Pair of Small Beehive Skeps. Handmade, 100% Pure Australian Beeswax Candles
Pair of old-fashioned woven beehive style beeswax candle
The perfect gift for bee-lovers of all ages -their very own hives (candles)
The hive is buzzing with action, and these beautiful beeswax candles are no exception. Spring is always in the air with this pair of hives, adorned with happy bees making honey.
The delightful pair of beeswax Skeps are a great gift for bee-loving friends and family (and who can resist it!). The Beeswax Skeps look fantastic displayed with honey-pots full of flowers, burning as a centrepiece surrounded by spring blooms, or sitting on the mantlepiece. When burning, they release a soft honey scent, and cast a soft candle glow over the room, making them perfect for bath time or romance.
Fun Fact: Skep is the name given to the upturned woven basket traditionally used as a beehive. These were abandoned after the Victorian era, when easier to access, and reusable options were formed. As the Skep had to be destroyed to access the honey and honeycomb, they were a more labour intensive option. These days, beehives for commercial honey need to be easy to access to inspect the hives. Some smaller beekeepers are using Skeps still and maintaining the dying art of Skep making.
Pair your Beeswax Skep with our larger Skeps for a striking display.
The large Beeswax Skeps make a unique wedding centerpiece, and the smaller Skeps are perfect for bonbonniere.
