Create an itinerary including Root Candles
It all started with a swarm of bees. Amos Ives Root was inspired by a swarm of bees that landed on his window to begin his very first business - beekeeping. For nearly 150 years, the Root name has been synonymous with beekeeping, honey, pure beeswax and the highest quality candles.

  • We enjoyed this store very much. They offer beautiful American-made candles, decor, and gift items, and are a Vera Bradley retailer as well. The prices on some items seemed a bit steep if, I'm being honest. I do understand that quality comes at a price, but I got sticker shock from a few things I picked up. I had read about the store online and was expecting a small gift shop, and the factory seconds/out of season section that I had read about online, and was surprised at how large the retail area actually is. I learned later that there was an entire upstairs that I managed to miss, and we were shopping for over an hour. The factory seconds area was very small and had very little to offer. I'm not sure if this is due to being cleared out during the winter holidays, or the production problems that a lot of smaller businesses are facing right now, or if the dozen or so varieties in small quantities are what you'd typically find in that section. I did end up buying some candles, some votive holders, and a Vera Bradley item. They have a wide variety of candle scents. Something for everyone. I will definitely be back.
  • I love visiting this shop. They have the most gorgeous smelling natural beeswax candles and tons of adorable holiday decorations. The live bee display is a real favorite as my family are really into bees. It is safely behind glass for anyone who might be concerned about live bees buzzing about. They often have really good sales as well. Worth a visit if you're looking for holiday decorations, trinkets or stocking stuffers. Plus some really interesting sauces and spreads in the back section.
  • Desperately miss the old outlet section way back behind the main building with endless rows and rows of significantly discounted defective or discounted candles - they even sold discount honey back there! Ugh, it was heaven. Such a tragedy what's happened to it. As another reviewer said, it's lost all its old charm.
  • If you need a candle. A real candle. A good smelling, made with local bees wax and a real quality candle that’s been around for the entire history of the town of Medina. This is the place. It’s a beautiful and historic building where they still manufacture the candles on-site. The showroom is full of assorted products, not just candles and is stunningly beautiful. A lot of care is put into the setup of Root Candles to make it very enjoyable for everyone. Even the old safe is utilized into a mini showroom. Seasonal setups offer unique scents based on the time of year. The fall, Halloween and even Christmas are clearly visible, or smellable I should say, at this time of year. I came in early September. The staff is really friendly and offered an explanation of the store for us because we were first timers. There’s a huge clearance section with fantastic deals. There is also a cafe with special hours, call for details. They also have a huge grocery section full of unique foods, honey, sauces and many many other really interesting products. I’m highly impressed and if you ever get to Medina OH, this place should definitely be on your to-do-list.
  • Root Candles is an Amazing Shopping Experience ! The physical structure is historic, cool, spacious and well-organized. The candles are high quality, fragrant and long lasting. The decor pieces offered at Root are high end and high quality. They carry some unique pieces designed to enhance the ambience of your home. The sales staff was awesome to work with - Debbie, the manager, Cathy & Hanna, sales associates, Becca, talented designer & Sandy, in the Cafe. This has become one of my favorite candle/home decor shopping destinations - be sure to go on a day when you have time to fully explore all they have.
