9 Perfect End Of Year Teacher’s Gifts

“A good teacher is like a candle, it consumes itself to light the way for others.” Mustafa Kemal Atatürk

It’s coming to that time of the year again when we show our appreciation for one of the most noble professions in our community… our children’s teachers.

My mum was a teacher, so I remember each year the pile of presents she would receive from her adoring students. She loved the gifts, but when the end of year haul came home there were few presents that really stood out. I didn’t mind… it was the many boxes of chocolate I was more interested in!Read More

The Chemical Free Aussie Beekeeper Who Won’t Use Beeswax Candles

Aussie Beekeeper, Chris Blamire, has added fuel to the debate on whether beeswax candles are better, healthier and more sustainable than other natural wax candles. Mr Blamire said, “Natural and organic product lovers might be shocked if they knew the truth about beeswax. I won’t use it for candles, even when the wax comes from my own chemical free organic hives.”

So what could be wrong with such an incredible wax made by the honey bee, one of the most amazing creatures on planet earth? Is this beekeeper a vegan, animal loving eco warrior who won’t use or consume anything produced from or by an animal out of principle? We asked him, this is what he said, “No, I’m not vegan but I do think there’s a lot to be said for a plant based diet. And I’m not an animal activist… But I love bees and they’re in trouble. And when the bees are in trouble, we are in trouble”.Read More

How To Make A Container Candle With Soy Wax

SUMMARY
In a nutshell
(for those who won’t read this whole info guide:))

STEP 1: Set up your containers / vessels
Ensure vessel is completely clean and dry before starting. Any residues, dirt and water may affect the end result. Securely fit the wick to the centre of the vessel by using the sticker and pressing down firmly. Centre the wick using the wick holder (paddle pop stick) then gently pull to straighten wick. Use the wooden peg to hold in place.

STEP 2: Melt the wax
Use the double boiler method for melting the wax. A saucepan with water and a glass bowl fitted on top works quite well. Melt so the wax is completely liquid. Use an infrared or mercury thermometer to heat wax to 65°C-85°C. Then pour wax into your pouring jug. Tare the weight of the jug then weigh to measure the amount of wax in grams. We do not recommend using a microwave for melting wax.Read More
