Root Altar Candles are our pride, our flagship product, the first product for church use that was produced by our founder, Amos Ives Root. Using beeswax from his own hives, he rolled sheets of pure beeswax around wicks. Our candles are no longer made by rolling, but Root has not given up the old standards of quality set by our founder, A.I. Root. Our beeswax is all domestically harvested and is filtered for purity, avoiding harsh chemicals or bleach. Root’s pure, natural beeswax altar candles have been a part of sacred traditions in thousands of churches since the early 1900’s.
