Why choose Our Own Candle Company when there are so many other candle companies out there?

And what's with the name?

Many years ago, in a land far, far away (it was actually 1998 in Cherry Hill, New Jersey), we operated a Home Decor business that had a large importing division. One of the items we imported were decorative candle lamp shades.


We ended up with just a few too many of them, so we decided to search for a high quality yet affordable candle that the shades could fit onto for us to sell in our retail stores. We wanted the best scent, the best color and the best burn, and we just couldn't find one. Especially one for under ten bucks! So we decided to source wax, wicks, fragrance, glass jars, etc. and start Our Own Candle Company (get it?). Making great candles is now our specialty, and it's all we do. And we love it!

Enjoy what we think is the perfect candle.

Proudly made in the USA.

  • Affordability.  There are different categories in this market. Extremely overpriced candles with big brand names, and extremely low priced candles that are either imported, or made from low quality materials. Our candles are VERY affordable and the quality is as good or better than any other candle out there. It's a niche that we are comfortable in. 

  • Variety. Not only do we carry up to 50 different scents, we make them in a lot of different styles! We bring out new scents every year, and seasonal scents throughout the year as well! We have also added a line of handmade soaps. After our success with the candles we worked just as hard to develop our handmade soaps. There are lots of scents, and base materials to check out. Try them out, you won't be sorry.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               

  • Convenience. We have retailers in every state, and many different countries as well. We have a retail locator right on the site HERE to help you find them, and links to our international distributors. We have also built this easy to use web site, and of course you can always call us. We'll be glad to hear from you! Our toll free number is 1-877-726-6353.

  • Quick order processing. Nobody likes to wait for their orders. You order candles, you want them as fast as possible! We want you to have them. We ship orders within one business day. We use either UPS or USPS depending on the order and location. We ship from New York state and can get you your candles with just a couple of days. Sometimes even the next day!

  • Quality, Quality, Quality.  Lets say it again... QUALITY. You are not paying for a low quality candle with an affordable price. You are paying for the highest quality candle you can get for an affordable price. It's what we do! Look below for some of the reasons we're the best!                                                                                                                                                                                  

It's really all about you, our customer. If you aren't happy with our products, customer service, or anything else we do then you won't come back. If you don't come back we don't have a business. It's really just that simple. Like the saying goes, if you're not happy, we're not happy!
