Big Moon Beeswax is a private candle studio on Camano Island, in the Island County of Washington State. It is built around creating uniquely designed, high quality beeswax candles and accessories, while promoting a healthy lifestyle, and giving back.
Big Moon Beeswax is my second ‘official’ company. My previous business (H2O4K9 Inc.) was in the pet industry. Back in 2009, I had invented a line of travel water bottles for dogs and sold internationally. Working with big companies, small companies, foreign companies, overseas suppliers, and more, became more work than it was worth. In 2017 I made a choice to focus on creating things that are locally sourced, that I could maintain a high-quality standard, and find a way to make a positive change in my community.
Starting a beeswax candle company was not the first company concept on my agenda, but like life has a way, we sometimes end up in places we never dreamed of going. I’m a product developer by education and trade, so when a candle-maker asked me to design custom candle accessories, it was just the kind of thing I loved to do! Starting Big Moon Beeswax has allowed me to team up with experienced candle makers, and together we create beautiful, 100% pure beeswax, hand-crafted candles and accessories for beeswax candle lovers.
It all starts with the beeswax. Here in the Pacific Northwest, we are blessed with some of the best beeswax on our continent. We work directly with local apiaries, getting to hand select our wax and ensure the wax is the highest quality, and that we are supporting the beekeepers within our region.
All our candles are made from 100% Pure Beeswax from the Pacific Northwest .
I have always tried to give back in a way that would create positive change.
One of the products I am most proud to say I created, was a hydration solution for military working dogs. I worked on this project with an Army Ranger, and the ‘K9 UNIT’ dog water bottle continues to be used by working dogs around the world. I love that!
With Big Moon Beeswax, we are just starting to develop unique candle offerings that shine a light on areas that we have personal experience with and feel we can create positive change. We created a section of our site called ‘Let Your Light Shine’ to let you know how you can help.
Our first offering is the ‘Adopt Love’ 4oz. travel tin, which we sell exclusively through select shelters and pet adoption facilities.
These candles are sold by select shelters, and all profits go toward the shelters.
We are currently working on another area that is even closer to my heart. My mother is a Cancer Warrior who inspires me to keep my light shining no matter what, and she leads by example. We continue to work on the perfect offering and partners that will shine more light on cancer solutions.
Check out the “Let Your Light Shine” page on our website for more information.
I hope this gives you a better understanding of our studio, and why we do what we do. If you want to know how seriously we take candle quality, just head on over to our “About Our Candles” page and find out more.
