If you notice small differences in our products it is because we make everything by hand and try to source locally. So for instance I noticed that our latest batch of Tattoo Salve is yellower than the last batch. That is because we have a new batch of deliciously golden beeswax from Warm Colors Apiary in South Deerfield and although we have used their beeswax before this particular batch is quite yellow. Who knows perhaps the bees this summer were out collecting from new fields or perhaps the flowers were loaded with pollen. We love it and hope you do too.
