Beespoke of Devon beeswax candle in a skep beehive shape
How adorable is this Beeswax Beehive Candle from Beespoke of Devon? Shaped as a small skep (beehive), it is made with 100% natural beeswax which has a lovely sweet aroma.
Beeswax smells lovely as it is naturally scented by the honey and floral nectar in the honeycomb. It is non-toxic and hypo-allergenic and may benefit those with environmental allergies, sensitivities and asthma.

Skeps (baskets placed open-end-down) have been used to house bees for around 2000 years. There is a single entrance at the bottom of the skep with no internal structure provided for the bees - so the colony must produce its own honeycomb, which is attached to the inside of the skep.
