Folklore has it that Rwanda is a country that has for centuries been flowing with milk and Honey. It is also known for the traditional Agaseke Peace Basket, a cultural symbol of peace and unity. This basket apparently inspires our creativity with beeswax, the ingredient from which Agaseke Candles is made from. It is a natural product derived from the belly glands of the working bee.

The bee uses nectar or honey to produce wax, in which honey is stored. It is a process of mastication and incorporation of pollen and propolis that gives the wax its beautiful range of pale  yellow to orange color. Bee Light is a social enterprise aiming to give a new life to Rwandan raw or recycled material. Our aim is to increase the well-being of people that don’t necessarily have access to the normal stream of work. We work in partnership with bees keepers to insure the best quality of bees wax.
