Our Story

Burt’s Bees® originated with candles back in the summer of 1984, when the founders of Burt’s Bees® met in rural Maine, and decided to use left-over beeswax from honeybee hives to make candles. From the beginning the founders had a belief in the power of nature when creating high quality products. This helped grow their candle business drastically and soon Burt’s Bees® began making the natural personal care products that we all know and love today. The rest is history.

Now Burt’s Bees® is returning to its candle roots with a licensing agreement with MVP Group. MVP Group began when Mary V. Propes purchased a building that happened to be filled from floor to ceiling with baby food jars. Rather than disposing of these materials, Mary made use of the jars by converting them into candles. Mary went to her local library and learned how to make quality candles. Once the jars were turned into candles, Mary and her family sold them. Eventually, every jar was used and by the time their building was cleared, a business was born.

Burt’s Bees® Candles are made with simple, natural ingredients and are now available for your home.
