Hi, and welcome to Happy Little Flame!
Our handcrafted candle company is located in Lake County, IL. We carefully source only the cleanest, high quality, natural ingredients to make our candles and melts, and hand pour them in small batches.
We are dedicated to making products that are quality, clean, and safe for the whole family.
I’m Bex, founder and creator of HLF, and the enthusiastic writer behind this blog.
Although my husband Sean, Co-Founder & CFO, isn’t involved in this part of the business (he’s the left brain and I’m the right), I really wanted to give you all an inside look at the start of our brand new, family-built business. I hope you enjoy following our journey!
If you’re like me, you’ve probably spent years buying candles based on the scent and the strength of the scent (“throw”), without considering much else. Many people today seem to be under the impression that if the masses are buying a product, it’s safe. Or even good for you.
But that’s completely wrong.
I have always loved candles, and it never occurred to me that these small items (that I burn for hours and hours every day in my home) could be toxic. I never thought to look into how candles were made or what was in them.
Then I had kids.
I leave no stone unturned when it comes to the wellbeing of my children.
It was, in fact, that initial research on candles that inspired me to start Happy Little Flame.
When it came to my mission, it was clear that I wanted to help spread awareness about the toxins found in simple, every-day products. I wanted to somehow help people become more cognizant of the things they use in their homes and ultimately, put into their bodies. I wanted to encourage people to begin taking a closer look at the products they buy. Where they come from. How they are made. Who makes them.
This passion has turned our candle-making into a business that’s built on a foundation of honesty, integrity, and quality. We have spent seven long months (and counting…) researching, sourcing, and testing, to ensure we are creating a safe, clean, superior product for our customers and their families.
We invite you to follow our journey through our blog and on social media, as we grow our business and raise our littles in our amazing community!
See you soon!
