About Candleberry Company

The Candleberry Tree, or Candlenut Tree, produces the candlenut, from which candles were made many years ago. The candlenut is also sometimes referred to as a bayberry. We like to keep in mind the natural aspect of candle making when we examine our processes. There are so many cheap candles on the market, many of which are filled with solvents, diluting the oils to the point that there is little to no fragrance. Not only do we use some of the highest quality oils available but we also fill our jars with an extremely high percentage of oils. You can be sure that when you buy a Candleberry Candle you are receiving jars of the best quality oils and jars of the most highly scented candes on the market.

The Candleberry Company prides itself upon having what we consider to be the finest candle on the market. As candle lovers ourselves, we strive to make a candle that burns clean (virtually no smoke) and is very heavily scented all the way through to the end of the burn. Our zinc wicks contain no lead and are, therefore, safe. Additionally, they burn cleaner than wicks that are all paper.

Our company was founded on the basis of family tradition. Most of the candles we have created relate to a traditional ritual or family favorite. Its hard to find exactly what you want in a scent, so we took our time in finding what we knew everyone would want. If a scent was not clean enough, rich enough, or did not have enough strength, or sweetness, we reconstructed its composition until it was perfected. There are no "average" candles in the entire line.

A quality candle is very sensitive, therefore difficult to make, but we went through grueling testing to make the best one possible. We finally achieved a candle that results in little to no smoke (keep wicks trimmed) and burns down clean from the sides of the jar as if there was never anything there. We have given as much scent to these candles as the wax will carry without oil seeping out the sides and the scent remains that strength from the beginning to the end of the burn.

Some of our customers include Jack Daniels Distillers, Jim Beam, Wild Turkey and Four Roses Distillers. We have also been featured in Wine & Spirits Magazine among other publications. You can find our candles in the Governor's Mansion as well as many other discriminating homes across the country. And we greatly appreciate your support and help in making us the company we are today.

Candleberry FAQ's

Q: Do your wicks contain lead? 
A: No, our wicks have a zink core, which makes our candles safe to burn and results in less smoke than an all paper wick.

Q: How long will a Candleberry Candle keep its scent? 
A: From beginning to end. Some candles are scented mainly at the top, so that when you remove the lid for the first time a strong scent is released. Such a candle will lose its scent as it burns down. Candleberry candle fragrances are released evenly throughout the burn.

Q: How can I keep my jar from turning black on the inside of the jar? 
A: We recommend that you always trim the wick before re-lighting, as this will greatly reduce smoke.

Q: Why does my candle tend to burn only in the center or burn a hole? 
A: If the candle is good quality wax, fragrance, and the correct wick matched, the likely reason is that you extinguish it too quickly after lighting. For Candleberry Candles, in each burn allow the wax to liquify to the sides of the jar before extinguishing, which may take up to two hours. But never leave a candle unattended!

Q: How do I avoid making the candle smoke when I extinguish it? 
A: Using a spoon or other metal object, tilt the wick into the melted wax then raise the wick back up. No smoke!

Q: Why does the wax in my Candleberry candle release from the sides of the jar? 
A: Candleberry fills the wax to the maximum with fragrance. The more spots the better! This reflects a heavy concentration of fragrance and the fact that they are hand-poured.

Q: Why do some candles have a rough look and others a smooth look? 
A: Rough candles can mean quickly made candles or it can mean a specific kind of wax. If the candle is in a jar and it has a rough surface, it is most likely a dense wax and/or a high melt point. Parrafins with a high melt point require wicks that create more combustion and sometimes more smoke. Therefore, a smooth surface jar candle is a better choice.
