Lavender-Polish-1
Beeswax Lavender Polish

Made with pure beeswax from our orchard hives. I render my family polish mix and hand ladle it into each round tin. Every polish is hand made using the raw beeswax from my own hives.

Our furniture polish is wonderful to help nourish dry, brittle wood back to health. Then in keeping with the true Victorian recipe, I add pure Lavender oil, which is said to keep moths & woodworm at bay! Unlike spray polishes, beeswax polish will buff up time after time and does not yellow. Our polish is clear, no dyes are used. Good for all types of new or fine antique woods.

REMEMBER: Keep out of reach of Children.

Beeswax polish builds up layers each time you polish, so eventually the wood stops absorbing the polish and you get a great protective outer layer that just needs the occasional light buffing.

We polished our antique church pew and the result is amazing-see photo.

Beeswax Dinner Candle-Large Tapered

These candles are 100% Pure Beeswax.

Burning time approx. 6-8 hrs each

Pure beeswax is in fact nectar. The bees gather nectar from different flowers and trees, and through a chemical change within the bee it produces the wax. It is the beekeepers task to remove by hand any extra or old wax from their hives, and with the aid of a solar extractor, (Simply a wooden box with double glazing) uses the heat from the suns rays to melt and naturally lighten the wax. The wax is then strained through a fine muslin cloth many times to remove any foreign matter. Bees have to consume 7lbs. of honey to produce one lb. of wax. It takes 10.000 bees working for three days to produce that one lb. of wax.

 

REMEMBER: Never leave alight while unattended. Children should only light a candle under adult supervision. Always burn on a heat resistant surface. Keep out of draughts, keep the wick trimmed.
