Raw Adirondack Wildflower Honey Tasting and Beeswax Candle Giveaway at the Adirondacks Welcome Center
June 24 @ 9:00 am - June 25 @ 5:00 pmFree
Queensbury, NY — As part of the I LOVE NY Summer Tour, the Adirondacks Welcome Center will be hosting a Raw Adirondack Wildflower Honey tasting and beeswax candle giveaway sponsored by the Mohawk Valley Trading Company on June 24th & 25th from 9am-5pm.
Honey has been used by humans for thousands of years for its health benefits and as a sweetener and flavoring for many foods and beverages. However, if it is to be used for its health-benefits, it must be raw honey since heating honey (pasteurization) destroys the all of the pollen, enzymes, propolis, vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants and aromatics.
According to the Scientific American: “Organic honey isn’t impossible. It’s just beyond of the ability of most beekeepers. Bee yards situated in isolated spots deep in the Adirondacks, or mountain valleys in sparsely-populated New Mexico, can probably pull off honey free of agrochemicals. Most beekeepers operate within a bee’s flight of pesticides, however, making “organic” honey an illusory proposition.”
Mohawk Valley Trading Company Raw Adirondack Wildflower Honey is in the same condition as it was in the hive, and although it is not labeled organic honey, it is as organic as you can get from honey produced in the United States.
100% Pure Beeswax Candles
Unfortunately, most people who burn candles are unaware of the dangers of burning petroleum-based paraffin (a sludge and waste product from the refining of petroleum) and scented candles which produce highly toxic fumes and soot when burned. The soot and highly toxic fumes released into the air by burning paraffin wax are the same as those found in burning diesel fuel.
Beeswax candles have been used by humans since prehistoric times and are one of the oldest sources of artificial light. Unlike paraffin candles, they do not contain any additives, synthetic chemicals or produce highly toxic fumes and soot when burned. Beeswax candles are made from the melted and filtered caps that seal the honeycomb and have their own natural honey/floral scent even when not burning.
