Howdy, from our hearts to your home.
We don’t mind telling you, our family is obsessed with beeswax.
We use grand-daddy’s beekeeping tools to burnish each candle we make by hand. We think of our work as a beautiful collaboration between people and bees.
Each step in our hand-crafted process is designed to bring out the natural beauty and healthy burning properties of the 100% pure beeswax we get from Texas beekeepers.
Here’s how we hand-craft the candles you love.
We begin by making friends with local Texas beekeepers. After each honey flow — the time of biggest honey production for busy bees — we head out to collect combs bees no longer need.
We gently melt raw beeswax and siphon off impurities — even down to the size of a grain of pollen. As we do, our shop fills with honeyed scents from Texas wildflowers, fragrant prairie grasses, citrus, herbs — and even tantalizing hints of wild berry.
To craft a quality candle, you’ve got to know your beeswax. Some candles require a slow hand. Others get persnickety if kept waiting. We hand-pour each of ours according to temperament — in molds we’ve collected or built over the years.
Before we send our candles off into the world, we take the time to add one more artisan touch. Using simple beekeeping tools handed down from grand-daddy, we burnish each candle by hand. Once again, our shop fills with the natural aromas you’ll enjoy when you burn your 100% pure beeswax candle at home. Ahh …
What about leftover beeswax candle stubs or scraps?
Whatever we do, we strive to put every bit of beeswax to good use. Between our beeswax recipes and our beeswax recycling program, you can do the same.
We happily accept your beeswax donations. Once we’ve collected enough donated beeswax, we carefully clean it and pour fresh candles that we give to charitable organizations right here in Texas.
