Hemp is a healthier and eco friendly material with an extensive variety of uses and benefits. Hemp planting reduces deforestation and improves the soil upon which it is grown. Hemp is one of most useful and oldest known cultivated crops. The beeswax also acts as a fuel, keeping the wick burning hot, slow and steady. Without the beeswax, the wick’s flame size would be uncontrollable and would burn out too quickly. We use this in the shop and appreciate the flavor and health benefits over butane any day!
