Our Story

Hello there,

My name is Radek, and I am the creator of ScentWick Candles. I started my company in early 2020. It all started only as a hobby, and I wanted to make candles for my own use. Shortly after I realized my passion for candle-making. With a lot of research, practice, and testing, I made the first candles I could stand behind and created ScentWick Candles in June 2020.

Our mission is to create all-natural, toxin-free candles. We chose to use only 100% soy wax in our production, free of any additives or dyes. The soy wax we purchase from our supplier is made of American grown soybeans. To learn more about the benefits of soy wax, click on the Why Soy Wax? article in our blog.
The next important part of each candle is a scent. The scents we use here at ScentWick Candles are free of phthalates and parabens and follow all health and safety regulations, including California's Prop 65. That way, you don't need to worry if these fragrances are safe for your home.

Finally, the last part of each candle is a flat braided cotton wick, free of zinc and lead.

Our company is located in Toledo, OH. We do not own any large manufacturing facility, and all candles we produce are hand-poured and handmade by me personally right in our home.

Sometimes it can be hard to make a candle purchase decision online, even though we include a scent profile of each fragrance. For that reason, you can shop our candles in 6 stores around Northwest Ohio, as well as numerous craft fairs, festivals, and shows throughout the year. To learn more about all locations where ScentWick Candles are sold, look at our blog.

We also offer custom label orders and wholesale pricing for special events or holidays. To learn more about custom orders and wholesale pricing, contact us.

I hope you enjoy our candles and that they bring joy and peace to your home.
