Our soy candles are scented with essential oils and fragrance blends and produce a bright, steady and beautiful flame.
Greenwood Candles started in 2017. However my passion for candles started many years ago. My family has always supported and encouraged to me pursue my passion. My passion grew and it evolved to making candles and thus started my journey in the world of candle making.
I have always loved candles, but always found no matter the company or fragrance. I could only handle burning candles for a bit before getting a migraine. I could burn oils and incense and not get sick. So after much research I found out about all natural and eco-friendly soy wax. Soy wax is not made from crude oil unlike paraffin candles. And best of all the burning of soy wax candles did not trigger my migraines unlike paraffin candles. There it was…what started me on this journey.
I love being creative; always refurbishing, and doing DIYs…you name it I did it. I decided I wanted to make my own candles as a hobby and realized how therapeutic and calming it is for me. I am now hooked and just want to do something that I love not something that I have to do.
I am a mother of 5 and a grandmother of 3. With this role there always comes the... “I have to do’s”. Now I ‘m in a place in my life that I have a great support system and my faith in God that even if I fail I know that I tried my best and gave it my all and had fun doing it. So “Home To Hands” was born! I make every candle with love, care, and time.
Seems kind of silly, but I have to say when I placed my first order for my inventory. I was so nervous. So much went through my mind. Some of these feelings were fear, excitement, and joy that flooded my mind. Regardless of the outcome. I can now say that I am pursuing my dream.
Our soy wax candles are hand poured and tested to ensure the best possible burn
Greenwood Candles soy wax candles are made with love and it is my goal to share this love from my home to your hands.
