Helpful Tips

We want you to get the most out of your Bee Happy Farmhouse products

so we created some helpful tips in caring for your honey, soaps & candles below.

Honey - Liquid Gold

Keeping your honey in it's syrupy state

Sometimes honey thickens and creates honey crystals in your jar. This is normal - don't toss your honey! Honey never spoils. You can use this thicken honey in your tea, oatmeal, and by the spoonful just as it is. But, if you are like me and like to have your honey nice and gooey, here is the simplest method I have found:

1.  Fill a small pot with water- only about 1 to 2 inches of water.

2. Put your honey (in a glass container - no lid) in to your pot of water.

3. Place pot on stove and turn your burner on to the lowest setting.

4. The honey will slowly melt back to liquid.

5. Once honey is back to its original state - turn your burner off and let sit for a few hours to return back to room temperature.


   - be sure to keep watch on your honey to be sure you don't run out of water

   - don't add too much water - you may accidentally get water in your honey

   - be patient - don't try to hurry the process by turning up your stove or putting it in the microwave - you may burn and ruin your honey

   - gently stir as needed

Soap Care

Extending the life of your soap

Our artisan handcrafted soaps are a bit different than store-bought soaps. They are a bit more sensitive to heat and moisture. To extend the life of your soap, keep your bar(s) in a cool, dry place. Don't let your soap sit in water or it might dissolve a bit quicker than you might like. It is best if soap is stored in an open tray that has the ability to keep the soap lifted out of any water drainage and gives the soap time to completely dry out before your next use.

Candle Care

Getting the most burn time out of candles

Here are some simple tips to care for your candles and getting the maximum burn time from them:

  • When burning your candles, be sure to give them enough time to melt the wax all the way to the outer edges. If you start and stop your candles without a good melt pool, your candles will end up with a tunnel down to the bottom of your jar. Your candle will have wax remaining on the sides with no more wick to burn.

  • Keep your candle lid on when not in use - this will hold the aroma in the candle.

  • Trim your wick prior to burning - your candle is ready to light upon arrival, but each time after you burn it, it's best to remove the excess wick and trim to 1/4 inch. This helps to keep soot and debris out of your candle.

  • Keep your candle on a flat surface and out of reach of children and pets. Don't leave a candle unattended or let burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
