Our Story...

How did Lost Creek Candle Co. begin?...

 

With two sisters who were born and raised right here in the Fraser Valley.   We grew up in a candle-loving household, which frequently burned candles for everything from special dinners to creating ambiance. This is where our own love for candles started and has evolved ever since. Over the years, we had spent time trying to find the perfect candles, a mix between lovely scents and ones that burned properly We were not able to find a candle that had all of the qualities we expected.  After months of researching, not only the best techniques but also the best materials, we decided to try making our own! 

We knew that we wanted to create a high-quality candle, made with the finest ingredients and materials that we would want to burn ourselves.  We also value community, which is why we choose to work with mostly local vendors to source quality products that create clean burning candles.  But the perfect candle does not come easy… we have spent (and still spend) countless hours of mixing, reformulating, testing and re-testing to ensure that we have, in our opinion, one of the best candles on the market.   After we had found the right formula, we began selling our candles to our family and friends.  They LOVED them!  With so much support and love for our candles, we decided to make them publicly available and so, Lost Creek Candle Co. was born!

Many candles on the market currently contain ingredients that have been linked to carcinogens.  YUCK! Which is why we only use premium, 100% soy wax – nothing containing paraffin’s, parabens, phthalates or lead. In addition to using 100% soy wax we also use paper braided wicks specifically designed for soy wax candles.  We want people to have confidence in the candles they are burning in their homes while feeling good about supporting a local, small business.  We hold our candles to the highest of standards and they do not leave our warehouse without meeting our expectations of quality.  

We love them and really hope that you love them too!
