That's quite a depressing thought I know and whether it's true or not we like little bee's and it's good to help the environment.
We were recently sent a few pieces from the brand Beefayre. Their ethos (or beethos as they call it) is to protect our bees and their habitats, create quality products that do not cost the earth, and to ensure ingredients are sustainably sourced.
We took a peek at one of their candles from the Bee Garden range called Bluebell and wood anenome.
The glass holders are decorated with botanical scenes obviously which feature a bee!
This size candle has a 50 hour burn time which slowly releases the fragrance.
There are a number of different scents in this range so check their site out to pick your favourite one.
There is no mistaking the bluebell scent in this candle, it's super strong. I love the delicate patterns on the glass and even after the candle has been burnt it will be gorgeous to re use and is dishwasher safe also.
The ingredients are so natural you can even dip your fingers in the melted wax and use as a massage oil. 3% of the profits from these candles go towards bee conservation.
Once you have gotten through this candle get hold of some of the Beefayre tea lights.
You get three tea lights in a box which sit in a recycled glass holder also (although the glass on these is not patterned).
The pack of tea lights are £6.95 for three. We have the Watermint and Rosemary scented ones which are lovely in the kitchen for a fresh herb scent.
Amongst other home ware, bath and body and cards Beefayre also do handbag friendly lip balms. Shea butter, sunflower oil, melissa oil and beeswax is compacted into a 10g tin and are 100% organic.
