Collection: When’s Low Tide Candles

Our When’s Low Tide candle collection features hand-beachcombed containers with a hidden beach find (beach marble, bottle stopper, figural or jewelry quality sea glass) inside. Candles are hand-poured, all natural soy, made in small batches in-house at When's Low Tide on the Chesapeake Bay or by our friends at Sweet Cider Candle Company in Maryland USA (students who started their own business during the pandemic) and depending on variety are topped with sea glass, fresh herbs and spices, seashells, candy decorations, pink Himalayan sea salt and other fresh ingredients.

Our scent collection varies by season. Our perpetual scents include Lavender Vanilla, Sea Salt Orchid and Black Cherry Merlot. New varieties each month! Check our Instagram page for latest news:

Like each of us, the candle containers are unique and not perfect, often cracked, chipped, missing handles, etc- they are in their shoreline-found conditions. Since they are fragile, we don’t recommend burning them for excessive amounts of time because they do become quite hot. Please use caution. (So many metaphors for people here!)

If you return your container after use to be refilled in the scent of your choice, we offer a 20% discount and the candle will contain a new beach find.


A portion of all sales benefits The Beachcombing Center, a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to preserving beachcombed finds from around the world and increasing awareness about marine debris and coastal erosion. Visit for more info.
