Beeswax Tealight Candles - Classic Bulk Packs
Sorry, we're currently out of our classic size tealights - check out our MAXI TEALIGHTS instead - same diameter, but taller for a longer burn.
Enjoy our classic beeswax tealight candles made from 100% pure New Zealand beeswax.
These tealights are the standard tealight size to fit your holder or wax melter.
Choose from our beautifully packaged boxes of six which are perfect for gifts, or our plain boxes now available in a range of pack sizes. For our true candle addicts, we even have a pack of 365 so you can enjoy warm, honey-scented candlelight every day of the year (we'll even throw in an extra candle on leap years).
Perfect fuel for your wax melt warmer, or enjoy for their own subtle honey scent and soft light.
Wonderful used in mass displays as accents for weddings and events where they add hours of warm, gentle light and atmosphere.
Important: tealights are supplied in reusable and recyclable aluminium cups. You can transfer into your own tealight holders but please be aware that tealights MUST be burnt in a close-fitting cup, as they are designed to fully liquify when burning. If the candle cup does not fit closely, wax will run away from the wick and the candle will burn out.

Delivery Costs and Timelines
$7 within urban areas, $9 to rural areas. (2-3 working days after dispatch) Free delivery on orders over $100.
We currently send via Courierpost.
Australia & Rest of World:
Sadly, due to rising costs of international delivery and extended delivery delays, as of 3 November 2020 we have removed our international shipping option.
We hope to resume international deliveries when the situation improves, but for now we believe this is our only option to avoid disappointment to customers.
International Orders and Bee Products
Different countries have different rules around importation of natural products, and it's common for beeswax not to be allowed in order to protect the health of their local bees. We get it. After all, Kev and I (Dee) are beekeepers, first and foremost.
HOWEVER, we have very tight biosecurity and good bee health here in New Zealand, and as many of our products are a blend of beeswax, tree resin and other oils, there is no risk they will ever end up being used directly in a beehive, as a block of pure beeswax might.
Therefore we've had no problem with border restrictions, and as at the date of writing this, our products have been sent without problem to Australia, the US, Canada, the UK, and a dozen other countries .
Some countries may have various border or import charges - please note that you will be responsible for any such charges.
Route Shipping Insurance
At checkout you'll see the option to purchase Route shipping insurance on your order.
It's usually a very small cost, and Route is underwritten by Lloyds of London, so you can trust them to pay for a replacement for your order if it is lost for any reason.
We don't think this insurance is really necessary in New Zealand, so feel free to untick if you like, but we highly recommend it for international orders, as these travel via untracked airmail (tracked is about four times the price!).
What about packaging? Do you use plastic?
We're committed to eliminating plastic wherever we can - the clear bags our kits are packaged in are NOT plastic. They are genuine cellophane, made from vegetable cellulose and are fully biodegradable and home compostable.
And we're very happy to announce that the black courier bags we use are also NOT plastic! They are made from plants (mostly corn I believe), and are fully biodegradable, and home compostable. And, a little oddly, they smell like fresh toast, or maybe popcorn!
It's not just plastic we're about reducing though - You'll see on our naked DIY blocks you have the option to buy without packaging, and on every one of our ready-made wrap pages we encourage customers to let us know if they don't need individual packaging on the wraps.
All prices on this website are in New Zealand Dollars.
We offer the following payment options for your convenience:
We often light candles in our home and I’ve been on the lookout for a quality product for some time. Dee’s Bees met all the criteria and I’m thrilled with my purchase.
I really love these candles they burn nice and slowly and seem to give an even flame no matter the level of wax. I was however disappointed to paypostage and then wait 7 days after dispatch for them to arrive only to find that they come from just two streets away from my house. Perhaps a local drop of or pick up could be useful?
