The Buzz - What Customers are Saying About Honey Candles
If you've had a unique experience with our candles, we'd love to hear from you! Email us your story:
When I decided to get candles in I only wanted to sell bees wax. I really want to steer completely away from any petroleum products. When looking on your web site and reading about the kind way the bees are treated my search ended.
Delivery of Honey Candles to our home is such an exciting time as it means the real beginning of Christmas and the putting up of Christmas decorations. Thank you so much for such a wonderful candle and for taking such pride in your candles.
We had a power outage not long ago in Richmond and we lit up rooms by burning some really toxic smelling candles we had around the house. We ended up with headaches. That’s when I thought of beeswax candles. Your candles arrived safe and sound.
The package just arrived. I really like the candles; they smell wonderful! The glass cups are perfect too, very clean and versatile. Thanks for offering them on your website. I found your website by searching online. The company from who I purchase candles in the past has gone out of business and I was looking for another supplier. I was looking for several criteria, all of which your company met well: a fragrant amber candle (based on reviews and website images), the ability to order in bulk, the ability to order tealight refills to eliminate waste, a reasonable, cost, uniformity in the product, and an earthy-friendly business. I was also please to learn that your company has longevity and values its employees.
Thank you SO much. I love the personal touch you guys have. Loved looking at the real people in your catalog.
The candles arrived sooner than I expected and were in great condition. They smell soooooo good! Freshest beeswax I've ever purchased. Thank you for your dedication to providing an outstanding product.
Yes, the order arrived promptly and well packaged. I found you through a basic Google search looking for 100% pure beeswax candles in Canada. I knew what I wanted, but didn't know where I would be able to find a quality product locally (I'm sure they are around, but an online search is faster and easier). I also knew I wanted something better than the mass-marketed petroleum-based candles. There are still some people that are willing to seek out and buy quality, and I'm glad there are still a few manufacturers out there that recognize that.
I just want to say I am really happy with our transaction, the price was very fair and shipping was fast. I am in the middle of starting a company so I have to deal with my share of disrespectful companies and I must say I was very happy to deal with a company so nice as yours. I look forward to working with you and your company again.
Your candles arrived yesterday in Banff. What a joy to open the box!!!! Thank you so much for your lovely note and the beautiful catalogue. A friend was over for supper last night and the timing of the candle arrival could not have been better. We enjoyed some wonderful hours at the dinner table in the glow of your beautiful candles. And the absolutely divine smell transported me right back into my childhood in Switzerland where we always had beeswax candles burning on our x-mas tree!
I have used beeswax candles for years because they clean the air. I need enough candles for the tables at our anniversary party. I have asthma and usually at big gatherings I have problems breathing. I am hoping the candles at every table will help keep the air clean for all 200 of our guests. Jan got back to us two months later: Because of the beeswax candles used at our anniversary party I was able to talk normally and breathe easily throughout most of the evening. Usually at a big gathering of over 200 people like that I only last about an hour. We lit the candles around 4 PM and they were still going when we packed up at midnight!
Jonny is a volunteer for The Lower Mainland Green Team and he received his Honey Candles Tealight pack as a show of appreciation. He asked the Team to share this message with us: Those tealights came very handy a few weeks ago when I was on the Sunshine Coast. A storm knocked down the powerlines and we were left in the dark for two days. As we began to run out of common tealights very fast I remembered the two passed to me at the Rivers Day Event at BCIT. We lit ‘em up and they not only lasted the rest of the night and totally lifted the air in the suite – we could have easily gotten a couple more nights out of them. Not only am I switching to these beeswax tealights, I’m recommending them as they produce less waste, the air doesn’t get heavy with a couple lit and to boot, they have a refreshingly natural scent. Please pass on my thanks to the donors! Their candles went such a long way:)
Your candles are beautiful. I will definitely place another order ‘in a heartbeat’. Many thanks for the exemplary customer service.
I received the candles. Gorgeous!!! the smell is so beautiful. Already sold a pair before even getting a price on them! thank you!
Our shipment of Honey Candles arrived ahead of schedule, in great condition…and the products were exactly as represented. The Thank You card was a nice touch! We’re thrilled to be able to include your candles in our Christmas gift baskets. Thanks again for your excellent service and product. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to our friends and family.
