You do realise that 'bees-wax' candles may only contain a minor percentage of real beeswax. Not sure what the acceptable figure actually is but may be as low as 25-30%! Beekeepers' beeswax candles should be 100% proper wax from bees! Mine are.

Trading Standards would be able to advise, I would think.
