Wednesday Welcome: Peaceblossom Candles

Each week I'm using Etsy's Pounce feature in order to discover new items "from undiscovered shops waiting for their first sale" as the Etsy site states. This week's welcome is extended to Peaceblossom Candles in Oregon. They are not just candle makers, they are beekeepers as well. Each candle is poured by hand. In the shop you'll find organic pure beeswax candles in tapers, pillars and in many detailed novelty designs. You can even work with them to create a durable, heatproof silicone mold so they can produce custom candles for your business, or you can purchase the mold for your own use.
Here are some of my favorites from their shop:

Not only are they nice to look at, they are healthy to burn. Burning 100% pure beeswax is good for you and your home. No scents have been used in these candles nor are there any chemicals, paper or metals in the wicks. Therefore they are ideal for those with allergies and/or multiple chemical sensitivity.
