Vegetable wax candles burn longer, smoother and without the
soot of beeswax and paraffin candles, not to mention there are no
harmful solvents from petroleum based ingredients. Pure cotton
wicks have no toxic lead or zinc traces when they burn, and these
9” tall tapers have a long burn time of 8-10 hours each. Available
packs of 4 in White or Natural. $5.99 per
regarding the palm wax in these candles - there has been
some concern over the harvesting of the palm wax and the plight of
the orangutan native to Indonesia who has lost some of its home to
deforestation. Aloha Bay has assured us that the palm wax that they
use is harvested on plantations that are eco-friendly and do not
contribute to this problem. Some other companies may still use
clear-cutting which can damage the orangutan's habitat, and Aloha
Bay refuses to use palm wax derived in this manner.
I love these candles!!!

They burn slow and don't smoke when you put them out. Highly recommend.

I ordered a pack of the white candles, and I have to say these are decidedly the best taper candles I've ever used! They look good, they feel good (unlike many other candles which I find greasy to the touch), they even smell good - though these candles do not release any scent when burning. When you light them, they burn for a long time with a bright flame, with no visible soot production! They don't drip. They're vegan, fair-traded and as environmentally friendly as candles can get (unless you had them airmailed transatlantically like me :-S - then you should better look for a local retailer). The only downside I can possibly think of is that they're a bit more expensive than fossil fuel candles, even if you take the increased brightness and burn time into account. But in my opinion the many advantages are well worth that little price difference.
Love these candles...

These burn so beautifully and cleanly. Gorgeous glow from the flame.

Beautiful candles for the holiday season. They are pretty to see, they burn evenly, smoke-free, and provide a wonderful warm light at 1/3 the price of beeswax!
