Bee Well With Big Dipper Candles

Downtown Walnut Creek Ace Hardware takes pride in the large selection of quality candles that we carry. Scent, appearance, and ingredients are always taken into consideration before anything is brought in. One popular company in particular, Big Dipper Wax Works, exemplifies this. The Washington-based business launched in 1993, when a vision was brought to full fruition. They have now devoted thirty years to crafting handmade, 100% pure beeswax candles.
Big Dipper is committed to wellness and sustainability, proven by the ingredients they embrace, as well as the ones they reject. Such as Paraffin, which continues to appear in candles despite the toxic chemicals that are released when they burn. Many “clean” companies will often use palm as an alternative to paraffin. However, this substitute is not nearly as environmentally friendly nor high quality as beeswax. Beeswax candles burn clean, are soot free, and release negative ions that cleanse the air. Those negative ions have positive effects, as they can help with asthma, allergies, and sinus infections. Another benefit of beeswax is the natural scent due to the flower nectar that bees pollinate. This fragrance is a sweet, honey-like aroma.
Need another reason to love Big Dipper? The company donates 5% of net profits from all candle sales to organizations dedicated to promoting sustainable beekeeping and environmental conservation. Big Dipper believes that their candles are perfect for anyone who cares about their own health and the health of the environment.
