Aloha Bay Richly Scented Candles
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, Aloha Bay developed the first 100% Palm Wax votives and richly scented jar candles.
Over the years, Aloha Bay has expanded their 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). They have found that palm wax makes the best candles especially blended with high concentrations of pure essential oil scents. Most vegetable waxes (e.g. soy wax) are too soft and oily to be used by themselves, so they are often mixed together with large percentages of palm wax.
Palm Oil is the Highest Yielding Energy-Producing Crop in the World
For over 15 years, Aloha Bay has been wholesaling gift and home decor items sourced first from Europe, then Asia and now includes Pakistan and Brazil. Aloha Bay always tries hard to follow business practices that are sustainable in the long run. They are aware of the impact they have on the planet, wildlife, neighbors, and global partners. This awareness shapes how they conduct business. By showing what they have accomplished so far, Aloha Bay hopes to earn your support.
In the last decades, growing global demand for edible oils and bio-fuels has resulted in a tremendous increase in areas under oil crop cultivation, particularly soybean and oil palm. With the price of crude petroleum hitting record heights, soy and palm oil are being promoted as feasible sources for biodiesel, a renewable substitute for petroleum-derived diesel. The rapid expansion of both crops has resulted in the conversion of High Conservation Value Rainforests in South-East Asia and South America, including parts of the Amazon. As world production of soy and palm oil is expected to continue increasing at the current pace, there is a growing concern that this expansion would result in further reducing the rain forests. The habitat of many species, like the orangutan, could significantly diminish, endangering their survival.
Bart travels to Asia regularly. With Aloha Bay's business partners, Ping and Prananto, he has worked from the very beginning on ways to make sure that Aloha Bay's palm wax originates predominantly from smaller, old-growth palm plantations, located around villages in rural Indonesia. Aloha Bay also chooses to buy palm wax from Malaysia, because its government has put a moratorium on forest clearing for the establishment of oil palm plantations. Only areas already used for agriculture will be allowed to convert to palm oil production. Recently, Aloha Bay has started experimenting with certified organic palm wax from sustainable fair trade plantations in Brazil.
Aloha Bay has decided not to try and write their own articles about the pros and cons of palm oil production. Ever since they found palm wax to be the best candle wax, allowing them to make the most richly scented candles to date, they definitely have a vested interest! Instead, they have chosen to post third party peer reviewed articles from independent sources, which are self-funded, objective and then actually spend their time in the countries concerned. Unfortunately, public relations experts working for global agro-conglomerates have their own agendas, just as some environmental groups allow their judgment to be clouded by their desire for media coverage (resulting in hyped statements and over-simplification).
Why Aloha Bay Chooses Palm Wax
In a word: sustainability. Palm is a tree crop that enhances biodiversity and carbon sequestering, uses very little water, and is GMO free and pest resistant. One acre of palm trees provides the same quantity of wax as 20 acres of soy beans. Sourced from Malaysia, Brazil, and Colombia, the palm wax in Aloha Bay's pure vegetable palm wax candles is no threat to rainforests or orangutan ecosystems.
Eco Palm Wax
When you purchase an Eco Palm Wax candle from Aloha Bay know that you are buying the most eco-friendly candle on the planet. Here's why: Eco Palm Wax is a steam distilled essential oil that has therapeutic benefits just like our other naturally occurring essential oil scents; Aloha Bay candle colors are 100% REACH compliant; Aloha Bay display fixtures are made from Rainforest Alliance certified SmartWood and their packaging uses 100% consumer recycled cardboard; and Eco Palm Wax candles are vegan without beeswax, paraffin, or synthetic petrochemical additives.
Rainforest Alliance Certified Palm Wax
In celebrating Aloha Bay's 20th anniversary of helping retailers and individual clients find sustainable solutions for their homes and families, Aloha Bay has launched the world's first Rainforest Alliance certified candle line made of Eco Palm Wax sourced from certified organic palm groves in South America. Select from the Aloha Jars fragranced with essential oils or perfume blends. Also certified are unscented white tea lights and tapers.
Soy Candles - Why Aloha Bay Doen't Make Them
Having experimented with and evaluated almost every type of vegetable wax, Aloha Bay has found that using 100% palm wax makes the very best candles. They discovered that soy wax alone is just too soft and oily to be used without mixing in large amounts of palm wax or paraffin. They also learned that there is no certified organic soy wax supply available as all soy wax is genetically modified, chemically distilled and commercially grown.
Aromatherapy Diffusers and Candles
Aromatherapy is the use of naturally occurring plant substances called essential oils for the purpose of improving a person's moods, thinking and well-being. Aromatherapy diffusers and Aloha Bay's Eco Palm Wax aromatherapy jar candles, votives and pillar candles are an excellent way to benefit from the therapeutic influence of pure essential oils.
Fair Trade Partners
Aloha Bay travels to their global fair trade partners in Pakistan, India, Brazil, Indonesia, and Malaysia to source certified organic palm wax for their wholesale candles as well as for essential oils, wild crafted herbs, and naturally occurring Himalayan salt.