My case of beeswax Honey Candles Votives arrived and I am so, so happy. I got them before Christmas when I wasn’t sure I would. It made that week special.
My order did arrive safe and sound and I’m very happy with it as always. I’ve been burning Honey Candles from you for some time now. I work for a home builder and as part of my Housewarming gift I enclose a package of a few tealights and votives to them!
It's nice to get your e-mail asking about my order. It looks like your company takes pride in such a fine product. I have burned just a few of the candles so far, but they are just what I was hoping for. Many years ago (like in the late 70s), I lived in western Montana and there was a local company that made beautiful beeswax candles. I bought a lot of them, and gave many away as gifts. I still have one last pair left, and it hit me that perhaps I could find them online. I wanted the purity and the wonderful smell of the pure beeswax. I Googled beeswax candles and it didn't take too long to see your company had exactly what I was searching for (I never found the old Montana name). They are just what I was looking for - the pure beeswax is such an appealing thing. I love the smell, and even to look at them. I am so happy that I found your products. And I appreciate that your website is so thorough with so many good pictures and details of each candles. That was a big help in trying to figure out what to get. Thank you all for such a wonderful product!!
I found you on-line while looking for Advent candles made of beeswax. I found yours, and they were exactly what I was looking for.
I was looking for a Canadian store where I can find a large selection of beeswax candles to offer this Christmas to my family. I was looking for 100% natural candles that do not cause headaches or nausea after the smell fills the room. Your Mulled Spice votives smell delicious!
My fiancee heard about your candles when she received some as a wedding shower gift. We ordered some more to feature at our wedding reception. Thanks for supplying such a nice product.
My Honey Candles arrived and I have put them to good use already and LOVING them so far. I was touched that you thought to include and thank-you card as well. The little things mean so much!
The candles arrived in good time and great shape. they are beautiful. I've always wanted to have more beeswax candles for my prayer corner and figured buying in bulk would be the best deal.
The order arrived safe and sound and the candles are ‘heavenly’. Thanks so much for the product, your candle caring blogs and the excellent service.
The candles arrived in good condition and everything was packed nicely. It got even better when I opened the thank you note and the candle burning tips. I appreciate that. I must say I am pleasantly surprised and appreciative of the efforts you have made to have a personal touch with my shopping experience with you. From the e-mail note confirming my order, to the thank you note, and now this e-mail, I am delighted to have supported your business! Have a great day!
This is my second order and I am just as impressed as with my first order. The order arrived very quickly and the candles were in perfect condition. Your company provides excellent customer service and follow up. As a consumer, it is always great to feel that a company appreciates your business. Your website has a great feel to it. Even though shopping on-line, I feel like I am purchasing from a local merchant. I look forward to my next order!
Just letting you know that I received my votives this afternoon. I’m already burning several of them, and my home is filled with a golden light, and that absolutely wonderful scent of beeswax and essentials oils from the Kootenay Forest...all due to your amazing votives.
I have two Alabaster (rare orange) candle lamps that require a bright tealight candle. The artist that I purchased them from recommended pure beeswax. I’ve tried other ‘pure’ beeswax but yours is by far the one with the best brightness and is clean burning. You’ve got a great product and a fabulous personal style in doing business.
Yes, the order arrived safe and sound and we tend to have at least one going pretty much every day. In fact, my partner Marlene who is the candle queen suggested we should have ordered 2 cases at once. Next time.
My candles arrived and in perfect shape. I love them! I have to tell you I have tried beeswax candles from different companies after my first order but, even though your candles are more expensive, they ended up being my favorite and I have to reorder:).
Pat I want to thank you for getting the order to me so quickly. Amazing. Very well packed. You do have the best quality candles in North America and your service matches that.
The candles are great! I am very impressed with your service and the fact that you seem to genuinely care about what your company stands for.
Indeed my candles arrived very quickly and in excellent condition. I immediately placed the square pillar in its appointed holder (a lovely lantern) and we have been enjoying it regularly. The votives were also put to use right away…they are, I believe, the best candles I have ever used.
I just received my first order from Honey Candles, but it won't be my last because I am totally pleased. The candles themselves are beautiful and the quality that goes into producing them is obvious. The packaging is excellent and the little extras such as the match book plus all the info provided on candle care has made the whole purchasing experience a joy! Many thanks!
The beewax candles from Honey Candles are the best candles I've ever used.
