About

From photographer to project manager to candle maker...

Orla Soy Candle. Since 2006. We make eco friendly natural soy wax candles from U.S. grown soybeans, an earth friendly renewable resource. Free of petrochemicals, phthalates and additives. Our clean burning candles have 100% cotton wicks combined with the natural soy and premium fragrance/essential oils, they smell better than most! Each candle is handmade and hand poured with care.

OUR STORY
I never thought I would be a candle maker. After sailing the Atlantic and Mediterranean and then finally deciding to finish college, I settled down and became a photo editor/photographer with a magazine in Newport Rhode Island for 10 years. Then after marrying and raising 2 sons I was asked to work full time as project manager in my husband's record label business.

Soon we decided we needed another product to add to our music cd gift line. So we decided to add natural soy candles to be paired thematically with our cds. We were going to have them made off site, but the cost was too high and we wanted to control the quality and ingredients, so we decided to make the candles ourselves. (I did make sand candles in the 70's!). Richard and I took a course in Iowa on soy candle making, then spent a year developing our formulas, designing our factory, candle packaging & marketing components. It was a lot of work, especially making and testing the candles, using only wax, wicks, and premium essentials oils that were clean & safe for the consumer. It was a whirlwind, fun and creative. In 2006 Orla Soy Candle was born. With the help of our focus groups we developed a popular, high quality, safe, hand poured line of candles known for their beautiful fragrance and clean burning properties.

We continue to make the candles in southern Rhode Island, exploring new fragrance oils, new container options and sharing ideas with my candle customers. Working in small batches with carefully selected ingredients I am dedicated to making the finest candle possible. Customers can choose from in stock items or I also love the process of designing custom candles for that very special event or for your retail shop! It is a great escape from my other 'jobs', I enjoy what I do and it is reflected in the quality of my candles.
