CANDLE INFO


Aloha Bay Richly Scented Candles

In 1993, Aloha Bay began manufacturing and wholesaling hand dipped paraffin tapers, painted with palm wax. Now discontinued, these beautiful tapers proved to be very popular in the gift industry. In 1997, we developed the first 100% Palm Wax™ votives and richly scented jar candles.

Over the years, we have expanded our use of pure essential oils and have become the primary vegetable wax wholesale candle and Himalayan salt lamp supplier to the natural food industry.

Aloha Bay has continued to experiment with every type of vegetable wax (soy, coconut, rice bran, carnauba, candelilla, bayberry, jojoba and even castor oil).

We have found that palm wax makes the best candles especially blended with high concentrations of pure essential oil scents.

Most vegetable waxes (e.g. soy wax) are too soft and oily to be used by themselves, so they are often mixed together with large percentages of palm wax.

We wrote the articles selections on the left menu to explain why we truly believe that Aloha Bay Palm Wax candles are the "Flame of the Future"®.
