Oak & Oliver Candle Co. started as a passion project in my Colorado Springs kitchen, when I decided to make handmade gifts for the 2015 holiday season. Throughout the next year, I continued to “play” with wax, scents and containers until I got it just right.
A 2016 move to Whispering Pines, NC introduced me to an entrepreneurial community like I had never experienced before, and my budding business blossomed.
For my, candle making is a beautiful creative outlet. It’s experimental and messy, particular yet abstract. It has allowed me to play, learn, grow and embrace a side of entrepreneurship I always knew was in me. I love mixing fragrances, perfecting measurements and packaging my work into an incredible product that you’ll bring into your home.
My hope is that each time you light an Oak & Oliver Candle, it transports you to a place of relaxation, invigoration or creativity. Thank you for supporting my little candle business dream!
