Elly Archer - Dentdale Bees

 

Beeswax has been widely used over the centuries for many reasons, most commonly to make candles. In fact, beeswax candles are thought to be healthier than most, since they donít produce toxic by-products and heavy soot when burned. Beeswax also has conditioning benefits for the skin, including an action that helps to calm and soothe.

Elly has used her interest in bees to develop her range of candles and skin products. She uses beeswax to makes candles moulding in interest shapes or decorated with pressed flowers.
