National Honey Bee Day

Saturday August 16, 2013 is National Honey Bee Day.
Thank a Honey Bee today!

100% Pure Beeswax Candles

Votive candles & 10" taper candles.

Handmade 100% pure beeswax candles with a cotton wick. The beeswax is a product of our bees
and smells fresh and clean with a hint of honey. Nothing is added.
The candles smell good enough to eat!

Candles, Soap, Lip Balm..........

We finally did it! 
For so long now we have been putting off working with the other " products of the hive" and have concentrated on bees and honey, in that order.
Over the years we have collected a large quantity of beautiful raw beeswax and jar after jar of aromatic propolis. It's been stored away in the shop waiting for us to create something with it.

That day has come, and we have teamed with a terrific local artisan to produce 2 styles of handmade cold pour honey beeswax soap, 3 flavors of beeswax lip balm with vitamin E and 2 sizes of 100% pure beeswax handmade candles. Not bad eh?
(Notice there is no mention here of the many less than satisfactory results we had to work through to get to the level of quality we expect at Tom's - we'd like to forget all that if it's OK)

Now we're working on packaging for all those new products so we can introduce them to everyone. Well, not everyone because we have been passing out testers of our new products for a couple of weeks now and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive! Just what we were hoping for in order to move forward and get it out there for all to enjoy. 

We're not exactly sure when, but keep an eye out for the introduction of these new artisanal products from Tom's sometime this summer.
