HONEY AND BEESWAX CANDLES
100% Pure Beeswax Creations and Local Raw Honey
We are proud to carry 100% raw, natural, local honey and pure, hand-poured beeswax candles from Tomten Beeworks of Ipswich, Massachusetts. All of our beeswax creations are made from 100% pure beeswax. Our liquid and creamed honey is raw, meaning it is never heated over the temperature the honeybees keep it in the hive.
“The honeybee lives as if it were in an air saturated thoroughly by love.” -R. Steiner
Beeswax has been highly prized since ancient times. Honeybees (apis melliferae), long regarded as models of industry and purity, make their wax from the nectar of flowers. As they travel from flower to flower they also collect pollen, which they store in their hives for food. In fact, all of the bees’ food and living quarters are derived from nectar or pollen. And it should be pointed out that nectar and pollen are found only in those parts of the plant that are centered in love.
Beeswax is a natural substance which burns clean, and longer than paraffin (which is a petroleum byproduct).
Raw honey is known for its health-giving, healing properties. Eating honey - especially raw, local honey - is known for boosting the immune system and lessening allergy symptoms.
