Our Candles, Our Journey: The Tale of swax candle co
It all started when my boyfriend (Cameron) bought me a candle-making kit for Christmas of 2020 (or so he says... I still think he secretly bought it for himself).
After experimenting and creating a few candles, we discovered a shared passion for the craft. Through hard work and dedication, we spent almost a year testing and perfecting various combinations of wax, fragrance, and wicks until we finally achieved the perfect recipe with candle #168.
With our winning formula in hand, we set to work on other aspects of building our business, such as coming up with a name, signage, website, advertising, product photos, and packaging. Looking back, it was a lot more work than we initially realized, but it was all worth it when we received such positive feedback at local markets and launched our website to the public in December 2021.
As we look to the future, we are excited to continue expanding our reach by participating in more local markets and making connections with other vendors in the area. While we currently have three rooms in our house dedicated to candle-making, we hope to eventually open a storefront or candle studio to accommodate our growing business.
We are grateful for everyone who has supported us so far and are eager to see what the new year brings. Thank you for being a part of our story and joining us on this journey.
Lots of love,
Swax Candle Co
