Candles made from organic coconut oil and rice bran wax, scented with “organic, wildcrafted, pure essential oils and extracts from plants that were grown without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers…Our hemp wicks contain absolutely no lead, are not chemically treated, and are braided with pure unbleached cotton.” All candles are white and come in many of the standard sizes. Choose from the scented “aromatherapy” collection or unscented “rice bran” collection.
Clean-burning palm oil candles, unscented and scented candles. Throughout the site, these candlemakers have a lot of information about toxic exposures to candles and their decision to make candles out of sustainable palm oil. They have an mission to replace toxic candles in public places (like churches and restaurants) with clean-burning candles, as well has offering a wide variety of palm oil candles in many shapes and sizes for home use. I tried these candles and they burn extremely well. The unscented candles do not have a scent.
Aromatherapy and unscented candles made using only certified organic palm oil, organic coconut oil, organic beeswax, organic essential oils, and organic cotton wicks. “Each candle is handmade and our 100% cotton wicks are braided in our facility as well.”
Unique handmade 100% beeswax candles—cast from sticks, twigs and branches. “We pour our candles one at a time. Originally made as a gift for mom…”The Candles that we are now able to cast, from shapes that we gather, strike me as beautiful and fascinating…when someone tells me about their experience with a candle that I made…It doesn’t point to me. It points to the shape of that cutting. Beauty in Nature.Wow : What Could Be Better Than That ?”
I found this candle company at a local street fair. “All natural soy candles at a price that everyone can enjoy.” All organic 100% soy bean wax, cedar wooden wicks, and organic essential oils for “a fully organic product…Due to the nature of the soy and wood these candles will have a low flame, a more delicate fragrance, and create more of a nightlight effect than the full flame produced by the petroleum and sting of traditional candles.”
Abigail makes candles out of beeswax—“A renewable resource,” she says, “As long as there are bees around us.” And so her mission is to save the bees. “How does burning beeswax candles have anything do with restoring bee populations all over the world? Well, if all the people who love burning candles switched to burning beeswax candles the demand for beeswax would dramatically increase. Wax would not be just a byproduct of honey production, but a major source of income for bee keepers. This economic benefit would stimulate the need for bees, which are the only natural source of wax. Beeswax candles are made from a natural renewable and sustainable resource that supports the cultivation of the honey bee.” Makes sense to me.
Lovely beeswax candles in many colors and shapes, handmade in small batches. “Most of the beeswax we use is collected from Northwest beekeepers, including British Columbia. The crops in this region rank lowest in exposure to pesticides in North America and is the highest quality beeswax available. Our colored beeswax candles are dyed with eco-friendly dyes that do not contain hazardous solvents or additives such as naphtha or naphthalene. All of our wicks are made of 100% cotton and have been primed with beeswax, not paraffin, which many other candle companies (even beeswax candle companies) use. All of our aromatherapy candles are scented with pure essential oils extracted through heat steam distillation or cold-press methods, which are the most natural ways to extract oil from plants.” Also beeswax blocks and bars and all natural body care products made with beeswax.
Solid, natural-color beeswax candles–tapers, round and square pillars, votives, tea lights, and molded ornamental candles. Also beeswax blocks for dipping your own. "We are a couple that keep honey bees in Central Indiana. My wife makes the candles ( shooing me out of the way ) and I take care of the hives… We want to assure you there is only 100% beeswax in the candles (Diane likes to say pure beeswax and a wick.)… Our wicks have no metal. Please take a look at Diane's candles. She spends a great deal of time making them just right."

"Soulshine beeswax candles are created in a peaceful valley of the majestic Blue Ridge Mountains in North Georgia. The candles are created in a workshop located adjacent to a tranquil trout stream where every candle is hand-poured or hand-dipped to ensure the highest level of quality."
These beeswax candles are quite unique and truly magical. They are made by a couple–Iilah and Tawlia–who learned the family craft of candlemaking from Iilah's grandmother, a Medicine Woman and Elder of her clan. When she escaped persecution in the Ukraine and came to Canada, she brought with her the last remains of wildflower beeswax candles. Today, these candles are still made according to old traditions. "As is still practiced today by the Philoxians, it is customary to melt the remains of the old candles into the new pot of wax, showing honour and respect, at cellular levels, for all that was done by our forefathers to get us to where we are
