Wildflower honey is a medium colored,full flavored honey produced from a
variety of fall blooming flowers,including goldenrod aster and others. It is
a pleasant tasting honey good for table use and baking.
Our honey is not pressure-filtered with diatomaceous earth as
is the honey you buy in the supermarket. That type of filtering is necessary
in order to give the resulting product the long shelf life needed by the supermarket,
but we believe that flavor, character and nutrients are sacrificed to obtain
that long shelf life. Our liquid honey is never heated above 130F, and it is
filtered only enough to remove the impurities such as bees' wings and bits of
leaves. Does this make it "raw"? Not if you define raw as "direct
from nature". It is our opinion that anyone who calls his or her liquid
or creamed honey raw is misleading the consumer. The only really raw honey is
comb honey. If our liquid honey crystallizes (turns solid), which happens to
all honey that has not been ovenheated, place it in a pan of warm water until
the honey is again liquid.

This gift set contains 8 ounces of pure Maine Wildflower
Honey, and a 4 ½ tall beeswax candle in the form of the
Maine State Flower, the pine cone. Nothing quite tastes like the honey
made from the wild flowers in the meadows of Maine. I think the sea
air helps! Use the crate for storing your cassette tapes, too.

Beeswax Candles and Ornaments
Most beeswax is yellow because it contains pollen and the gums and resins
that bees collect. Pollen is the adult honey bee's source of protein and they
collect it in great quantity. The gums and resins, which beekeepers call "propolis," are used to varnish the inside of the bee's nest. Both pollen and propolis are
generally yellow or red though either may be many colors. The fragrant scent
of beeswax and the pleasant scent produced by burning candles is also largely
due to these substances, especially propolis.
The fragrance from beeswax candles when burning acts as a natural environmentally
safe air freshener. Beeswax candles burn cleaner than petroleum-based waxes
and are dripless and smokeless.
