Apis Cera

Bougies Ambroise - Box of 2 Beeswax Pillar Candles

400,00 kr

Ambroise is handcrafted by using a mold made by Apis Cera. It is a poured candle with a honeycomb pattern on the outside.

The candles come in a beautiful custom-made box and are delicately wrapped in bee-printed silk paper and closed with Apis Cera's trademark seal.

This candle is called Ambroise in reference to Saint Ambrose (c. 340 - 397), archbishop of Milan, known to be the protector of beekeepers.
