Company History

root-historical-timelinehoneycomb.jpg

When asked by a local priest to supply beeswax candles, A.I. Root's son, Huber Root, developed a superior beeswax candle using hand-rolled strips of beeswax from Root's own hives wrapped around a wick. These pure beeswax candles burned cleaner and longer, as they delivered the natural aroma of sweet honey. Root Candles has been the leading supplier of liturgical candles ever since. Root Candles, a manufacturer of liturgical candles since 1928, is honored to provide the Church with our beautiful, clean burning candles to enhance the devotional life of parishioners.

Root Candles is the leading supplier of both Liturgical candles and Decorative candles in the United States. For nearly 150 years, Root Candles of Medina, Ohio, has been an industry-leading, family-owned company renowned for innovative ideas, aesthetic enhancements and the highest standards of quality. Now in its fifth generation, the Root family continues to extol the virtues of honesty, integrity, and diligent craftsmanship. These qualities were exemplified by Root Candles founding father and American original, Amos Ives Root. His tradition of excellence, along with a genuine commitment to customer satisfaction and service, defines and fuels Root’s strong brand loyalty today. Root Candles is actively involved in advancing the knowledge and science of beekeeping, still publishing A.I.'s monthly magazine Bee Culture, and now in the 42nd edition of A.I.'s The ABCs of Bee Culture, which has become known as "The Beekeeper's Bible".
