Wax is such a versatile product - what do you do with yours?
Over the last few weeks we have seen many tons of wax leave our stores, winging its way all over the country and indeed the world to customers large and small. Beeswax, Soy Wax, Paraffin Wax and more are picked, packed and shipped to the UK, France, Spain, Italy and more - we even had an order from Her Majesty's Army!
We do receive lots of feedback from our customers, many of whom are using our products to make wax candles either to give as gifts, or to sell in shops and markets. In the run up to the Christmas season (yes I know it's still only September!) candle making really takes off as people prepare for the seasonal rush.
Wax is such a versatile product and its uses extend beyond candles - it can be used for lubricating and polishing, for cosmetics and even in food manufacturing to give produce a glorious shiny coating and added protection.
We would love to hear more about what our customers use their wax for - it's a great way to learn more about what we need to focus on over the coming months and if nothing else let's us see some of the wonderful things that can be done with such a simple product.
Feel free to comment below or send us a picture of what you have been producing and we can share with our readers and hopefully inspire us all!
