Root Candles has a rich history dating back to over 140 years. We began manufacturing bee supplies in 1869 and remain actively engaged in the bee keeping business.
As you may have heard, a few years ago the White House installed a beehive, on the South Lawn. Did you know that our Bee Culture Magazine Editor, Kim Flottum has actively worked with Charlie Brandts, the beekeeper of the White House hive? Kim and Charlie formed a special relationship creating a bountiful hive. As a Thank You, the White House sent Root Candles beeswax from that very hive! We have used this wax to create these beautiful beeswax taper candles!
We have 2 sets of White House Beeswax Tapers to give to 2 very lucky winners! On Facebook, under the comments section of the link to this blog, tell us, in one word, why you are Proud to be American! We will enter all names into a drawing and pick the winner Monday, January 21.
