Why you should buy handmade candles from Weax & Wicks

When you’re looking for handmade candles made by small businesses, there are an endless amount of options to choose from.

So what sets Weax & Wicks candles apart from the rest? Well, the answer’s pretty clear.

Here are three reasons why you’d want to buy Weax & Wicks’ handmade candles for your home, or perhaps as a gift for a loved one.

1. Weax & Wicks is big on sustainability

Our candles are made with a combination of beeswax and soy wax, and they feature none of the artificial fragrances you might find in other candles. Our packaging, meanwhile, is made from 100% compostable and plant-based packaging. Weax & Wicks’ goal is to create fully zero waste products, and we’re well on our way to achieving it.

In our founder’s search for better candles, she found that so many options were wasteful in their packaging — in part, that’s how she got her start making candles of her own.

But we don’t stop there. When you recycle your used-up Weax & Wicks candles with us, we’ll even give you 10% off your next purchase. What’s not to love about that?

2. Weax & Wicks focuses on bee rescue and conservation

We understand just how big of an impact bees have on local agriculture and, therefore, the local economy. That’s why 10% of every purchase made from our store goes to bee conservation.

We’ve also partnered with several organizations to help push this initiative even further. One of these partnerships with Project Farmhouse in New York City allows us to work with local restaurants to find better ways to use apiaries for these businesses.

Weax & Wicks has also partnered with Bee Farmers across America to introduce our joint passion to eco-conscious consumers all over the nation. Customers and businesses alike can foster and adopt hives at Queen City Bee co. to support local bee colonies and the farmers they’ve created a symbiotic relationship with.

3. Weax & Wicks offers special bridal packages and services for brides

If you’re a bride-to-be looking for special gifts to offer your wedding guests, our handmade candles may be a great option for you!

Brides can come by our shop for a private consultation and create candles of their own for their special day. In fact, this is one of the most popular parts of our business today.
