Heidi Sanner, Eastwood, KY
Heidi, who is a medical technologist and a CPA, has turned an 83 acre farm and beekeeping activity into a thriving beeswax candle enterprise with a national presence. She is a raw food vegetarian, beekeeper and crafter of signature candles using her own molding and press techniques.
Bees are kept naturally at Candle Bee Farm™ ensuring healthy hives and pure bees wax for candles. Candle Bee Farm candles are 100% Beeswax and naturally possess the subtle aroma of honey. Heidi states that hardeners, scents and other waxes are irritating to the respiratory system. Therefore, no additives are used at Candle Bee™. When beeswax burns, it is consumed and is without soot. Candle Bee Farm™ dinner tapers and plain pillars burn drip-less if kept from draft. 100% Beeswax Candles also burn up to five times longer than other waxes or wax combinations.
As Candle Bee Farm™ has grown; the demand for the candles exceeds the wax production of the farm. Heidi searches out select beekeepers from whom she obtains beeswax, insisting on pure, domestic sources.
Candle Bee Farm candles can also be found at the Kentucky Artisan Center at Berea, Berea, KY; Log House Gallery, Berea, KY; and The Corner Store, LaGrange, KY.
