I’ve been creating unique gifts and crafts for over 10 years, starting with jewelry and culminating with the Excelsior Candle Co. three year’s ago.
Initially I wanted to make special gifts for family and friends and maybe sell a few to continue funding my hobby. Until recently, I was melting wax in pots on my stove with bottles of scents scattered everywhere. All the burners occupied with small pitchers of soy-based wax slowly melting while I prepped and and all variety of containers.
A lot of trial and error, a lot of spilled wax and scents (occasionally accidentally flavoring whatever food item might have been close) finally led me to getting a 65lb wax melter and setting up a studio. Everything from applying the labels to packing and shipping. There are no short-cuts and there is no automation. It’s an old world process that calls for patience and commitment.
The candles are environmentally friends, as is the process and I love doing it.
My belief is that the right fragrance can make everyday moments feel extraordinary. All of our candles are batch made in Minnesota using the highest quality ingredients; you’ll fall in love at first light.
