Our Story

A few years ago, shortly after our daughter was born, we began searching for something we could do together to earn some extra money to help make ends meet. Our criteria was that it be more enjoyable than our day job and, being new parents, something that would be eco-friendly. Our family loved good candles, how they could change the atmosphere of a room with there light and fragrance. The down side was that a good candle cost a lot of money, and they tended to emit a puff of black smoke and leave black residue around the glass. In researching why candles do this we discovered that a typical candle is made from paraffin wax, which is a petroleum based product. We also learned that there are other types of wax available that are made from natural sources, are healthier, better for the environment, and cost less.

And so began our candle making. We made our first batch of candles using soy wax, and gave them to family and friends. The feedback we received was great, and soon we were selling them around our neighborhood and at work. People loved the quality, price, and how cleanly they burned. We have spent the past few years improving our product and technique, changing from soy wax to an even more eco-friendly palm wax. We hope you enjoyed our story, and appreciate your time and support.

Thank you for visiting Bayberry Candle Company.
