Years in the making, our new proprietary all vegetable apricot wax is an exciting new innovation. Bluewick fragrance collections are exclusively poured with this high end, clean burning wax. Extracted from the apricot kernel, this precious oil, when refined, creates the cleanest palate to blend intricate fragrance. The extraction process, although very sophisticated, is quite simple. The oil retrieved from cold pressing the apricot kernel is transformed into a solid wax form through complicated cycles of hydrogenation. The result is a candle product that burns up to 80% cleaner than a 100% soy wax candle - with significant reductions in smoke and soot. Even better, candles made from our apricot wax have greater fragrance load and enhanced permeation. Above all, our new wax continues to promote our Be Green initiative which dedicates our manufacturing to eco-forward philosophies and practices. We invite you to Be Green with your own initiatives and make a difference.
