The Bee Man

A picture of some pretty candles in this month’s issue of House Beautiful caught my eye…

I loved the shapes and colors so I went searching and found The Bee Man Candles…

Brian Howell, aka The Bee Man, has been around for quite some time and I found a great article in Martha Stewart Living that enlightened me about his business.

His candle-making started with a childhood interest in beekeeping.  At age 11, Brian began his campaign for acquiring a beehive and after that he was off and buzzing!…

He relates a cute story about his mother admonishing him not to use the oven for candle making while she was out of the house.  He used the microwave instead and apparently caused quite an explosion!

His parents now work along with him in his workshop in Canastota, New York.  The Bee Man has been in business for over two decades (how did I miss this?)  He is selling about 100,000 candles every year…

 A more recent venture is a learning center where the community can glean knowledge about the importance of honeybees in the ecosystem.  He’s hoping that some students will catch the bug!
