News About Our Candles

Posted 29 April 2017

As we enter the spring and summer the curse of hayfever is upon us again. There are a large number of articles on the web and in magazines about the benefits of beeswax in being able to alleviate the symptoms of hayfever. I have taken this one as an example:

Since the Middle Ages, beeswax candles have been used to alleviate allergies and other upper-respiratory symptoms. Studies indicate that the burning of beeswax actually purifies the air, cleaning it of dust, pollens, allergens, smoke and viruses. These natural air cleansers are known as a healthy alternative to the more commonly used paraffin-based candles.

It does work why not try beeswax candles.

Although this is not about our candles it is essential for bees. I want you to consider sowing wild flower seeds in a small part of you garden or allotment, if you do not have either a garden or allotment then consider a container or window box. The reason for this request is to encourage more pollinating insects not just honey bees but bumble bees and the many other insects that are essential for pollinating our flowers and food crops. Thank you for reading this I hope you can help.

The wholesale cost of beeswax has risen by 30% over the last few months. This means that we have had to increase our prices. We have previously absorbed the extra cost but unfortunately this is no longer sustainable.
