THE story of A COUNTRY CANDLE MAKER
Meet WHITE OAK CANDLE CO™
Established in 2007, White Oak Candle Co.™ set out to create unique, rustic fragrances that are cozy, laid back and welcoming.
For the love of scented candles:
We grew frustrated with the retailers discontinuing our favorite outdoor fragrances, so we decided. "Why not make our own?" We started researching, reading articles on how to make candles. Searched for information on different types of wax and wicks. We had no idea how much goes into making a candle!
We weighed the benefits of each type of candle wax and settled on a soy blend that gives us room-filling fragrance and a slower, even burn.
Now - how to decide which fragrances to make? That's where our personal lives played its part:
We'd rather live in a cabin in a rural area than anywhere else. We enjoy watching wildlife sauntering through the yard while hanging out by the fire pit on a clear evening. We fully believe in supporting our local farmer's market, making meals from scratch and decorating our home with items that were locally produced. When Sunday's come, we love exploring unknown landscapes, taking drives through old country roads and coming home to to relax with a lit candle and Sunday supper on the stove.
Each candle's scent has some type of tie to our life and most beloved memories.
Sit back, grab a cup of coffee, a glass of whiskey, whatever you choose and find your favorite!
