Sample Some of the Best:

Here you've the opportunity to choose a scent, size, and quantity from By the Bay Botanicals' remarkable selection of all-natural palm wax candles.

Compared to popular candle companies, Destination Sensations offer...

• A recipe of 100% palm wax with 100% cotton core wicks provides a completely clean burn with absolutely no soot.

• Proper alignment of the wicks and continual testing of the candles provides longer burn times—40 hours for 12 ounce candles and 80 hours for 27 ounce candles—and greater efficiency, meaning the wax burns evenly to the edges.

• Scents are strong, clear, and room-filling—they each have a distinct identity, often paired with a pure fidelity to what's on the label, (for example, New York Apple Orchard smells like fresh apples off the branch).

• Palm wax forms a neat crystalline structure that changes and re-forms as the candle burns, giving it a frost-like texture, and its color will not fade.

• The palm wax used in these candles comes from sustainably harvested fruits.

• Each glass jar is made by Libbey Glass, comes with a tightly sealing lid, and can be used for handy kitchen ingredients or small storage once the candle has finished burning and the remaining wax discarded. Alternatively, they can be recycled, (but they're really too nice for that).

• Packaging is handled in recycled cardboard with high-quality, eco-friendly printed wraps—certainly green, but also what you'd expect if giving a candle as a gift.

• All candles are made fresh here in Maryland when you order them, and ship in 5 to 7 days.

• When all is said and done, Destination Sensations are a little cheaper than popular candles out there.

Roll all of this together, and you've a compelling reason to test out a few fragrances in your home. We like them because they promote clean air, without creating any black residue or volatile smoke, and because they're high quality, with great scents and a very nice presentation for which you'll most likely find a secondary use.

Concerns About Palm Wax? The wax used in these candles is sourced from Malaysia, the global leader in sustainable palm harvesting with strong government-backed programs to prevent deforestation and conserve wildlife. For more information, visit either the Malaysian Palm Oil Council, or visit American Palm Oil for a history of how Malaysia converted existing agricultural properties for palm use.

Destination Scentsation candles are made in Reisterstown, Maryland by a small concern called By the Bay Botanicals, owned by Michelle Sholund.
