Beeswax candles....a whimsical notion

I was surfing the web the other day and came across Chris’s Country Essence, a website that offers products made my bees, like beeswax candles and beeswax pillar candles. I have a whimsical nature, so I snapped up a couple of the bear and bee candles. The beeswax pillar candles, as the name implies, are just thick columns, nothing whimsical about them! 

I became interested in bees a few years ago, after seeing Jerry Seinfeld’s animated film The Bee Movie.  I liked the beginning of that movie, but the ending sucked, I have to say! But I decided to do some research into bees after seeing the film and found out that it had played fast and loose with the truth. Male bees – the “pollen jocks” according to the movie, do NOT go out of the hive. They are drones – they serve the queen. It is the female bees who go out and pollinate the plants!

The movie also brought to the forefront the fact that honey bees are dying off in record numbers and no one knows why...that’s still going on today. Kind of scary.

Anyway, if you are interested in beeswax candles or beeswax pillar candles – check out this site. They’ve also got various skin care and bath and body products made from beeswax that you might be interested in.
