Behind the Brand
Hey there! If you're reading this, you're interested in how Chari Candle Co. came about. I'd love to share with you!
In 2020, I was very much in a transitional phase of my life. In the midst of a pandemic, my family and I relocated to Florida, and shortly after I became pregnant with my second child. I found myself rebuilding the pieces of our lives in a place where we barely knew anyone.
In trying to make our new place feel like home, I started shopping, decorating, and finished off with a few new candles. However, this was the first time that I not only questioned how often I was purchasing candles, but the quality of the candles that my family and I were breathing. It dawned on me...I could probably make these on my own?...
I researched a variety of waxes, fragrances, vessels, and different methods on how to make clean candles from scratch. I purchased a DIY candle making kit, and once I started making them, the process felt so therapeutic. The experimenting and testing of different non-toxic waxes and scents, playing with the numbers to see what formula worked best, and ultimately knowing that I was creating a candle that I could thoroughly enjoy. I could set a relaxing atmosphere knowing that the air we breathed in our home remained clean.
At 20 weeks, we found out we were having a girl! I have this ongoing repository of baby names that I've always kept as if I would have 37 babies, so I already had my girl and boy names ready! I fell in love with the name Chari- as it is a piece of my name and also felt simplistic and elegant. My husband isn't a fan of "Jr." or "II" for our kids, so we decided to craft a different name for her together! However, the name Chari still held a special place in my mind.
Fast forward to month 7 of my pregnancy. We had purchased our new home and were all settled in for baby girl's arrival. I still felt the connection to making candles and couldn't wait to start back. I also knew that I couldn't be the only person who wanted clean products in their home that they could also easily access. At that moment, I created Chari Candle Co.
My name is Charittey, Owner and Maker of Chari Candle Co. The brand was created to embrace every important moment in life.

Candle making has paved a way to pass a legacy of self-care and relaxation through generations.
