Gabriel John Candles is a boutique candle company that started as a conversation one summer evening in 2010, after a little challenge from my husband and sisters questioning my creative ability……

After much experimenting, studying, and dedication, I poured my first candles in my home kitchen in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, IL.  At that moment, I realized a company was born and a point was proven.  My goal was to create candle lines that were both simple and luxurious while capturing the Artisan touch. 

It was important to me that if I wanted to find my niche in this market, I needed to add a piece of my personality… each candle its personal touch.  To do so I quickly realized I couldn’t do it alone and was then lucky to tap into a team of dedicated stay-at-home moms to help power the engine through.   The results were amazing!!

As a candle connoisseur with a background in the health care industry, I stated my company with the desire to create candles that aren’t only beautiful, but free of unnecessary and harmful additives.  No coloring, no fillers, or any full synthetic fragrances.

Each candle is hand-crafted in small-batches from start to finish in the artisanal tradition using only select quality ingredients that are both kind to the environment and kind to our health. I believe that green, Eco-friendly products and beautiful design go hand-in-hand.  

All candles are made of locally sourced American made materials.