Recently I ordered some candles from this company. The quality and design were superb and delivery was prompt. I was also impressed with the follow up to make sure all was satisfactory. Highly recommend.
It was a Chritmas gift She loved it
Love the sweet smell of these candles!
Customer service is excellent and prompt. Will order again!
All arrived in good shape and reasonable time! Thankyou.
Love your candles !
The products ordered are great and thank you for the little treat inside, it was a nice surprise.
Delivery took longer than forecasted but I think that had more to do with the time of year than anything else.
We'll be ordering again in the near future for sure.
Happy New Year!
I love the gentle scent of the Kootenay Forest candles, and I have nothing but good experiences ordering from Honey Candles; I receive my orders promptly and in good condition.
Very pleased with the candles. They did indeed burn so beautifully over the Holiday season. If you aren't familiar with pure beeswax candles do take the time to read and follow the directions for taking care of them. It is well worth that little bit of effort so they burn properly and last.
I can only end by saying I will be ordering more.
I prefer to use glass for less waste for sure. Plus the little nibs underneath the holders were a very nice surprise as mentioned by a previous reviewer.
My products arrived very nicely packaged; shipping from the west coast to the east coast without any damage. A hand written thank you and tip cards for proper burning techniques were included. I had already read on the website but it was nice to include for those that hadn't read on-line. I will keep these handy for future purchases. I always purchase natural beeswax candles for our home and sometimes they are difficult to find so I went on-line and searched to find Honey Candles ....... and Canadian! Very pleased.
Honey candles are the ones I use regularly. It’s great product and I appreciate that it’s a BC product, using local materials as much as possible.
It didn’t arrive swiftly however that was due to a backlog at the post office. When I contacted Honey candles about this I was responded to in a timely and good manner and they tracked down the candles and soon they arrived. Thank you for you help in that Jill. I will definitely buy again from this company and recommend it. Thank you, k
The best beeswax candles
Well Done Honey Candles! Thank you for the timely and safe delivery of products ordered. Grateful for the opportunity to support and buy outstanding quality made in Canada products that I will continue to order in the future.
These are truly beautiful candles and the natural scent is addicting. It was a bonus knowing that these candles were made and sourced from families businesses in Canada.
Yule Tree Forest Green Beeswax Candle
I was desperate to get a set of candles for my Advent wreath but wanted beeswax for their environmental sustainability and clean burning. They are remarkably hard to find, and definitely not available in stores. Hunting online for a local Canadian supplier I found your site with its beautiful, simple candles, got a perfect set that were shipped promptly and arrived incredibly fast. (That was a pleasant surprise given how slow shipping has been this pandemic Christmas season.) While these candles are more expensive than cheap non-beeswax they are completely worth the extra cost. The candles are exactly as described, beautiful, burn very nicely, and have the loveliest gentle, slightly sweet natural scent. I'll be ordering from you again, and recommending you to others. Thank you!
I happened to find the red tapers at a shop in Vancouver and thought I'd try them for Christmas. They were so superior to any other candles I had used. They were very long burning, did not drip or make a mess, and looked beautiful. This Christmas, I also had an Advent Wreath which came with it's own very inferior candles. They burned down in no time, even though we're supposed to re-light them. So I've ordered a package of Advent candles from Honey for next year. I've also ordered some more red tapers as I want to make sure I have them for next Christmas.
I bought some Honey votive candles for myself and as gifts for Christmas, I was amazed at the length of time these votives burned, I lit one for two and a half hours each day for three days and still had some left. The scents were calming and not at all overbearing, The instructions that came with them were followed and worked perfect for me. I love burning candles especially in the winter months and now I finally found Beeswax ones.
They smell divine and burn beautifully. They arrived well-packaged and in perfect condition. I really appreciated the follow-up emails and love that I am able to support a Canadian business!
Large, natural fresh local beeswax candles that fill the room with a sweet honey scent. They were nicely wrapped and delivered promptly. I highly recommend these candles!
Bought these as a Christmas gift for someone. She loved them due to the burn time and smell. Great customer service as well with fast shipping (not their fault for delays) and they through in two tree/ bee hive sort of shaped candles.
Would recommend these guys!
I ordered the above for my younger sister for Christmas and she is enjoying it very much.
No odor. Nice colours.
