Medway Candle Crosses the Pond--for Research Purposes

We're putting on our travellin' shoes and taking to the road. England--the home of traditional, hand-made bee skeps, fields of lavender and centuries of herbal and gardening lore, calls out to us. Ok, it's calling in a sort of funny accent, but we're used to that, having spent a lot of time watching BBC.

We're going to do a couple of things on this autumnal venture down the lanes and hedgerows of the Old Country. We're going to check out the landscapes and botany of the place (much of which is similar to our own) and see if we find any eye-opening medicinal herbs that may also be growing under our noses right here at home. We're going to meet some beekeepers (we hope) and learn from them. We may even eat a scone or two, and sample some farm-made cider.

It's an exciting time here at Medway Candle--and for those of you who buy Mike's candles and Lori's creams at the local farmers' markets, don't you worry. After a short hiatus, Mike will be returning to at least one winter market and sometime this winter, you'll even be able to buy candles and essentials from us online. But don't worry: if you run out of beeswax candles or Bee Balm, Bee Serious or Bee Cool before our website's up and running, you can call or email us and we'll make sure to get you the products you need.
