It all started with a swarm of bees.
Amos Ives Root was inspired to start a beekeeping business when a swarm of bees landed on the window of his jewelry store. That simple event created a company that has become synonymous with beekeeping, honey, pure beeswax, and the highest quality candles. Today, we still rely on the purity and naturalness of beeswax and bees that inspired Amos Ives Root.
From our all-natural beeswax blend, to our fragrances containing essential oils, to natural fiber wicks that are braided on-site, each Root Candle is crafted with perfection using only the purest of ingredients to bring you a candle burning experience unlike any other.
