I am so lucky to have sourced a gorgeous wax from around the corner in Erin. It is a beautiful bright yellow, the way it should be. It burns amazing and has a fresh honey aroma. The beekeeper is still struggling to gain back the number of bees lost last year. I take whatever wax I can get, but I'm not sure at this time how much will be available. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I can source enough to provide you through till the end of the Farmer's Market on October 18th, and the Huttonville Craft & Antique Show on Saturday, November 29th and Sunday, November 30th.
I would like to say thanks to all the amazing people I met at Weekend in the Woods on Saturday, August 16th and Sunday, August 17th. That was such a wonderful experience.
I would like to mention that I now make Tea Lights because of so much demand. They are made using the wax I have sourced from Erin. The reason I have not made them sooner is I find that they don't burn quite as nice or as easily as the other shapes. They are poured in plastic tea light containers which do not create as much heat as aluminum containers, so they are safer for your tea light holders. However, I find that, because beeswax needs air space around the flame, sometimes the flame will shrink as the melted wax increases in the container. You may have to tip out some of the wax to maintain a larger flame (see Burning Tips).
