Now I love candles… My mom used to work at Yankee Candle Factory so I have a ton of candles in all scents.  However, there is something special about handmade candles.  Especially candles that have been made from pure beeswax.  Even more special is the fact that this lady married into a family of Bee Keepers…  Now how awesome is that!

The main draw for me with these candles is that beeswax is very heathly.  Burning pure beeswax candles are great for people with allergies and/or multiple chemical sensitivities.  To prep the wax is a very interesting process that she describes here:

“To prep wax, you gather the cappings which are what is left over after the honey is spun via centerfuge out of the frames of comb.  Then you clean it.  To get it real clean is a lot of work, as usually there a lot of impurities, like dirt, dead bees and honey, which is not an impurity per se, but when you are trying process wax it tends to burn then it becomes a pain, so we try to get rid of as much of it as we can beforehand. Basically what is involved is you have to separate the wax from the honey — when you heat the mass the honey sinks to the bottom and can be drained off.  Then you filter it real well and you are ready make whatever you want…”

Whatever you want is exactly right, she has some of the most variety in candles I have seen.  Just look at this one in particular:

When asked about the molds, she told me that a master mold is carved out by a scupltor, however, she is going to begin sculpting some herself very soon.  This makes her very versitile when it comes to custom requests.

Not only does she have carved candles but just take a look at these pillar candles… And yes folks those are real dried flowers.
