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. The goal I had 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…..giving 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.
By a team of dedicated, 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.
