The Processing of beeswax
In a nut shell and many hours of multiple filtering's later this is what it takes to get from A to B. Lots of water and lots of screens and rags for filtering. Separating, draining, steaming, melting , filtering.
I some items that are available year round others are coming as I am always looking for new idea's. If you would like something made such as wedding favors or tea light candles please call a month in advance. I do hand dipped beeswax candles non scented and some scented candles. Honey soap and lip balm are a staple to my inventory. All my items are made by myself with all natural ingredients. All products will contain some amount of honey or beeswax. If you would like me to be at a event or church function please call for availability.
