Our Story

Hi! We're Sara and Fernando Velarde, two young entrepreneurs and owners of Chicago Candle Co. We launched this candle company in 2013 out of our home. More than 5 years, 50 retail partnerships, and thousands of online sales later, our small business has become something much, much larger and we couldn't be more proud.

We hand-pour our vegan soy wax into cut and polished upcyled bottles. This includes bottles recycled from local shops and cafes in the Chicago-land area! Every candle is still hand-crafted and made right here in Chicago. Our unique scents are made from natural essences that are intensely fragrant. Our special blends are made out of 100% all-natural, clean-burning wax.

Thanks for stopping by. We would love to hear from you! Send us a message to see what we can do for you!
