Native Candle Co. was started with the belief that cozy homes can be non toxic. Once I had my kiddos, I became very aware about all of the products we were using. I was so bummed to learn about all of the nasty junk hiding in those store bought candles. Did you know most candles contain paraffin and are petroleum based? I set out to find a better way, because I didn't want to give up the cozy vibe and yummy smell of a lit candle.
I started becoming obsessed with sourcing the best possible ingredients: US grown soy wax (a renewable resource!), cotton wicks, phthalate + paraben free fragrances, and recyclable glass jars and wooden lids, among other things. Friends and family started asking for candles, and Native was born! I work exclusively out of my dining room, mostly at night once the kids are tucked in- it's my "me" time. I love the whole experience of making the candles: I set each wick by hand, hand pour each candle, and in watercolor labels, I paint them! This gives every candle a unique variation that I just can't get enough of. I see the entire process through from start to finish.
Every piece of this process is customizable to fit your needs!
I love love LOVE playing with scents and can make any scent you'd like. I can't wait to work with you!
