Chi Candle, a candle company, owned and operated by wife and husband team, was founded by Chi in Menifee, a city in southwestern Riverside County, California in 2013.
We were inspired by our love of candles and everything that they bring to a home. However, we were very frustrated with some of the candles we had purchased.They often had little or no aroma, and they burn down the middle of the jar, leaving lots of wax stuck to the side of the jar. We started doing some research and decided to try at making our own candles. We discovered that most candles are made from paraffin wax, and paraffin wax is obtained from petroleum, which has been found to contain many carcinogenic toxins as well as create soot in the buildings they are burned. On the other hand, many candles are made from soy wax, and soy candles are the healthy, natural alternative to paraffin candles, so we decided to use soy wax in our scented candles. Our soy candles are burn clean, last long, and scented strong! They are poured completely different than any other candle on the market. We make our candles in small batches, and we have developed our unique formula and pouring process. This formula enhances the scent-throw, and maintain a longer burn time.
All of our candles are hand poured using domestically grown soy wax, environment-safe cotton wicks, fine fragrance oils, apothecary inspired jars, packaged, and shipped from our California studio.
