About

Mason Jar Candles & Aroma Melts Hand Crafted in the Blue Ridge Mountains

Hey y'all! My name is Callie Altman and I'm the proud owner of North Mountain Candle Co.

I got my start as a candlemaker in November of 2005 when I decided to take my love of candles to the next level and try to make some for Christmas presents. Much to my surprise - my family & friends LOVED them - so much so that they wanted to buy more! Over the course of the next year, the experiments from my kitchen evolved into a business in my basement. And as they say...the rest is history!

Thirteen years later and you can find our products in several retail locations throughout Southwest Virginia, as well as here on our website. We also attend numerous shows, festivals, and markets each year. We now offer a full line of custom special event favors - Occasions by North Mountain - to help make your wedding, shower, party, or celebration truly one of a kind. You can also attend our Artisan Candlemaking Class taught throughout the year at The Omni Homestead Resort in Hot Springs, VA.

I get asked all the time if North Mountain is an actual place and the answer is YES! I grew up in a "holler" at the base of North Mountain in a small former mining community called Longdale. Almost all of my childhood memories involve the outdoors in some way, shape, or form. From hiking along the Appalachian Trial, to camping at Douthat State Park, or fishing on the Cowpasture River, I have been blessed to live in God's country all of my life.

I don't have to go very far to find inspiration for my products. When you're surrounded by the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains, all you have to do is look outside your window! Our work shoppe is located in the picturesque town of Buchanan, Virginia. The Blue Ridge Parkway winds its way through the beautiful mountains that tower above us. It is such a blessing to live in such a pretty place!

My goal as an artisan is to share a little bit of my heaven here on earth with my customers - one fragrance at a time. That's why almost all of our fragrances have been influenced by some of the places you'll find here in Southwest Virginia.

When we aren't making candles, you can find my husband, Mark, and I, working as EMS providers for our local fire departments. We are blessed parents of two beautiful boys, Mason and Easton. We enjoy spending all of our free time with them and living life to the fullest!

Thank you for taking the time to get to know North Mountain Candle Co. ❤️
