Honey and other products from our hives

IMG_2161_1

Honey bees provide a number of materials that are useful in our everyday lives. At Brightwell Bees, we not only gather honey, but also make use of the beeswax. All our honey is local, and comes from our own hives in Oxfordshire and West Berkshire. We extract spring honey from the comb in May, and again during late July for summer honey. Our honey is available as both clear "runny" honey and soft set forms, however if you want to find out more about the differences (or not) between runny and set honey read more here.

Our beeswax comes principally from the wax cell cappings which is produced when we uncap honey frames before honey extraction. Beeswax has a multitude of uses, and whilst it is frequently used to make fine candles, it is also widely used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and wood furniture polish.
