Many of you may have heard in the news about the Clayton Fire, which has done extensive damage to the town of Lower Lake. By a miracle and the courageous service of our firefighters, our Aloha Bay Candle factory fortunately remains one of the buildings still standing on Main Street in Lower Lake, California.
Our factory in Lower Lake, surrounded by fire and smoke: August 14, 2016.

When you purchase an Eco Palm Wax candle from Aloha Bay know that you are buying the most eco-friendly candle on the planet. Here's why: Eco Palm Wax is a steam distilled essential oil that has therapeutic benefits just like our other naturally occurring essential oil scents; Aloha Bay candle colors are 100% REACH compliant; Aloha Bay display fixtures are made from Rainforest Alliance certified SmartWood; our packaging uses 100% consumer recycled cardboard; and Eco Palm Wax candles are vegan without beeswax, paraffin, or synthetic petrochemical additives. Aloha Bay's palm wax is non-GMO and tested with Genetic ID, a third party laboratory.
Why We Choose Palm Wax
In a word: sustainability. Palm is a tree crop that enhances biodiversity and carbon sequestering, uses very little water, and is GMO free and pest resistant. One acre of palm trees provides the same quantity of wax as 20 acres of soy beans. Sourced from Malaysia, Brazil, and Colombia, the palm oil in our pure vegetable palm wax candles is no threat to rainforests.
Rainforest Alliance Certified Palm Wax
In celebrating Aloha Bay's 20th anniversary of helping retailers and individual clients find sustainable solutions for their homes and families, we have launched the world's first Rainforest Alliance certified candle line made of Eco Palm Wax sourced from certified organic palm groves in South America. Select from the Aloha Jars fragranced with essential oils or perfume blends. Also certified are unscented white tea lights and tapers.
Soy Candles - Why We Don't Make Them
Having experimented with and evaluated almost every type of vegetable wax, we have found that using 100% palm wax makes the very best candles. We discovered that soy wax alone is just too soft and oily to be used without mixing in large amounts of palm wax or paraffin. We also learned that there is no certified organic soy wax supply available as all soy wax is genetically modified, chemically distilled and commercially grown. For these reasons and more, read further on why we don't make soy candles.
Himalayan Crystal Salt
Aloha Bay imports mined ancient ocean salt from the Salt Range of the Himalayas in Pakistan. Himalayan salt is easily metabolized, contains minerals and trace elements, and has a stronger, richer flavor than sea salt. For incredibly smooth and silky skin, soak with our USDA organic Himalayan bath salts containing 100% essential oils. Accent your environs with decorative salt lamps and enjoy the warming glow of their soft pink light. Learn more about our Himalayan crystal salt, "The Best Salt on Earth"™.
Aromatherapy Diffusers and Candles
Aromatherapy is the use of naturally occurring plant substances called essential oils for the purpose of improving a person's moods, thinking and well-being. Aromatherapy diffusers and our Eco Palm Wax™ aromatherapy jar candles, votives and pillar candles are an excellent way to benefit from the therapeutic influence of pure essential oils.
Chakra votives and Chakra Energy jar candles hold the wealth of fragrance found in nature - pure flower and plant essences with the power to revive or soothe, heal or protect. Each is infused with essential oils selected for their aromatherapy benefits relative to balancing each chakra. Review our Chakra Guide to assist your selection of the candle colors and scents that match your wishes, moods, and environments. Also available in unscented chakra colors. Enjoy this short video on our Chakra Line of Candles.
Feng Shui Candles
Feng Shui jar candles reflect the ancient principles of Feng Shui, where color and fragrance relate to the Five Elements of Nature. These candles feature all cotton wicks, contain 100% organic 'therapeutic grade' essential oil blends and are poured in multiple layers of palm wax sourced from sustainable tree farming in Malaysia and certified organic groves in Brazil. Energize and transform your home or office in a positive way with this knowledge on Feng Shui candle placement, colors and directions.

We travel to our global fair trade partners in Pakistan, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Malaysia to source certified organic palm wax for our wholesale candles as well as for essential oils, wild crafted herbs, and naturally occurring Himalayan salt.
