Beeswax does not go bad and has been recovered from ancient ship wrecks heated up and is still usable. Over time beeswax gets what is called bloom. A light powdery substance that come out from within the wax. It is not mold and can be simply buffed off or left on for a nice patina on a candle.

I got my hive earlier this spring, but it wasn’t practical to move it onto my land until recently. despite cooler fall temperatures, I’ve been seeing the bees return from foraging with plenty of pollen!
Well, is hornet season for sure! Meat eaters! They hang out around the hive waiting for weak older bees then attack. I spend a lot of time out there swatting or stepping on them! I use something called an “entrance reducer” on the threshold of their entrance to reduce the amount of space the guard bees have to manage. Goes from about a 16 inch entrance to about an inch! The hornets like to try to get in to kill the queen then rob the hive of honey and eat the honey bees!!! #savethebees#honeybees#honeybee#beekeeperslife#urbanbeekeeper
Leura - a beautiful place to visit 🌺
I am truly blessed to have amazing stockists here in the Blue Mountains, whom I love to visit. Everglades Historic House and Gardens in Leura @nationaltrustnsw is truly picturesque in spring.
A spectacular, world-renowned garden set against a backdrop of bush and sweeping views. The immaculate gardens , gorgeous gift shop and stunning historic house are looked after by a team of volunteers. It is always such a pleasure to meet Victoria & Lucille in the gift shop, where you can find a range of products by @ninasbees . As for me, I never leave the gift shop without the most delicious strawberry jam, handmade by John, one of the volunteers at #everglades .
If you are planning a trip to the Blue Mountains, please give yourself a pleasure of discovering Everglades Historic House and Gardens in Leura.
