Pure Natural Essex Honey


Robert Clare Beekeeper
A big hello and welcome !
I am an old
Essex beekeeper based in the North of Essex near Colchester in the UK with honey bees producing natural pure Essex honey. My honey bee families are located in apiaries in the countryside and orchards around Copford, Marks Tey and Colchester. The honey is unheated cold filtered and non pasteurised. Cold filtering the honey means that the original pollen is retained in the honey and filtering is only done to remove pieces of honeycomb wax. Honey which is heated above 45C destroys the antioxidants, important enzymes, vitamins and other beneficial attributes of the honey. Heating also affects the the natural aroma and flavour of the honey. I practice sustainable beekeeping as far as possible. My bees are locally adapted. I raise my own queens and do not keep or use imported honey bees or queens.

Benefits of lighting pure beeswax candles

Para-therapeutic and relaxing attributes of beeswax candles have been known for hundreds of years. They used to be used for liturgical rites and also for providing light to rich households.

They have an original and attractive look; they burn smokeless whilst producing a soft, gentle scent of honey and propolis, they also work as negative ionisers.

They eliminate electromagnetic radiation caused by electrical appliances and neutralize cigarette smoke.

Beeswax, the material the candles are made of is obtained from old wax and debris that are left out during the frame uncapping during honey extraction.

After melting and filtering it can be refined by adding various essential or fragrance oils, although it is not necessary.

The natural beeswax used in my candles is not imported but produced by my bees here in Essex UK.


Hay Fever

Many of my customers have said that using pure local honey on a regular basis has helped their hay fever symptoms during the allergy season. Try it and see.

Pollination

Some of the bees I manage are helping to pollinate local fruit growers trees. Pears, apples and cherries being the main varieties. The bee hives are sited within the orchards just before spring time ready for the blossoms. Everybody benefits.

Bee Friendly

Please plant bee friendly plants in your garden. Early spring flowering plants such as crocus and snowdrops provide early pollen source for the bees. Dandelions are a great resource for bees please leave a patch for them to grow on your lawn. Planting wild flower seed mix in your grass lawn and leaving a section uncut during the summer will also benefit all your local pollinators.
