MADE BY BEES - Beeswax Taper Candles
The perfect hostess gift.
A package of 2 tapered candles, available in 6 inches (burn time 6 - 8 hours)
Our 100% pure Canadian beeswax candles burn three times longer than paraffin candles and contain no artificial additives, fragrances or paraffin. As it burns, pure beeswax purifies the air from mold, dust and allergens.
Cut wick to a ¼ inch for best burning.
Worker bees have eight wax-producing mirror glands on the inner sides of their abdominal segments from which wax is secreted when foraging is active. Bees must eat 8 lbs of honey to yield 1 lb of wax. The hive worker collects the wax flakes, chews them with her mandibles and shapes it to make honeycomb cells in which the young are raised, and honey and pollen are capped for storage.
MEET THE MAKER:
Priscilla is a member of the Ontario Beekeepers Association.
Priscilla is a beekeeper from Brockville, ON with a passion for honeybee advocacy. She started her beekeeping journey as a hobby with her children. When they spread their wings and left home, she morphed into a “Queen Bee”, and Made By Bees took flight.
Ultimately Priscilla's curiosity expanded beyond understanding how bee colonies flourish and included learning the critical role they play in global food security. Honeybees pollinate many delicious crops such as fruits and nuts. If bees disappeared, the human diet would be much less diverse and of course, we would miss honey! Collectively bees fly 55,000 miles to make one pound of honey - that's twice around the world!
Made By Bees started as a small collaboration with community partners has blossomed into the lively organization we know today. Located on a pesticide-free property just outside of Brockville, Ontario, it generates sustainable solutions to everyday living and cultivates a bee-friendly haven.
Taking steps together to save our bees, the planet, and your food.
