I have a deep love of candles so I'm always on the look out for natural toxin free varieties. I purchased some of the natural beeswax candles made by residents of Camphill Village Trust . The candles are beautifully made and have been a joy to burn. I never need an excuse to buy more candles but as the darker nights draw in the beeswax candles are such a welcome addition and make the transition out of summer that little bit easier.
