About Village Apothecary Candle Co.
We keep things simple.
Village Apothecary candles are hand-poured into reusable jars and made from a blend of phthalate-free coconut and soy waxes, along with high quality fragrance oils. We like to stick with a clean and timeless design for a candle that fits any space. Village Apothecary candles are made in small batches in Birmingham, Alabama. We are family owned and are driven to help make sustainable self-care accessible for all. Our candles have been tested with children, pets, the allergy sensitive, and the migraine prone to ensure the best experience for your space.
The Family Behind the Biz
My husband and I started Village Apothecary while I was pregnant with my first child. I have always been fascinated with those deep, earthy, and unique candles, but I've struggled with finding products that were safe for the family & home. As a hobby, I decided to hijack our kitchen and started testing my own candle formulas with coconut wax and clean fragrance oils
After hundreds of hours of testing, (and probably hundreds of failed candles), I started producing candles that I was proud of. Now, candle-making is my full time business and I hope to be able to hire working mothers, students, and artists in the near future.
Village Apothecary is about community, pushing past intimidation, and embracing the creativity within. From your bathtub to the office, we want our candles to help you self-care more often.
