My Why

Hello Friend, welcome to Essex County Candles!  I'm Suzanne, maker and master pourer!  Like you, I love candles and believe all the good parts of life call for them --birthdays, tub soaks, morning musings...  I bought so many before realizing that most contained toxins that were affecting my family’s health. Have you noticed they rarely list the actual ingredients? Liking pretty things, there was no way I was giving them up and thus began my candle journey.

Since I’ve always been creative and into home decor, I decided to learn all I could about clean candle making. I then gifted samples to family and friends, who gave great responses. So in 2019 I went for it and launched Essex County Candles. Now I pour for you, too!

I'm committed to non-toxic products, and every batch is made by hand using 100% American-grown soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, chemical-free fragrance oils and reusable/recyclable vessels.  And every candle that leaves my pouring room is made with my love (yes, really) so that you too may enjoy the glow!
