Bees

 The Bee is born at the same time as human...

 

It works for the entire hive, and is part of the swarm. Without the whole, it is nothing.....

Its action follows a very precise order, that it respects with enthusiasm...if it can communicate with the others, it is not to question what it has to do....

 

It works tirelessly with courage...

 

It produces honey, pollen, propolis, royal jelly, wax....all what is useful and indispensable....

It is equipped with different tools according to what it has to do: until the 21 st day, it is by turns: cleaner, nurse, bricklayer, guardian...it prepares the space of the hive, strengthens it, protects it...It can then dance until the end of its life as a pollen-gathering....It makes coming and going from the hive...when it goes away from it, it finds its bearings with the position of the sun...

 

When it notices a food, this one is not for its personal stomach at first...but for the community crop... it will bring back to the hive what it has put in reserve...

It is also capable of creativity, to be adjusted to new situations...

 

What will make a worker or a queen, is the food...honey + pollen for the worker which lives 40 days, royal jelly for the queen which lives 4 years....

 

Bee can also enlighten us to find again our true RESIDENCE...

 

...To make candles ?...

….it is really very simple....


 

Ingredients :

 

Beeswax

Wick for candle

For the candle, I take small glass pot....in it the light radiates

more than in a earthenware pot….

Few pieces of wood, cut at the size you want, to maintain the wick

A pan that you will use only for that...

A spoon or equivalent….


 

Recipe:

 

Prepare near the pan on the fire...the glass pots, the pieces of wood, the pieces of wicks cut twice the height of the glass pot...

 

Make melt the wax in the pan, as soon as it is a bit liquid,

dip a piece of wick in it and stuck it on the bottom of the glass pot (to do it, I take the aid of the spoon), then pour out the wax in the glass pot and wind up the end of the wick round the piece of wood, while paying attention to keep the wick in the center.

 

Then....it is the experience which permits to each one to be more precise with his technique....a too hot wax unsticks the wick fixed at the bottom of the glass pot...etc....
