This teapot ornament was handcrafted and will last for years. It has a light honey scent from the honey left in the comb after the honey is extracted which we have enhanced with the aroma of Chai. The art of molding wax is a centuries old German tradition. German bakers first created beeswax ornaments using wooden cookie molds and museums in Europe display ornaments which are 300 years old.
Beeswax can develop a hazy, powdery film known as bloom. When this happens warm the wax with a blow drier and it will become shiny again or wash it with warm water and dry with a soft cloth. Beeswax will not melt in your home as it has a melting point of 142F.
Beeswax is beautiful to smell and touch and these carefully handcrafted ornaments are things of beauty and a reminder of our connection to the natural world.
