Honeybees eat more than eight pounds of honey to produce just one pound of beeswax. The bee produces flakes of beeswax from three pairs of glands on her abdomen. The beautiful maize color of beeswax comes from the honey, and the pollen and propolis the bees collect.
Jodi Bee beeswax candles are made from capping wax only. Capping wax is made from honey collected this season from fields of wildflowers and flowering trees growing wild in southeast Michigan.
Beeswax candles have been highly valued throughout the ages and are an important part of our American heritage. The natural scent of beeswax is a unique fragrance that reminds us of fields of flowers and the hum of bees. Our hand crafted candles bring elegance and a natural glow to each room of a home.
