Rehilete Candle in Birthday Cake


Made by a family of artisans in Mexico City, the beautiful rehilete candle upholds the region’s traditions and economies through its use of melipona wax. Produced by Mayan “stingless” bees that are found in the Yucatan peninsula, this wax is revered for its durability, vivacious color and healing properties, imbuing it with a rich history for its use in local rituals. In using this resource, not only does the rehilete pay homage to its lineage with detailed and whimsical design, but it also supports the local ecology, as pollinating bees from surrounding jungles are protected and cultivated to balance the effects of production.
