Who we are
Weax and Wicks started with the simple premise to make a beautiful, sustainable product that is eco and allergy friendly, without the wasteful packaging and materials used by traditional candle companies.
Our mission is to not only promote the benefits of sustainable, scented beeswax candles, but to also highlight the important work being done in bee conservation and rescue efforts. As part of this mission, we partner with Bee Farmers across America to showcase their passion to our eco-conscious customers. From adopting a hive to supporting local farmers, our customers play an important role in bee conservation.
The Sustainable Promise
When we were looking for candles that people with fragrance allergies could still enjoy, we were frustrated with the amount of packaging and waste that came with a simple candle. That’s when we decided to create our own product-line dedicated to providing both health and environmental benefits with zero consumer waste from the wax to the wick.
The Weax and Wicks Difference
Traditional candles are made from paraffin, a by-product of coal, petroleum, or shale oil. Products made using these fossil fuels are not only unsustainable, they are also bad for your health and the environment.
Weax and Wicks candles use a blend of beeswax and soy which provides excellent adhesion and fragrance throw (hot & cold). This blend does not contain any artificial additives to provide color or improve the burn time of the candle.
Our wax melt products use a combination of blended beeswax and coconut-apricot wax.
Our candles and wax melts get their aromatic scents from natural ingredients, phthalate-free fragrances, and USDA-certified essential oils.
We use a sustainable, wooden wick that is sourced and manufactured in the USA from Forest Stewardship Council FSC-Certified mills. These wooden wicks do not mushroom, have little carbon build up, do not need to be trimmed, and leave no debris during the burn.
The double wick also ensures an even burn throughout the 60 hours of a candle’s burn time.
We use sustainably made glass containers that are manufactured using a hand mould technique. As a result, they are stronger, safe, and provide a greater heat resistance than traditional containers. This allows for a safer candle burn over a longer period of time.
From our sustainable, compostable, durable plant-based packaging materials to our bio-based polymer sugarcane labels, we take packaging our candles in an eco-friendly way seriously. Our recycled tissue paper and fiber pulp paper packaging protect your products from damage without hurting the environment.
