Product Description - Aloha Bay Candle Votives Organic Eco Palm Wax Unscented Green 12-pack
Green Organic Votive Candles
Webster's definition of votive is the following: "dedicated or performed in fulfillment of a vow."
Votive candles are often lit for prayer intentions. To "light a candle for someone" indicates one's intention to say a prayer for another person, and the candle symbolizes that prayer. Votive or prayer candles are also lit for inspiration or a specific intention or to cast a spell.
Research of national candle brands shows a sales pattern by percentage of dollars spent something like:
- Votives 30%
- Jars 30%
- Pillars 25%
- Tapers 15%
Aloha Bay® votive sales by dollar volume is more like 40%.
Pillars sell mostly during the holidays. Tapers are burnt at gourmet meals or special ceremonies. Jars are the longest burning candles and most often used in rooms or ceremonies where the candle needs to burn for longer periods of time.
Most often a candle buyer will try out a new scent by purchasing a votive candle. They will definitely come back and buy more of the same scent if they love it and then try out a couple new votive candle scents. Once they find their favorites scents, they will buy some jar candles. With a votive candle it's the everyday candle use that creates the repeat sales.
Aloha Bay® offers three types of votive candles:
- 100% pure essential oil scents. These are the best selling.
- Unscented votive candles. These are for scent sensitivity folks. Yoga studios and meditation centers often burn unscented candles for the same reason. Unscented also works best for someone that wants to burn a candle at a meal and not have the candle scent compete with their gourmet food and fine wines.
- Synthetic scents. These are the favorites of folks who want really strong scents to fill the room.
A votive candle lasts about 15 hours.

In 1993, Aloha Bay began manufacturing and wholesaling hand dipped paraffin tapers, painted with palm wax. These beautiful tapers are still popular in the gift industry. In 1997, we developed the first 100% Palm Wax™ votives and richly scented jar candles.
Over the years, we have expanded our use of pure essential oils and have become the primary vegetable wax wholesale candle and Himalayan salt lamp supplier to the natural food industry.
Aloha Bay has continued to experiment with every type of vegetable wax (soy, coconut, rice bran, carnauba, candelilla, bayberry, jojoba and even castor oil).
We have found that palm wax makes the best candles especially blended with high concentrations of pure essential oil scents.
