Why Old Mill Candles?
Our high-quality candles are individually handcrafted from our family farm’s beeswax, without artificial colors or fragrance. All candles come uniquely packaged ready to enjoy or for gifting. All of our packaging comes from natural or recycled materials and is recyclable/compostable!

What’s in a Name?
Why are we called Old Mill Candles? The building that houses our family’s beekeeping operation is a repurposed flour mill from the turn of the century. Since 1955 we have used the building for honey and wax production.

Where does our beeswax come from?
All of our wax sourced from our family's 3rd generation farm in western MN. It is 100% pure, organic, domestic beeswax.

Beeswax Candles 101
~ Beeswax burns cleanly—without soot, smoke, or dripping
~ Our candles have no artificial colors or fragrances—just the sweet, 100 percent natural scent of beeswax from Minnesota clover fields
~ Beeswax candles burn significantly longer and cleaner than standard paraffin (petroleum-based) candles and come from a sustainable source
~ Candle wicks should generally be trimmed to about 1/4 inch. If the candle’s flame seems to flicker or is emitting smoke or soot extinguish the candle, trim the wick, and relight
~ After some time you may notice a light white film built up on the outside of the candle. This is a natural occurrence called wax “bloom” and shows you we did not treat the candles with any artificial chemicals to prevent this. It will not impact the candle or how it burns. If you would prefer to remove the bloom, simply buff with a soft cloth or gently heat the exterior of the candle
