When I was selling at Bard College the other week, another vendor I checked out was Lizzy Bird. Lizzy Bird creator, Elizabeth Bryant, makes pure beeswax candles, and botanical bath & body products made with fine, simple organics and wildcrafted ingredients. I should have included this shop in my Hudson Valley Gift Guide last month as they're based in Red Hook, NY.
I was attracted to her super cute molds and bright colors which included honeybees, pinecones, Buddhas (not included in her Etsy shop).
Aren't these adorable? You almost don't want to light them. Her candles are 100% natural beeswax from established northeast US beekeepers and uses organic cotton wicks. The candles are not scented other than it's natural honey scent.
We picked up a little red tree for our home decor Christmas collection....
Love it! Each candle is made individually and are smokeless, dripless, and non-allergenic. You can never go wrong giving a candle as a gift any time of the year. You can find her Etsy shop at lizzybirdshop.etsy.com.
