Dial up the ambiance by dimming down the lights. Unique beeswax candles cast an all-natural glow that is soft and golden, perfect for setting the scene at a dinner party or get-together. The tapers burn cleanly—so there’s no soot, toxins, or allergens—and have a light, natural aroma. Each one can burn for over 12 hours—lasting much longer than your guests. (We hope.)

My brother has allergies and won't let my sister in law burn scented candles. I bought 4 tapers and 2 lotus and gave the tapers and one of the lotus to her. We are both very pleased. They burn evenly and we like the lotus design.More > < Less

About Big Dipper

The Bees Knees

Bring some all-natural light to the table with unique beeswax candles. Big Dipper Candles are handmade in the USA from pure beeswax, which casts a soft, golden glow when lit. The aroma is very light and natural, and they last a surprisingly long time.

Unlike other candles, these burn cleanly, and are non-toxic, non-allergenic, and soot-free. While burning, they release negative ions—which actually reduces pollutants and helps clean the air. A pair of the elegant tapers is the perfect dinner party accent, and the spherical candles feature eye-catching designs created by artists.

Founder Brent Roose began making candles all the way back in 1993, inspired by gazing up at the Big Dipper in the night sky. He’s still working with beeswax today, and pitches in to help support sustainable beekeeping, too. We think that’s the bee’s knees.
