One of the many by products of bee keeping is used honey comb. After our first year of keeping bees we had many frames of honey comb that we would not reuse. We also had honey comb from several bee removal projects. As the honey comb continued to pile up we began to ask ourselves what should we do with all this old honey comb?
By our second year of bee keeping we decided to melt the honey comb down into large pieces of wax. After several years of collecting wax my daughter, Katie, finally decided what she wanted to do with some of the beeswax.
Her idea….make 100% Beeswax based products. Candles, Lip Balm and Lotion. All wax comes from honey bees in the Gaston County area of NC. Beeswax candles burn longer, are naturally scented and are all natural. Below you can purchase some of her products.
