Great fragrance options and these candles did not disappoint. Also, they were able to ship them on time prior to my shower and I was really grateful for that - excellent company to do business with - very responsive!

There's something holy about being alone in nature, apart from the constant flurry of online activity & endless notifications. Until we can get back to trail, we're burning our Thru Hike candle & dreaming of campfire nights & cool mornings.
Home after a wonderfully long week visiting friends in Raleigh & celebrating a marriage in New York. There are still bags to be unpacked & clothes to be washed, but that can wait. Util tomorrow, it's a quiet evening with a few Cinna Bakery candles.

Hand-poured soy candles with free customization

We were married August 2014, and in those first few months of marriage, we never expected that in a year we’d be candle artisans at our very own Forestry Studio.

Meet John. Born outside of Boston but raised in South Carolina foothills, he’s the visionary behind the vision before you. He plans ahead, makes spreadsheets, calculates risk/gain, and overall keeps our hobby-turned-reality making money and a business. John directly oversees the production process, often waking at 4a to pour 75 pounds of pure soy wax before heading to his 9-5 job. We work together, most often to the sound of Star Trek or The Avett Brothers.

Meet Sarah. She’s moved close to two dozen times and maintains strong connections to both Oregon and South Carolina. If wax is melting or being poured, you’ll most likely find Sarah nearby. With the coming of Baby Collins' Christmas 2016, Sarah has transitioned to a marketing role. Although she's more stationary preparing for motherhood, you'll still find her in the studio - usually attempting to lift something too heavy.

Together, we are John and Sarah Collins, founders of Modern Forestry LLC. We do everything together. (Well, almost.) We’re a team, loving this hobby-turned-small-business that enables us to work together and work from home as we look ahead to start our family.
