Founded in 1989, Edinboro Creations has grown to be one of the world's largest and most recognized beeswax candle companies. When our founder, Ward Troetschel started the business in 1989 he envisioned a small workshop producing hand crafted jewelry. The original jewelry was made of Sterling Silver or 14kt Gold with semi-precious gemstones. The first jewelry pieces were sold by art & craft Galleries in the mid-Atlantic region of the United States.
In 1993 after finishing his B.A. from Edinboro University, our founder took his newly acquired skills in Design and began with the medium of beeswax. The earliest efforts at beeswax candle production were an overwhelming success! Within a few short years the wholesale stores base was over 1500 stores mainly in the U.S.A, with sales into Canada, Japan and and few shops in Europe. A few national mail-order catalogs added to the beeswax candle success! Our most recent growth period started in about 2007 with the foray into internet retail sales directly to consumers. We love our customers and we love making the best beeswax candles!!
Our founder (Ward) has always considered hand rolled honeycombbeeswax candles to be the best beeswax candle style available. Old-fashioned poured or dripped beeswax candles are inefficient and use too much beeswax to produce the same size beeswax candle as a hand rolled beeswax candle. One of our 8" taper candles only uses about 1 ounce of beeswax versus an old-hand-fashioned beeswax 8" taper using 2 ounces of beeswax. Old-fashioned styles of beeswax candles use twice as much beeswax as our more efficient hand rolledhoneycomb beeswax candles. By weight a hand rolled honeycomb beeswax candle made by Edinboro Creations burns about 50% longer!
Edinboro Creations prides itself on producing beautiful candles that delight the eye and your other senses. From the delicate lace-like beauty of the honeycomb beeswax to the delightful light honey scent each of our beeswax candles creates an experience of delight! By using only pure beeswax and cotton wicks our candles are a natural candle that is a welcome addition to any home. All of our beeswax candles are made in Pennsylvania of U.S. sourced beeswax.
We take environmental responsibility very seriously by using wind generated electricity to power our workshop, also the labels that identify our candles are made from recycled content paper.
Unlike the unhealthy candles that other companies make that use paraffin wax, which is a by-product of the Gasoline making process, our natural wax is created by honeybees. We never add any chemically produced "fragrance oils" like some others do. Pure beeswax has a light honey scent that natural cleans the air in your home as the beeswax burns. Beeswax is a gift of nature, enjoy the gifts nature brings and most of all enjoy your life!
