About Us

Great Bear Wax Co. was founded as a way to capture the memories you have of the great outdoors. Whether your favorites are sharing stories by the campfire, hitting the trail, or just spending time outside in nature, we hope our scents bring those back to life for you. Our candles are made with USA soy wax and fine fragrance and essential oils. They are all poured by hand in small batches in Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
