About Us

Why am I making Beeswax Candles?

 

I live in Stayner, Ontario, a small town just outside of Barrie,  on a 5 acre farm.  There is a forest on my property with a stream running through it.  The birds visit my feeders and the chipmunks pick up the fallen seeds.  The bees pollinate my flowers.  The chirping, scurrying, and buzzing is my orchestra.  One day my life changed, someone very close to me got cancer.  Feeling helpless I started asking myself how can I help.  The answer for me was beeswax candles.  

Burning Beeswax candles releases negative ions into the air which subsequently purifies the air by getting rid of dust, allergens and mold spores.  Beeswax candles are the only candle that burn pure and clean. So you can burn a beeswax candle to set the mood for relaxation and peace but also be aware that the air you are breathing in is clean and free of toxins.


Along with my bees we produce 100% pure bees wax creations, candles, body products, beeswax wraps and wood conditioner for all your precious wood.

We are busy bees.

Keeping it Natural

 I purchase my wax from a local 3rd generation beekeeper.

My beeswax is 100% pure.

I triple clean the beeswax to make sure all impurities are removed from the wax.

I clean the wax in a solar oven (nature doing nature's work).

My wicks are 100% unbleached cotton.  

I hand pour all my candles so each is uniquely different.

My candles are made with compassion , love, and integrity.

Our motto

Bee Happy 

Bee Healthy

Bee Aware

Tips and Tricks

How To Burn Pure Beeswax Candles

  

  • Always keep the wick trimmed to 1/4 ".
  • When lighting your candle tip it on its side and light the wick at the base allowing some wax to melt (melt pool), gradually straighten your candle onto a wax safe plate.
  • Pillar candles should burn until the melt pool reaches about 1/4" from the outside wall of the candle.
  • To snuff your candle out push the wick into the melted wax with a fire proof utensil like a spoon handle, a wick dipper, etc.. Once the flame is extinguished gently push the softened sides at the top of your candle inward. This is called hugging your candle and will allow you to burn more beeswax as opposed to the candle burning straight through the centre.















 

  • Keep your burning candle away from drafts.
  • If your flame is bigger than an inch it is time to trim your wick (do not drop trimmed wick into melt pool).
  • Never leave a burning candle unattended.
  • Want the smell of your beeswax candle but don't want to burn it, simply put it in a sunny window to warm up which will release the honey aroma.
