Colony Collapse Disorder

Colony collapse disorder (CCD) is a troubling phenomenon in which worker bees from a European honey bee colony abruptly disappear. Many possible causes for CCD have been proposed, but no one proposal has gained widespread acceptance among the scientific community. One of the causes suggested is a family of pesticides called neonicotinoids; other suggested causes include infections with mites; malnutrition; various pathogens; genetic factors; immunodeficiencies; loss of habitat; changing beekeeping practices; or a combination of some or all of these factors.

Unfortunately, the availability of beeswax has been severely affected by CCD. Beeswax is produced by wax-producing glands in the abdominal segments of worker bees, who discard it in or at the hive. The hive workers collect and use it to build the honey comb, forming cells for honey storage and larval and pupal comfort and protection within the hive. As the number of honeybee colonies and the amount of beeswax produced continues to drop, prices of beeswax will likely rise.

I had never tried beeswax candles before and, having done some online research, I am glad I chose these from Monastery Greetings. They really are pure and the glow is so restful. I will buy again.

I wasn't expecting to love so much the smell of these simple beeswax votives. Not only do I plan to purchase them again, I plan to find an excuse to buy some of the bigger ones too. Thank you for such a happy surprise!!

I love beeswax. It burns clean and long. The sent is nice and I have been told it clears the air. I use them whenever I need candles.
