What first hits you when you enter The Golden Hive is the subtle, sweet smell of honey. Sunlight pours in the front windows and gently warms the candles enough that you can smell what they are made of. The feeling of relaxation sets in and you know today is going to be a good day. The combination of ambiance, product availability and a passionate staff make the Golden Hive in Flagstaff a must see. One specialty product The Golden Hive hosts is an array of candles that come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from flowers and skulls to hearts and moons. Owner Tracy Heirigs takes the quality of her product seriously using over twenty different types of honey to ensure that perfect relaxation you're looking for. She personally oversees the manufacturing of Golden Hive candles which sources local beeswax whenever possible. Beeswax candles tend to burn 40% longer and without the drip and smoke of most other candles.
Heirigs finds candle making relaxing and knows others can too. As a result, The Golden Hive offers a make your own candle supplies kit that is not only great for family projects, craft nights and kids but they also make wonderful gifts. You can also make purchases on their website here.
You may have first seen Tracy and her family at local farmers’ markets. Don't worry, She will still be there, but now you can visit her storefront located at 8 W. Route 66. The Golden Hive is open Tuesday through Sunday from 10AM until 6PM. Stop in and smell the candles for yourself. You will be glad you did.
