From the very beginning, we knew we wanted to bring you something different. Pellar Fox is committed to handcrafting amazing luxury beeswax candles, made in small batches with 100% pure domestic beeswax. Maintaining sustainability and a reduced environmental impact is important to us in every step of our process, and our goal is to make candle shopping easier for those with allergies, asthma and other sensitivities. We also focus on those who are concerned about the toxins their pets metabolize in the home environment, by ensuring that our candles are crafted with pure domestic beeswax, straight from the hive. Our scented candles are crafted with a blend of clean fragrance and essential oils, and formulated without parabens, dyes, petroleum or phthalates.
We founded our company in 2020 and began growing in Portland, Oregon where we partnered with local markets and a regional independent grocery chain with 11 locations. Now, we are located in New York where you can find our products on the Pellar Fox website and shops and boutiques around the country. Retailers can find us on the Wholesale Platforms Faire and RangeMe.
So, how did we get our name? In Medieval times, a Pellar was a healer and someone villagers would seek out for help. "Pellar" comes from the latin word ‘Pello’, which means “to expel, banish, drive out”…and when you light a beeswax candle, it produces negative ions that attach to dust, pollen, mold, odor, and toxins in the air…literally driving them out of your space. We chose “Fox” because they are resourceful, intelligent and friendly. It's also been said that you should keep your beehive at least 3 ft. off the ground, because foxes (among other animals) love honey and beeswax - almost as much as we do.
