Ruth Wilkerson, foundatrice of La Petite Abeille (The Little Bee LLC) has been a professional chandler for more than ten years. The company was born from her love of the beauty of pure beeswax candles, a desire to provide a superior product to upscale markets, and a quest to increase demand for bee products, therefore encouraging more responsible beekeeping which is crucial to our environment.
La Petite Abeille “the little bee” serves a devoted clientele of high-end gift, wedding registry, interior design, fine antique, and gourmet stores, and has now expanded to include an online boutique that features the most sought-after items. The company enjoys operations in a beautifully appointed chandlery, where the candles are handmade and finished by apprenticed artisans. We are grateful for your interest!
