About Us

How it all began...the-team-copy.jpg

In 2003 we started wick'd bean candles after learning about the awesome environmental benefits to be made by burning a petroleum-free candle. Starting out in our kitchen we made small batches of our soy wax candles and sold them at local farmer's markets and festivals introducing customers to just one more way to help perserve our planet.

Today our family continues to hand pour all our candles and we ae excited to offer a clean and healthy candle burning alternative.

An added little fun fact…customers telll us that because of the silky feel of the soybean oil they regularly use the melted natural wax as a moisturizer on their hands, elbows and feet!

 

MORE ABOUT US AND OUR CANDLES...

  • wick'd bean candles are made from natural soybeans and complimented with the purest of botanical oils and scented with the highest quality essential and fragrance oils.
  • They are biodegradable, contain no pesticides or herbicides, and burn cleaner, longer and cooler than paraffin candle waxes.
  • The cotton wicks we use work especially well in natural waxes and minimize smoke with proper care.
  • We hand pour our candles in the U.S. and are proud to support American farmers by using wax made from domestically grown crops.
  • At wick'd bean candles we recognize the importance of providing our customers with the best possible quality soy wax candle while at the same time being sensitive to the growing concern for our environment.

 

A FEW CANDLE BURNING TIPS...

  • To avoid tunneling burn candle until melted wax reaches inside edge of container (i.e. one hour per inch of candle-example 3"x3" candle approximate burn minimum 3 hrs).
  • Wicks should be kept centered...if wick bends extinguish candle, trim to 1/4" and gently reposition.
  • To avoid smoking when extinguishing candle dip lit wick (using nonflammable object) in melted wax. Straighten wick and you are ready for next lighting.

 

TRY SOME OF THESE REPURPOSING IDEAS...
Because soy wax cleans up with hot water and soap you can reuse any of our containers...

Ideas include...

  • plant a succulent/bulb in the glass and regift...
  • re-label top of tin and use to store small items (i.e. paper/hair clips, tacks or pins)...
  • glass votive jars can be refilled with a 2oz votive candle...
