Our company began in 1996, when our founder, Carole was diagnosed with breast cancer. Looking for a way to relax from the treacherous mental and physical effects of chemotherapy, Carole bought a slab of wax, a mold, and a small vile of scent, and created her first candle. The love she had for crafting her own candles soon ignited a passion which would help her along the journey from being a breast cancer patient to becoming a breast cancer survivor.
Carole’s Candles journey, like the journey of cancer survivors, was rocked with many twists and turns. When our founder was re-diagnosed with cancer in 2001, the business had to go on hold while our founder learned ways to care for her physical health and mental wellbeing. In the meantime, our company continued to dabble in wax for 10 years until 2011, when her son Tom came on board and helped focus the business towards wholesale distribution and now retail storefronts.
Carole’s Candles is built on the basis that creativity ignites passion, which in turn ignites our will to persevere, survive, and move beyond the hardships we face. We honor honesty, integrity, reliability, creativity, and individual expression. Our company promise is to provide you, our customer, a quality, one of a kind, unique candle or bath product that not only will accent your home decor, but also stand out as an unique work of artistic expression that will set the mood needed to sit back relax, and unwind from the day’s stresses.
Carole’s Candles knows what it means to survive. Like our founder, who has survived two bouts of cancer, Carole’s Candles has survived many hardships. That is why we are committed as a brand, to help people overcome the effects cancer has on their daily life. Our philosophy, bring a smile to the face of a cancer patient, and watch them foster their own inner ability to heal by finding balance within, an inner sense of joy, relaxation, and knowing that they are cared for. That is why we are a proud supporter of cancer related charities To Help Find the Cure. This was the commitment our founder made to herself, and the same commitment we make to others.
