Large stone candle lying on a bed of pine branches


Forest combines the smokiness of pine found in the mile-long stretch of loblolly pine on Chesterhaven Beach Farm, and pairs it with the bright, fresh scents of orange and cinnamon. This delightful scent fills the room with the aroma of woods, campfires, and fresh, crisp air.  Illuminate the home with joy and holiday memories at any time of the year.

Large stone candle lying on honeycomb


The vast, inviting wildflower meadows of our farm call to you with Honey: a fragrance as bright and vibrant as long summer days, succulent fruit, and the soft breezes of the Chesapeake.  Fragrance notes of pure sweet honey, fruit, and delicate flowers, reminiscent of harvesting honeycomb or opening a fresh jar of raw honey.

Large stone candle lying on a bed of lavender


Fresh, clean, and completely relaxing: Lavender puts you and your mind at ease while brightening and refreshing your space. Fill your home with the scent of Provence lavender blossoms without overpowering your senses. Hand-formulated with a blend of natural fragrance and essential oils.

A Note from our founder, Kara

For over four years we've been experimenting with custom-made vessels by a variety of artisans to create a sustainable line of candles. The most important part of this project was finding makers in the USA. It took a long time to find the perfect fit, but it was worth the wait.

We hope you will enjoy bringing these candles into your home as much as we've enjoyed making them. Indulge in a few of them to make an art statement in your dining room, living room or kitchen. Buy any four candles and get 15% off your order plus FREE shipping on orders over $75.

When you buy our products, you are supporting our mission

It may not seem like a big deal, but you are making a difference by purchasing Bee Inpsired® goods. You will be a hero in my mind. Our little business grew organically from my work as an artist. I paint with beeswax, and in 2010, I started beekeeping on Maryland's Eastern Shore to harvest wax for my encaustic paintings. I soon learned about the importance of bees to our planet's sustainability and the preciousness of honey, especially its nurturing and healing properties. Our mission is to craft beautiful and functional handmade goods in a sustainable way. We believe putting healthful things into and onto your body and inside your home make you feel healthy and beautiful. When you buy our products, you support all of the work we do.
