About

Premium Quality in an Adorable Size & Price

We started Dio Candle Company in 2016 because…we simply had to. We started making candles for ourselves, our friends and family… and then the demand grew past our tiny circle. Our friends’ friends wanted candles. Family members we didn’t even know we had wanted candles. Word was spreading quickly so we put a name on it…

Flash back to one afternoon:

We were just like you: bored of traditional paraffin wax, searching online for unique, premium quality soy candles that were going to permeate our house with a new and exciting scent - something we'd never smelled before, or perhaps something that we had stored away in our memory...waiting to be unlocked. We found that some options were very expensive, and when we received them - we were a little underwhelmed. Certainly, there had to be a better way of getting more bang for your buck. Everything looked so boring!

So, we went to the drawing board. We wanted to make a product that was premium quality, with some of the most interesting scents concocted by our creative minds. (We are proud to say that we source many different fragrance houses from around the world and continue to support local fragrance distilleries right here in Denver.) Then, we asked ourselves how we could bring this traditionally very-boring-industry into the 21st century for today's people? We want more! We want fun while also being affordable. We took this into consideration and shrunk down to our signature size. Problem solved!

And the name? It’s pronounced “DEE-OH”. It’s a nickname of sorts for our family name. My husband’s father was an entrepreneur himself, a candy vendor in Philadelphia, owning Dio’s Good Old Fashion Gumballs. To pay homage to his memory, we too, named our company Dio.

Our candles are all proudly made in the USA, sourced with the highest quality components. We pride ourselves on creating affordable, locally harvested soy candles with Adorable names. We hand-pour our candles using USA-grown soy wax, into glass jars manufactured in Texas with wicks made in Missouri.

We mix our candles by hand, in such a unique fashion that allows our premium fragrance to bond seamlessly with our soy wax molecules. We also lid our jars at a certain point during the curing process to ensure all candles have maximum scent throw impact.

That’s why the delicious aroma from one tiny Adorable candle will fill up your entire room!

OUR STORY

My name is Natasha, and I’m a lifelong retail employee turned entrepreneur. My husband, Michael, and I moved across the country in June 2016 to Denver, Colorado to pursue our dreams of living close to the Mountains. Dreams come true, indeed.

We take customer service very seriously. Between the two of us we have over 20 years experience working in retail customer service and issue resolution. We promise to deliver you the customer service you'd expect from a large professional company with the attention to detail and humility of a small business. Growing up in a small town (< 2,900 people) I know what it’s like to be the little mom and pop shop. That's partly why we wanted to start our own business and put ourselves in a position to positively impact our community and do things right. Every candle you see for sale has been made in small batches and is hand poured by our Adorable family.

We knew we wanted to be a different kind of candle company. One that inspired admiration. The day we opened our original Adorable Size Candle® jars, I squealed with delight. I’m pretty sure I ran around the house yelling “Oh my God! Oh my God! Oh my God!!!!”

We showed our friends, who exclaimed: "Adorable! That is the cutest candle EVER!" and so was born the original Adorable Size Candle®, the smallest glass jar premium candle in the world! We've grown a lot since our first tiny jar, and now offer Very Adorable Sizes, Super Adorable Sizes, bookmarks, dare-we-say-perfect lip balms and more!

We pride ourselves on our unique scents and work hard to come up with Adorable names to make you smile. We want to ensure you have the most remarkable experience so that you love our company as much as we do. Please don't hesitate to reach out for any questions, comments, concerns or just to say hi and tell us you love our candles – we love customer feedback and always respond to email within 48 hours of receipt!

Frequently asked questions
My candle is marbleized in appearance- is it defective?

Not at all! Sometimes this is just the nature of soy. Your candle will burn/smell just as it should! Fantastic!

Are these glass jars recyclable?

Yes! Please recycle! I use easy to remove labels and glue dots for this very reason! They make cute containers for just about everything! Just hand-wash the lid & the jar can go in the dishwasher!

I live in a hot climate, wont this candle melt in the mail? Can I get it shipped any faster?

I actually have a shipping profile set up just for hot climates. It requires a signature for delivery, so your candle will never be left out in the sun!
There is also a RUSH shipping profile set up as well, in case you cant wait to get your candle! Make sure to utilize these options during check-out :-)

I want to buy bulk candles with a custom label.. how do I go about this?

I've done candles for weddings, bridal showers, proms and business events! I usually need just a week's notice and I can make up to 500 customized candles for your event! Please send me a message under the contact shop owner section and let's get to talking!
