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.
It is a valuable commodity and takes time to extract and render.
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 some and see if it helps.
Some of the bees I manage are helping to pollinate local fruit growers trees. Pears, apples and cherries being the main varieties. The hives are sited within the orchards ready for spring time blossoms. Everybody benefits.
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. Thanks.
