100% ALL-NATURAL INGREDIENTS

Our Beeswax Crayons are made using 100% Canadian beeswax, including food-grade pigments, to produce 8 pretty colours. Our crayons are safe for children of all ages and are less harmful than traditional paraffin-based crayons.

Carefully made to fit small hands but thick enough not to break, they are the perfect size to get your little ones making masterpieces of their own!

The white powder on our crayons comes as a result of “blooming”, a natural phenomenon that occurs on beeswax, and is an indication that your crayon is 100% pure beeswax.

Our wooden caddy is a perfect way to store and display your crayons. It also acts as a puzzle-like activity for your child to practice fine-mobility skills and help clean up their colouring area. 

• 8 crayons: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, brown, black

INGREDIENTS

These beeswax crayons are made using a blend of all-natural and food-safe ingredients. They are non-toxic and safer for children to use than traditional paraffin-based crayons in the event of accidental consumption. 

ABOUT BEESWAX

Beeswax is a remarkable natural substance that science still does not fully understand. It is a by-product of honey, which originates in flowers and is made by the youngest honey bees in the colony. These young bees haven't yet become foragers for the plant nectar that ultimately becomes honey. To produce wax, the bees gorge themselves on honey, linking themselves together by the hundreds, and after several hours, the wax begins to flow from pockets on their abdomens. Each bee then scrapes off the wax with their legs and chews it into soft pellets. She then uses them to fashion exquisitely engineered honey-comb cells, with walls of wax that average only 1/100th of an inch thick. This is one of the most efficient storage structures ever developed by any species, including man.

BRAND

Priscilla started her beekeeping journey as a hobby with her children. When they spread their wings and left home, she morphed into a “Queen Bee”, and Made By Bees took flight.

Ultimately Priscilla's curiosity expanded beyond understanding how bee colonies flourish and included learning the critical role they play in global food security. Honeybees pollinate many delicious crops such as fruits and nuts. If bees disappeared, the human diet would be much less diverse and of course, we would miss honey! Collectively bees fly 55,000 miles to make one pound of honey - that's twice around the world! 

Made By Bees which started as a small collaboration with community partners, has blossomed into the lively organization we know today. Located on a pesticide-free property just outside of Brockville, Ontario, it generates sustainable solutions to everyday living and cultivates a bee-friendly haven. 

Taking steps together to save our bees, the planet, and your food.
