    I have been a hobby beekeeper for 5 years. It's been a fascinating hobby and one which meshes well with my environmental studies degree, experience in chemistry and as a garden maintenance lead.

Thank you for checking out my store! My handmade goods are made with quality materials and attention to detail. I am very particular about my finished products. That being said, my candles are made with beeswax, a natural product which will vary in color. There may be small amounts of pollen in the beeswax. I hand pour my candles in small batches and each item will be unique in itself. I have a pet free and smoke free home.

Care should always be taken when burning candles. Wicks should be trimmed to 1/4 inch when re-lighting for best results. Candles should be on a heat resistant surface, such as a candle dish or holder. Votives should be in some kind of votive holder or dish because they will overflow as they melt. Tea lights should also be used in an appropriate tea light holder as they will completely melt when burning. Candles should be kept away from drafts for best burn. Never burn candles unattended and keep out of reach of children and pets.

My hand-poured beeswax molded candles have won first place at the MN State Fair (2014, 2013) and second place (2012). My soaps and lip balms have also been awarded ribbons at the MN State Fair during the past three years.

Honey will be available late summer to early fall until I sell out. My honey is hand extracted and bottled. I do filter it so there aren't pieces of wax but I don't overfilter so it still contains bits of pollen and all of the other nutritional properties that you want in your honey. My honey is Grade A, award winning honey (MN State Fair: Novice 2nd Place 2011, Novice 1st Place 2012, Open Class 4th Place (2014). FYI: Honey is sold by weight and not volume.

Do I treat my bees at other times of the year? I practice an integrated pest management approach. I treat if necessary with the least harmful application and again, never when honey supers are on. My bees are in a suburb of a large metropolitan city with farmlands, residential areas, and conservation area close by. They may come in contact with pesticides or other chemicals that are out of my control. Honeybees typically forage 2-5 miles in any direction and no one can control where they collect their nectar from. That being said, I do my best to offer an excellent product with the environment that I have available to me and the bees.

****** Raw honey should NEVER be fed to children under 1 year of age!! Consult your pediatrician for more information. ******

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept paypal or direct checkout with a credit card only at this time. Payment is expected immediately.
Shipping
Each item has shipping listed for within the United States only. I will ship by USPS first class or priority mail, whichever is less. You can always request priority but I may have to charge you slightly more. It is my intention to ship ready-made products within 2-5 days of receiving your order. If I cannot accomplish this for some reason, I will contact you directly. I try my best to estimate shipping costs - it is not my intention to make money on shipping. If you overpay by $3.00 or more, I will refund your paypal account to the nearest dollar.

I follow Etsy's guidelines for combined shipping, which are as follows:

Combined Shipping allows you to specify a special shipping cost in the event that multiple items are purchased by a shopper from your shop at the same time. Combined Shipping has two elements that you must enter on all listings: primary and secondary shipping costs. The primary shipping cost is the value of shipping the item alone. The secondary shipping cost is the added value when items are purchased and shipped together ("if shipped with another item").

If you don't want to offer a discounted combined shipping rate, just enter the same amount for the primary and secondary shipping costs.

If you want additional items to ship at no extra charge, enter $0.00 as the secondary shipping cost.

Here's an example of how Combined Shipping works:
•Item A:
◦Primary shipping cost = $2.00
◦Secondary shipping cost = $0.50

•Item B:
◦Primary shipping cost = $1.00
◦Secondary shipping cost = $0.75

•If both Item A and Item B are purchased together, the total Combined Shipping cost to the buyer is $2.75. This is the greater primary shipping cost of the two items (Item A: $2.00) plus the secondary shipping cost of the other item (Item B: $0.75).


For international shipping, please contact me. I do believe in supporting local beekeepers so have not offered that option, however, you may want to experience a Midwestern, USA honey and I can accomodate your special request.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want complete customer satisfaction. If you are not happy with your product for some reason, I will be happy to exchange, give a full refund, or store credit for the purchase*. The item will need to be shipped to me before any refunds will take place. I will not refund your initial shipping costs. Shipping on returns is the responsibility of the buyer. I will be happy to provide the exchange shipping at no cost to you.

* Custom order sales are final - no exchanges, refunds or store credit will be issued.
Additional policies and FAQs
Basic Candle Safety & Burning Instructions: Remove all packaging and place candle on heat resistant surface. Burn candle no longer than 3 to 4 hours per lighting. Keep wick trimmed to 1/4 inch to prevent a smoking candle. Keep burning candles out of drafty areas as drafts will cause candle to burn unevenly and smoke. Candle may drip, so burn on a non-porous heat resistant container to catch molten wax. NEVER LEAVE A BURNING CANDLE UNATTENDED. LASTLY, KEEP CANDLES OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN. When candle has 1 inch of wax left, discard.

Candle bloom is the whitish film which develops naturally on beeswax candles after a while. It can very easily be wiped off with a clean, damp cloth if you so desire. Some people find the coloring desirable.

With shaped candles, wax may drip down the sides. This cannot be completely eliminated, so be sure to burn candles on a candle dish or votive holder, depending upon the type.

Honey crystallizes naturally and does not mean that it has gone bad. You can re-liquify your honey by placing the container in a hot water bath (not boiling). It may require repeated baths for the honey to liquify entirely. You can also enjoy the crystallized honey as is in tea, recipes, etc. Honey does not have an expiration date and as long as it is tightly covered, it will last indefinitely. Raw honey should never be fed to children under 2 years of age.

Cold processed soaps will last longer with a soap dish. Your soap should not sit in water or it will become soft and mushy.
