Root – the best candles in America, made in America. These votive candles are made with Root proprietary natural beeswax blend using pure Essential oil fragrances and an all-natural cotton wick. Root votives produce a long-lasting 20 hour burn with a rich sensory experience. Using all-natural materials for purity and balance, Root candles seduce your senses, enhance your living space and soothe your soul. Candles are manufactured according to all ASTM (safety) standards. Root manufactures their own all-natural cotton wicks and test burns 1, 000 candles every day to check fragrance throw, emissions, soot, flame strength, stability, useful life, welling, dripping, and burn time. Stringent color matching is done daily to ensure consistent quality from batch to batch. Root has combined the time honored methods of early 20th century hand crafted candle-making, with 21st century automation technologies to continue a renowned tradition and reputation.
