Bethany's Profile

About

Wondering WHO & WHY we are? perhaps even WHERE we came from?

My name is Bethany, Maine native & founder of Nature's Flame...which started as a candle, herb & pen addiction during 1993. A couple years later, my brother Chris & I turned my '69 Chevy truck into a traveling Candle Shoppe. Life was good! We could work while meeting fellow candle gazers throughout New England. And we had a lot of fun doing so.

After lots of messy events & the realization that we needed a plan - we settled on a candle style & crafting method (developed by us in our kitchen). Then came studying essential oils to add for meaningful, delicate aroma blends just right for our Nature's Flame Candles. Scrolls were soon written to accompany each candle, allowing the holder to understand the natural gifts held within. The same scrolls are used today, with our candle classics - the BeesWax Columns &…

Wondering WHO & WHY we are? perhaps even WHERE we came from?

My name is Bethany, Maine native & founder of Nature's Flame...which started as a candle, herb & pen addiction during 1993. A couple years later, my brother Chris & I turned my '69 Chevy truck into a traveling Candle Shoppe. Life was good! We could work while meeting fellow candle gazers throughout New England. And we had a lot of fun doing so.

After lots of messy events & the realization that we needed a plan - we settled on a candle style & crafting method (developed by us in our kitchen). Then came studying essential oils to add for meaningful, delicate aroma blends just right for our Nature's Flame Candles. Scrolls were soon written to accompany each candle, allowing the holder to understand the natural gifts held within. The same scrolls are used today, with our candle classics - the BeesWax Columns & Minis.

Our goals have been to bring a 2nd life to the wonders found outside and allow the gifts from the Honey Bee to be appreciated. When viewing our classic candles, the Column & Mini, you will get a glimpse of this... wild flowers found within our woods, beeswax & and the honeycomb pattern found within. A true refuge of the individual spirit in a mass produced world.

Chris helped with this plan. Even as he grew older and made his own trail in this world. He has always been available to test, proof read, pick rose hips and even jump into the chaos during a long night in the shoppe.

Years later a new partner entered into the picture. Benjamin. He has offered encouragement, advice and a fire under my behind when I need it most. He brings a lot to the work shop - ideas, motivation, common sense & an eagerness to be a part of it all.

Though Chris' laugh is missed greatly in the shoppe, it is forever in our memory. And Natures Flame continues on.

'The life of Man is said to be like a candle - the candle itself the mortal form, the un-melted wax undeveloped potential, and its flame the spirit - for candles are not only light, but living fire.' -Author Anonymous
