For those of you who are familiar with my blog, you are probably well aware that I’m big on supporting local and small businesses. (Hence my shop local series.) I recently discovered a local candle company called Olive Bean & Co. that I instantly became obsessed with – I just had to learn more and get my hands on some product!
The more I learned about the products, the more I fell in love. The owner, Amanda, is an advocate for holistic health and Olive Bean & Co. is actually an extension of her holistic lifestyle brand, Honestly Nourish, where she shares healthy recipes and promotes healthy living from the inside out all while locally sourcing products and ingredients where possible.
The candles Amanda creates are hand-poured made from beeswax, coconut oil and therapeutic grade essential oils. The wicks are made out of 100% natural cotton. She has also recently begun offering candle-making workshops. The beeswax used to create the candles are even locally sourced from a beekeeper in Durham Region, how incredible is that?!
