I would just like to give a brief introduction of myself and my work. My name is Frances Murphy and I live in Rochestown but I am originally from Bere Island in West Cork, I was reared on a farm where we kept lots of Beehives and grew lots of plants for them so that is where I got the brand idea.
I am an Aromatherapist and Reflexologist for 15 years and it is my passion for the healing and therapeutic benefits of Essential Oils that led me to develop my own range of sustainable candles. I found it hard to buy natural candles to use in my treatment room and I don’t like fake fragrances so I started to make my own a few years ago using Essential oils and it developed from there with my clients ordering them from me.
The name on my brand is Bee Kind Candles and they all have Bee in the name such as Bee Sleepy, Bee Happy, Bee Clear, Bee Zesty, Bee Calm, Xmas Bee etc, (photos attached ), I use the same names and scents in my wax melts .
I also make Natural Beeswax candles in a pillar candle shape and various molds as well as rolled beeswax candles which are great for clearing the air and have a beautiful natural scent of their own as well as being non toxic.
My candles are made with a blend of Rapeseed and Coconut wax which are both natural and sustainable and give a lovely clean burn and also bees love rapeseed flowers which was a big factor in my choice.
