Mellisa makes wax fruit. A love for early inspired homes plus a fascination with aromatic candle wax led Melissa Axel to become a chandler of early influenced candles. She started creating in an old apple drying house on the family apple farm along the shores of Lake Ontario- Sodus Point New York. There she honed skills using herb infused paraffin to make one of a kind aromatic candles. Melissa discovered a love for beeswax castings she formed inside antique vintage or reproduction molds. Today, old fashioned bartering with the village beekeeper. Melissa creates beeswax fruits from the cozy confines of her studio in an old one room school house.
