Our candles are crafted exactly the way they were during the Renaissance when machines and automated process were not even thought of. We drip wax on everything, and often you will see our fingerprints on the edges of our hand rolled candles, as we press the wax together along the seam of each candle.
Each of our candles are 100% beeswax or 100% soy wax, NO fillers, No scents, No additives, No stearin, No chemicals, No nothing. The reason we use the term 100% so many times on our site is that there are so many candles advertised as beeswax or soy wax which contain less than or have inexpensive and often harmful additives or chemicals. All of our candles have 100% cotton wicks, NO metal, NO paraffin wax coating (as many wicks are processed this way).
If our candles fail to satisfy you in any way, please return them for a 100% refund, if they wick was too close to the side of the candle and it drips excessively (as sometimes happens) send the candle back with all the drippings and we will send you two candles to replace it. We love you and we love candles, customer service is our main business.
The energy we put into each of our candles is spiritual energy as we are creating these candles for your health and well being. Paraffin is a petroleum product and as such has no health benefits and, in fact, has deleterious effects on you and your stuff.

We are a Seattle family owned and operated candle manufacturer and distributor. We are in West Seattle and hand craft each one of our candles. We sell bees wax candles, soy wax candles, including tapers, tea lights, and pillars. We retail, wholesale, manufacture beeswax and soywax candles. We have been making candles since 1969 when we were based in Boston as the White Cloud Candle Company. Even at that time we were researching the health benefits of Bayberry Wax, Bees Wax, and Soy Wax over the paraffin based waxes found in most grocery stores.
Beeswax and soy wax are pure and contain no petroleum byproducts, nor animal rendered fats that make the paraffin candles so inexpensive. The long term health risks and the smoke damage to your home far outweigh the less expensive nature of paraffin candles.
Paraffin waxes contain highly toxic and carcinogenic petroleum compounds and scented and colored candles pose more of a health risk, please see links below.
All of our candles are scent free (both bees wax and soy wax have a natural sweet scent), color and dye free, and have 100% cotton wicks. We hand craft beeswax and soy wax pillars, tapers, and tea lights.
