Back in 2013, Isaac wrote a blog post about how we render beeswax from hive cappings into these huge blocks pictured below, and eventually into beeswax candles. If you missed it, you might want to check it out here.
It gives a great overview of what becomes of the wax as a by-product of honey extraction, and the process we take to get it to the finished product. Today, I'd like to show you 3 new candles designs available in our online store.
I can't resist a morel mushroom.... So when I saw these new designs available from my favorite candle mold provider, I had to snatch them up. I am an avid morel mushroom hunter in the Spring, so it seemed like a necessity to have this little reminder, year round, of good things to come in the Spring..
This next one is called "Woodland Bliss" Pillar. Isn't she a beauty?
And last, we have a set of 3 pinecones. My fourth style of pinecone candle. You can never have enough pinecones....
We've already seen an increase in candle sales, as customers are buying them for hostess gifts, Thanksgiving centerpieces, and early Holiday shopping. Candle making is one of my favorite jobs here at Honeyrun Farm, so I'd like to offer up a huge "thank-you" to all the customers who keep me busy pouring wax and creating new candles for you to enjoy!
