Relax into a Natural Scent-sation

Roll call: Who here could use some relaxation? Some detoxing? Some stress-relief? Did you raise your hand for all three? Ditto. When is some R&R ever not welcome? (If you didn't raise your hand, who are you and why aren't you sharing?)

At the Distilled Bath & Body headquarters in Fort Collins, CO, your Pit Pal Holly is up to something to serve that relaxation need! A new limited edition offering with ingredient standards you're used to from Pit Liquor deodorant. Drumroll...pure, hand-poured beeswax candles! Holly-luja! (Seriously though—thanks, Holly!)

Pouring these beauties is a heated process, so it's a good thing deodorant is our jam around here. Holly knows well that Pit Liquor beats the heat to quench your stench. So even while she's up to her elbows in hot wax, she's smelling fresh.

These Candles are the Bee's Knees

Partnered with another super-clever Pit Pal, Erica T., Holly's been hard at work formulating recipes to keep these non-toxic beeswax candles clean and smelling great. As of now, a small batch of candles launches at the beginning of each month and is available until sold out.

The first batch—Cardamom—sold out in just over two short hours! The second, slightly larger batchMay Flowerssold out even faster in 1 hour and 14 minutes. These candles really are that good! Each month's candle scent ties to the month's Limited Edition Pit Liquor scent. Mmm, sweet coordination!

Check out these other info bites that have Holly all a-buzz about her new natural beeswax candle project at Pit Liquor.

Impressive Ingredients

  • They're blissfully free of petrochemicals that many other candles release into your home as they're burned. You don't want a candle that's basically a mini oil refinery covered with synthesized scents—yuck.

  • Beeswax candles are the healthiest to burn, especially if the beeswax is pure and not blended with other waxes. (Pit Liquor's Limited Edition candles are made with 100% pure beeswax.)

  • These natural beeswax candles are non-toxic and hypo-allergenic. They're safe to burn around people with allergies and asthma.

  • They release negative ions into the air as they burn which helps neutralize air pollutants such as dust, mold, and odors.

  • On top of these health advantages, pure beeswax candles burn longer and brighter!

Stellar Sourcing

When asked about the sourcing of the beeswax, Holly said:

"You can get beeswax anywhere on the internet, but you really can't be sure what processes that wax or the bees have been through. The challenge was to find an accessible supplier in Colorado that we could support while they also support us and we found one right down the road. They have their own candle-making business called Bee Healthy and they make molded candles out of their wax. They are easy and great to work with and we love their beeswax!"

Bee-autiful things happen when small businesses band together! (Okay, no more bee puns...may-bee.)
