Waxing lyrical with a Busy Bee Candle.

I had a problem with using candles before my ceiling and walls had got all sooty. I was in despair because I like candles but I didn't want to end up in the same predicament. So after chatting with Busybee Candles with many a bee pun along the way. I was kindly told that the problem was that I had been using paraffin candles and with a Busybee candle this wouldn't be a problem. to quote BusyBeeCandle "Busy Bee only make gorgeous scented candles & home fragrance products using soy wax and by hand. Long lasting home fragrance - Naturally."

I took a look at their candles and at first thought gosh they are expensive but they are not for what you get the quality and fragrance are fantastic . I choose the Strawberries and Cream candle. This reminds me even on a dull day of sitting in the candles drinking Pimms and watching Wimbledon. And of course I keep my evil cat out of the way while the candle is lit. The candle is housed within a hexagonal jar which is indicative of a honeycomb. For the candle to last is is really vital that you follow the instructions.  Note to self : Do not buy an army camouflage bed with a Silver Tabby Ninja Killer cat.

Busybeecandles have offered a prize of four fragrance bars if you go to their web site and find the answer to this question "Which speciality candle would be most apt after you have mowed the grass.?"

  30. How didn't I notice this before?

    Though Fresh Cut Grass is likely to be the answer, for me, the most appropriate fragrance for after cutting the lawn would be Sun Washed Linen, as I have hayfever & I'd need to get changed straight afterwards!
