Day 6 – 12 days of Designer Christmas Beeswax Candles
Chandler, Jill Smith, starts her candle making process with 45-pound blocks of pure 100% beeswax that she sources from a single supplier in Alberta. These blocks arrive on a palette, delivered by truck to her Salt Spring Island driveway. She explained that it is quite a sight to see this load waiting for her to act.
A bit like a boxer and their punching bag, breaking these solid blocks of wax into manageable pieces does wonders for stress release. Jill then takes the smaller pieces and melts the wax to the correct temperature before pouring the molten liquid into her custom moulds.
There are three of her signature series candles available on Atelier: Key to my Heart, Simple Fern and Vintage Bee. These beautiful candles burn a clean, natural, sweet smelling smoke. Here are five reasons to buy a beeswax candle.
Or, create an artistic home decor combination package and include a hardwood serving board and linen tea towels, both made on Bowen Island near Vancouver.
