Our Story

The Essential Candle Co. was a concept created by myself and my partner following the birth of our first baby. We wanted to be able to burn candles and wax melts in our home without all the bad stuff. We certainly didn’t want our daughter breathing in all the chemicals that are in the majority of commercially manufactured candles. So we began experimenting with all-natural products, that's why we call ourselves The Essential Candle Co.
