CandleWorks began in 1993 when Melissa Bartholomew, a then Mother of two, was searching for a way to earn money to help care for her family. She’d always loved the way candles warmed up a home, and how a great candle could instantly lift your mood and instantly transport you back to special memories of your Grandmother’s kitchen, or your favorite Thanksgiving.  


Today Melissa still pours each candle by hand in small batches so that she knows her candles are perfect every time.
