    Beeswax dinner candle pair dipped

    £8.00

    Hand dipped in a workshop in Alison’s home county of Cumbria with English beeswax. This is a traditional method of dipping a length of taut wick into molten wax, removing it, allowing the wax to cool and repeating multiple times to build up thin layers of wax and eventually creating these superb candles.

    On opening these candles smell beautifully of honey.

    Beeswax is the ‘King’ of all waxes, it burns slowly with a perfect flame and beeswax are the only candles which apparently don’t pollute the atmosphere. In fact, they produce a negative ion when they burn thus making dust and pollen drop form the air. Are these the perfect candles to burn for hay fever sufferers? We think so!

    We’ve photographed the candles showing the wax ‘polished’ and shiny, and matt and milky with ‘bloom’. Bloom is a natural process of beeswax, ageing and environment creates a milky and matt finish on the wax – the bloom – preferred by Americans apparently. If your candles develop a bloom and you prefer them looking shiny, then all that’s needed is to rub gently with a fine cloth and voila!

  • Beeswax dinner candle pair, handrolled with fine glittered spiral edge

    £6.00

    These we love to make by decorating a sheet of ‘foundation’ wax with the finest dusting of glitter which highlights the spiral top to the wax and then hand rolling each candle.

    It’s a traditional activity, cathartic and lovely for the hands. Foundation is the sheet of wax, imprinted with the honeycomb and given to the bees as a base for them to draw their honeycomb. For bees to make wax they have to consume vast amounts of honey; for 1lb weight of wax bees need to eat 5lb weight of honey (having collected and created it first of course). So we help them along by providing the sheet wax in a frame.

    On opening the natural beeswax candles they smell beautifully of honey. The coloured options lose this sweetness during the processing and retain all the natural goodness of beeswax candles.

    Fascinating Facts Tea Towel

    £8.50

    We just had to share some fascinating facts with everyone about our clever bees.

    Robin is the artist and drew our bee as well as the ‘skep’ a traditional beehive made from straw and we designed the text to follow a flying bee.

    Facts such as ‘a queen bee can lay up to 1500 eggs a day’

    This is good quality linen union combination cloth, printed in the UK. Presented tightly folded with a corrugated card and label around this is a great present for anyone interested in bees. We did sell one to someone who was going to embroider and paint the towel to use in the classroom – what a great idea!

    Furniture cream

    £8.50

    This is from a traditional and much loved recipe providing a long lasting solution to retaining the good looks and longevity of your wood.  Using this cream will remind you of past times !

    Turpentine and beeswax are a classic combination for bringing out the best in natural materials and wood will be left with a soft sheen and we add a hint of lavender too.

    Apply with a soft cloth and rub in circular motion across the surface. This cream cleans too so the cloth will become discoloured. Leave to soak in and then buff with a fresh cloth.

    It’s only necessary to use this cream every few months or if your wood is looking lack lustre and between times dust with a dampened cloth.

    200ml pot

    Leather cream

    £5.50

    A traditional recipe, similar to our furniture cream, embracing the protecting qualities of beeswax and natural turpentine.

    Perfect for all those handbags, shoes and the sofa.

    The effect of this cream is long lasting and helps retain that ‘just bought look’, healing those scuffs too.

    This cream feeds as well as allowing the leather to breathe producing a fabulous sheen.

    As this is a traditional combination the ingredients may separate slightly so;  a good shake before use and then dab the liquid onto a soft cloth, allow the cream to  be absorbed and then buff with a  fresh soft cloth.
