About Us

When I realized the candles I bought at big box stores contained harmful and nonrenewable paraffin wax, I felt a lot of guilt about what I was burning in my home around my family and doing to the environment. On top of that, I was going through candles often and had a lot of glass candle jars that weren't getting reused and took a lot of work to recycle without a local glass recycling drop off. I needed something different that made me feel better about my love of burning candles. 

From this need, a Thoughtful Hive was born. Beeswax offers so many benefits that you see listed above, but most importantly, it feels good knowing you can keep doing something that brings you feelings of peace, calmness, and more can also have a bigger impact.

Purchasing a beeswax candle from us helps keep the environment clean of toxins and reduces container waste from empty candle jars. We also donate a portion of our profits to organizations working to protect the bees, protect the environment, and fight for equality. Your purchase also helps support a small business with a big dream of doing good in the world. Feel good knowing your reasons why are as important to me as my reasons why.
