What is HempWick?

HempWick™ is the ORIGINAL organic lighter alternative that is handmade by the 2 of us Hippies.

HempWick™ can be used to light ANYTHING... from hookahs and tobacco pipes to pilot lights, camping grills, and hard to reach candles. HempWick™ preserves the flavor of fine cigars, reduces harmful exposure to butane, and makes lighting things fun! 

HempWick is Handmade by us Hippies. That's not only our slogan... It's totally true. We’ve always made HempWick in small batches and quality tested it ourselves! We lovingly (and laboriously) hand coat every inch of organic hemp in organic beeswax from our local mangroves! We hand package all HempWick products ourselves too. :)

Handmade by Hippies means: NO plastic wrap, NO GMOs, NO potato starch, NO lead, NO filler waxes, NO hidden ingredients, NO paraffin wax, NO blended fibers, NO acid salts, NO chemically treated anything, NO outsourcing, NO factories, NO robots, NO made in China, NO funky stuff, and certainly NO unfair labor practices!! Thank you for buying Handmade by Hippies! We are grateful for your support! 

Our Ingredients 
We don’t use just any old hemp and beeswax! 
Check out our environmental policies for more info!

Beeswax: We’re currently waxing with organic tropical wildflower blossom beeswax from our local mangroves! The bee hives it comes from are in our east coast mangroves on super wild land. The bees gather the pollens they need to make wild tropical blossom honey and wax from gallberry, saw palmetto, and other tropical wild flower blossoms. The acreage surrounding their hives is wild, un cultivated, and is not fertilized or chemically sprayed. Our local beeswax is what gives HempWick its super sweet aroma of honey and rich golden color. The color of the wax can vary from light yellow to medium brown because of the season and because it is made by bees from lots of flowers. Bees are naturally attracted to HempWick because they can smell the sweet pure beeswax.

Hemp: Our pure organic hemp is grown in Europe. It is unbleached, minimally processed & un-fooled around with- until we hand wax it! The color of HempWick varies due to the season the hemp is grown, the farm it is grown on and the strain of the plant itself because it is a crop of the earth. Hopefully we will be able to grow it here soon!
