About the candles:

Fragrance is Phthalate Free, and all candles are made with all natural soy wax made from US grown soybeans. Soy wax creates a long lasting, clean burning, eco friendly candle without toxins, carcinogens, or pollutants. We also use eco-friendly candle wicks made from natural cotton and paper threads that are lead and zinc free.

About the brand:

Charleston Candle Co. is run by husband and wife team, Chaz and Kristen Schwiers.  In the summer of 2016, Kristen began making candles for fun out of their small apartment kitchen.  When the idea arose to develop candles based on different places and things in Charleston, the Etsy shop was launched and a fun side project had begun.  As the candles gained in popularity and sales, this fun side project became a full-fledged business - Charleston candles can now be found in stores across the US.
