at Hōhepa and they are proud to do their bit in promoting sustainability and environmental friendly living at work.
The candles are made to be lit! Beeswax is purifying and detoxifying for the air.
