1.0 out of 5 stars NOT beeswax, January 16, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Root Unscented 2 x 6-Inch Timberline Pillar Candles, Raw Beeswax Color, 3-Count Box (Kitchen)
These are NOT beeswax candles -- they are "Beeswax Color" candles. Very Misleading.

Upon arrival, I opened the box and held a candle up to my nose, excited to smell the wonderful beeswax scent. They smelled of dust + cardboard. I read the sticker on the bottom, it read "BEESWAX" (see pic). I called the Root Candle company to ask what they are made from -- I was told; "paraffin, some other stuff and a little bit of beeswax." I calmly expressed my disappointment. It's my bad, I didn't read the description carefully enough. But, I find imitation products like this very frustrating and so felt compelled to write a review for those of you looking for real beeswax candles.

all that said, Amazon's return process was very simple and efficient.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer beware, October 10, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Root Unscented 2 x 6-Inch Timberline Pillar Candles, Raw Beeswax Color, 3-Count Box (Kitchen)
As other reviewers commented, these are not beeswax candles. I missed the Raw Beeswax COLOR. They are described by the manufacturer as being " ...a special blend of only the finest premium waxes.." The customer service department never responded to my request to be more specific about that. They also do not burn evenly - lots of wasted wax. If these, as claimed, are the finest in America, I guess I'll be looking for imports.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Candles Sold In The US, April 27, 2012

Root candles are the best quality candle product I have found (at least so far) sold in the US. They work with a husband who has asthma problems and burn a long time without dripping. I burn pillar candles in our living room fireplace, among other places, changing the candle colors with the seasons. I have some Root candles that have lasted me at least a few years because they are so long-lasting. Plus, I don't have to scrape off a bunch of wax. I have found that, while they seem expensive, the candles are such a high quality that you can use them for a long time and you don't have the clean-up issues like with so many other candles that are cheap and readily available. A great product. Would make a great hostess gift.
