We have hired two students again this year to help us get ahead on our beeswax birthday candle production! The regular production staff is so busy in the fall keeping up with the holiday orders that it is good for us to have a stockpile of birthday candles. This is the fourth summer we’ve had students. We love having fresh young energy in the shop through the summer and it is always nice getting to know the young people in our community.
We are delighted to introduce you to Desiree and Lara. Lara is packaging birthday candles this morning and Desiree is preparing to dip more. They are learning the art of hand dipping beeswax birthday candles, both natural and colored. Our birthday candles are like all our beeswax candles - handmade of Canadian beeswax.
Our beeswax birthday candle sales have been progressively growing every year. Parents are happy to have a birthday candle for their child’s birthday cake that is non-toxic. If a little beeswax drips on the birthday cake it’s OK – it’s only safe healthy beeswax. Did you know that beeswax is sometimes used to preserve cheese and is an ingredient for some gourmet cooking?
Another advantage of our natural candles on your birthday cake is they are naturally long burning. Nothing burns as long as beeswax (without additives). That means you have time to take lots of great photos of your child with their beautiful birthday cake. Burning beeswax birthday candles also create a soft amber light for perfect highlights.
We like to celebrate staff birthdays at Honey Candles. Most recently staff members, Marlie and Wendy had birthdays within a few days of each other so we had a double celebration with a summer birthday cake – a watermelon cake. Like always we decorated it with Honey Candles beeswax Birthday Candles. Then we sliced it up and had a big fruit salad with a splash of Greek yogurt. Cool and delicious!
Do you use beeswax birthday candles for your birthday celebrations? We would love to hear the reasons why they are important to you!
