About Us

Welcome to Backyard Candles!
Created from the inspiration to make a clean candle,
I began making candles in my free time
because I enjoyed using fragrances and essential oils.
As my passion grew I began looking for new ways to make my candles unique.
Enter coconuts.
There is something about coconuts that make them so appealing.
Maybe because of how simple they are, or how meaningful they are.
But however you look at, its impressive the amount of uses this fruit has.
When I began working with coconuts I realized that they have
 a tremendous impact on the way wax melts and wicks burn.
After numerous trials and errors,
 I was able to develop a recipe for making deliciously smelling candles.
The approach is natural.
I use all parts of the coconut shell,
along with other sustainable sources such as pure soy wax
and 100% cotton wicks.
 With this approach, I make candles that burn clean while throwing your way
scent that’s unparalleled.
I like candles.
The way they smell.
 The way they burn.
 And the way they create light.
You probably do too.
 When making candles I looked at all three of those aspects and
 worked tirelessly till they burned perfectly, AND SAFELY in coconuts.
 I set out to find the purest, best soy wax the market could deliver.
 The strongest, most potent essential oils and fragrances available.
 The most effective, but slowest burning lead-free wicks.
And the most unique ways I could incorporate the three
 in a way that allows candles to be more than just nice smelling, pools of wax.
 Backyard Candles come in the purest form, no exceptions.
That’s why our slogan is
"from mine to yours."
