About this Business
YYC Beeswax is a Calgary-based company offering a range of ready-made small batch beeswax products and educational opportunities.
We exist to (re)connect people with their creativity and the beauty of nature. Growing up in rural Alberta, I was fortunate to live close to nature and observe the beauty of the Alberta prairies. It was a new adventure to move to Calgary for university and explore an urban environment. As wonderful as it was to have better access to the arts, I still missed the quality of nature found by living rural. As YYC Beeswax grows and evolves, I feel like I’m getting closer to balancing having the availability of art in the city and the rural beauty of nature. Every product we make and each time we educate, we aim to merge these two.
YYC Beeswax offers a variety of products with one rule – every product must contain something harvested from a beehive or themed accordingly. From candles to our extremely popular lip balm and food wraps to DIY supplies, you can tell we have fun creating. In addition to offering products, we also run workshops in which we make candles and teach our participants a bit about bees (sometimes we even have special joint venture workshops with other small businesses too!). We are also available for private events such as corporate team building, birthday parties, bachelorettes, and more.
We are happy to accept custom orders for personal, corporate, or special events such as weddings. Our high quality products are carefully hand crafted with locally sourced materials where possible.
