Hi, my name is Angelika! I married into a beekeeping family. My husband Mike has been keeping bees his whole life. It's the only job he's ever known. He learned the craft from his dad, who learnied it from Grandpa... So when I joined the family in 1995, naturally I tried my hand at the bee work.

I'd always made a few candles, but in 2006, I decided to really have a go at increasing the number and selection of candle types I offer. I had no idea how many there eventually would be!
Now I sell thousands of pure beeswax candles every year, every one of which I pour myself. And I have one of the largest selections on the Web, too. Now I am finding people imitating my original designs, even…
