One of the most heavenly things a beekeeper experiences when she opens her hive is the smell of fresh beeswax. Molded into the signature honeycomb shape in the hive for storing honey, pollen, and brood, the wax itself is created by individual worker bees specifically suited for the task. Our friend Kate Ellis' family has been keeping bees on their 4th generation organic farm for years and she started Old Mill Candles to bring their deeply-nourishing, sweet-smelling beeswax magic to the world. These little beeswax blocks are useful (and then some!). How do we love thee? Let us count the ways: Smooth out sticky drawers or stubborn stuck window sashes. Deep condition wood servingware. Keep your coat zipper from sticking. Waterproof fabrics. Seal letters like you're in Downton Abbey. A quick swipe on nails and screws prevents wood from splintering. Treat metal tools to prevent rust. Rub on the rails of your sled for some real get-up-and-go. A few drops keep a taper candle upright in the holder. The list goes on and on and on (and on and on). Find out what the buzzzzz is about.
