Meet The Candlemaker

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a fascination with candles. I grew up in the country of Honduras in Central America. It was there where I had my first experience with candles. The electrical grid system in Honduras was unstable and would fail or be shut off all the time. I remember as a young child seeing my mom getting matches and lighting a white candle to brighten our house during these outages. When I moved to the United States, a friend gifted me a soy candle and my interest in scented candles rekindled. I challenged myself to learn something new, and what better thing than to learn how to make toxic-free, eco-friendly candles. This is how Newman Candle Co. was born.
