Many of the candles are made using our own beeswax which we harvest from The Hive apiaries, which is an unaffected & renewable resource, working alongside nature.
100% pure, unadulterated English Beeswax. Our beeswax is FOOD GRADE rated as we do not add chemicals, bleaches or sugars. It is hand scraped from our beehives and wide filtered through cotton muslin using only steam.
Perfect for making cloth food wraps. How? Watch:
The colour may vary as we do not tamper unnecessarily with the wax, just steam melt, filter and cast them into 30g. bars. They make a fabulously natural base for making your own cosmetics or polish as well. Our beeswax is food grade rated as we do not add chemicals, bleaches or sugars.
