We are increasingly more and more grateful to our bees. They work endlessly even when the sun doesn’t shine, cleaning their hives getting ready for the nectar to arrive. They forage for pollen from trees in early spring to berries and our vegetable plants during the summer months. They work from dawn to dusk and can travel up to three kilometers away from the Hill. Their goal is to produce enough honey to sustain the colony for the long winter ahead. We harvest the sweet honey in late August, leaving ample in the hives for the bees.
Mad Gardener Apiaries Candles contain pristine and 100% pure Canadian cappings beeswax. Cappings are the newest and cleanest wax in the hive. Cut from full frames of honey, they are first spun and then they are naturally cleaned without use of chemicals.
The size of candle you should choose depends to the length of time you will burn the candle.
o-Ann and Ian Fraser run Tweedle Bee Candles and handcraft 100% pure beeswax candles from premium quality locally sourced beeswax, which Ian cleans using a gentle gravity system.
