Barring bad weather, urban beekeepers in Seoul take care of their bees just like farmers take care of their land.
Their treasured honey bees collect nectar and make it into beeswax. These tiny amounts of beeswax produced by each bee ultimately make up a big honeycomb.
The beeswax candles made in this class are the same type of candles that were even used during ancient times. This specific type of candle has been used for a long time for its positive effects on blood circulation, stability of the mind and body, as well as air quality.
Nowadays, we often get both, mentally and physically tired from our fast-paced lifestyles. At APE Seoul, you can take a break from your busy life and use this time to relax as you make beeswax candles. You’ll feel much lighter after chatting with others in the warm candlelight.
