About us

The Magical Bee

The Magical Bee is now 3 years old! We chose this name because the Bee is a sacred animal. Everything it does is beneficial. Everything it produces is beneficial. As humans, we have a lot to learn from them! From pollinating flowers to being vital for the health of our environment and ecosystem, they are magical! We use sustainable and responsibly sourced bee products like organic raw honey, organic raw bee pollen, and premium beeswax. The production of these components and your purchase supports bee populations, the environment, and sustainability! ALL of our products are vegetarian-friendly!

Magical Bee creators; 

Dan & James. We have been enthusiasts of natural candles, soaps, herbs, and oils our whole lives. One day we decided to make our own candles and soaps for a fun craft project and to make gifts for our loved ones. We fell in love with the whole process of hand-making our products and decided to create our unique artisan candles, then soaps, and more. We took our products to various events, farmer's markets, and fairs. They became wildly popular! We knew we needed to have an online presence to share these with everyone! All our products are handmade in our small workshop in historic Astoria, Oregon

Why purchase our handmade soaps and candles?

Since everything is handmade, we know what goes into them! Ingredients are all intentional, safe, and useful. Our candles & soaps are very different than big-box/commercial candles & soaps you have already purchased in stores. Those products are created to be produced as quickly and cheaply as possible, and this means they most often contain synthetic, processed, and possibly toxic ingredients and additives. In contrast, we use premium ingredients, premium essential oils, nontoxic phthalate-free fragrance oils, natural waxes, food grade oils, organic & local ingredients whenever possible. 

Our candles & soaps make wonderful gifts!

We would like to inform you that it is expected each of our products is slightly different. This is normal and we are convinced it adds to the character and uniqueness of each product. 

We love the fabulous quality and uniqueness of the products, and we hope you find them fantastic for yourself and your loved ones!
