13 Beeswax is a beeswax company with a focus on handcrafted beeswax candles made in New York. Our goal is to create quality eco-friendly beeswax products that champions healthy living, and conscious consumer behaviors. We source raw material locally, and proudly craft our product in New York.
Our product is 100% natural and undergoes no chemical processing. Our candles begin with natural yellow beeswax granules, as they come from nature, without any synthetic fragrances added. All our candles have a natural honey aroma, and our essential infusions have only 100% pure essential oils, nothing chemical or synthetic added to it!
I co-founded 13 Beeswax with my wife, Andrea. Our passions aligned perfectly in the creation of this business. Andrea (aside from her forbidden love affair with desserts) is a health nut, and believes in being a conscious consumer. I’ve never given either of those things too much thought, but my passion lies in crafting things with my hands. I’ve always been blessed with a supportive family. From having a wood working studio to a painting studio, a “engineering studio (which was a hidden corner of the guest room in which I would disassemble any piece of electronic equipment I would get my hands on. )
Andrea graduated in social communications in Ecuador. I graduated with a BFA in New York. Our skills and passions overlap perfectly in creating and managing this business.
