For more than 100 years, Colonial Candles® have been burning brightly in the homes of America. Their candle story began in 1905 with Mabel Baker, a former Massachusetts school teacher, who began making hand dipped bayberry taper candles in her tiny Cape Cod kitchen. The candles became so popular with family and friends that she started selling them in her husband’s local hardware store. By 1909, many stores in the Cape Cod area were selling Mrs. Baker’s candles and Colonial Candle® was officially in business.
Today, they produce all of their candles in North Carolina with the same pride and craftsmanship established over a century ago.
The Kalamazoo Candle Company candles are made with soy wax, paper wick, and dye-free, so they’re about as natural as it gets. They are clean burning, burn all the way to the edge, and release fragrance through the entire burn. The Candle Tins (net 6.5oz) last a minimum of 35 hours and the Candle Jars (net 10oz) last a minimum of 60 hours.
The founders of Milkhouse Candles, Eric and Janet Sparrow, have deep-rooted ties to agricultural America. It is their Midwest upbringing that inspired the creation for a cleaner, healthier candle experience. From years of researching, experimenting, and just having fun creating, Milkhouse Candle Company was born.
The Milkhouse blend of waxes is simple: pure beeswax and natural soy wax from soybeans grown right here, in America’s upper Midwest. Natural, renewable waxes contain none of the carcinogens of paraffin candles, and the 40% recycled glassware containers are 100% recyclable, so your candle jars will have a useful life in your home long after the wax is gone!
Now the same friends, family, and co-workers that spurred on their candle making, help to produce this much loved candle in Osage, Iowa.
