Did You Know? Blooming Beeswax

Did you know that beeswax blooms? When beeswax is stored in a cool place it develops a frost-like appearance on its surface, much like chocolate does. This bloom doesn't affect the burning quality of the wax and is quite easy to remedy, if you should choose to do so. Simply wave the heat of a hair drier or heat gun across the surface of the candle. It doesn't take much heat to restore the deeper color of the wax, so take care not to melt the surface. This process works all beeswax, dyed or natural, and only beeswax. Keep your colors deep and vibrant with a little swish of heat.

New Start

Hello to all of you newcomers, and SURPRISE! to all of you return visitors. (I saw you looking, Charlotte.)

The Auntie B's Wax blog is taking on a new shape. In order to completely clear the cobwebs, I've deleted all previous posts and will start with a clean slate.

I've been inspired by some other blogs out there and will be taking steps to make this one a journal/gallery/shopping resource for many of my products. At least that is my vision at this point. Stay tuned to see what actually transpires!

In the meantime, the sidebar lists the stores, boutiques, and craft shows at which my trinkets and treasures can be found. Come and see me sometime!
