Hand-sketched design Soy Candles

We love candles. Our journey into the scented candle world started with blue jar candles, which we feel are some of the best-scented candles available. We love those candles and how they smell, and we continue to buy them from time to time. We just don’t like how they burn. The candle itself burns down the middle, which means wasted candle wax.

You know the kind – the wax is stuck to the side of the jar.

We knew very little about how to make candles, but that didn’t stop us. Since we liked the scent, we used wax warmers to use up the rest of the unused wax. It’s how we enjoyed the scent until that fateful day when we came across an article that motivated us to learn about the art of candle-making and the industry itself.

It was an inspiring article about a 14-year-old boy who taught himself how to create and sell manly-scented candles. We wanted to get serious about candle-making, so we began learning what we could about how to make candles for ourselves. We found the majority of candles use paraffin wax, which comes from petroleum. On the other hand, many candles are made from soy wax, and soy candles are the healthy, natural alternative to paraffin candles, so we decided to use soy wax in our soy candles.

We began creating candles for our families and friends, with the goal for feedback - what we were doing right, what we could do better, etc. Through their feedback and increasing interest in our candles, we came up with Chi Candle. And, in 2013, we established an Etsy shop (www.etsy.com/shop/ChiCandle).
We began small, but we pressed on to become where we are today. It started with us spending hours every day for months to develop new ideas that would capture our prospective audience’s attention. We asked ourselves how we could be different from other candle makers in the industry, and the answer finally came to us.

We came up with new names for the products we had, with my husband hand-sketching all labels himself using his iPad. Our Evocative candle line is a prime example of our hard work and perseverance. Every candle scent is based on a state’s tree, flower, fruit, river, mountain and lake. The name is centered on a particular characteristic of that state (Arkansas Natural Wildlife, Alaska Midnight Sun, Florida Sunshine Beach, etc.).

We hope you like them as much as we like making them! Thank you!

SUMMER MONTHS SHIPPING (June - September mostly): Some of our products will melt or become soft in the hot summer weather. However, I will do everything I can to make sure this does not occur, please check my Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/notes/chi-candle/how-to-safely-pack-chi-candle-candles-for-shipping/192229087614711. During summer months, I will only ship on Mondays and Tuesdays to make it less likely shipments will sit in a hot warehouse or truck over a weekend.
