About CottageWicks Candle Studio

After 8 1/2 years working for the Connecticut State Legislature, and 5 years working in the private sector as a graphic designer, Jessica knew it was time to start a new endeavor. Utilizing her Fine Arts education from Hartford Art School, her love of nature and living a healthy bohemian lifestyle, she dove right into purchasing her first 50 pound box of soy wax. After months of testing, trial and error, she created her first batch of all natural soy candles. Product design, photo shoots, and selling her first candles during a local holiday craft show came shortly after. Thus, CottageWicks was born.

CottageWicks specializes in freshly scented soy candles that are hand-poured in small batches. Each candle is hand-poured in our vintage style apothecary jars with a beautiful label and galvanized lid. For an eco-friendly & clean burn, our candles are made from 100% natural soy wax grown by American farmers, cotton core wicks, premium grade fragrances and pure essential oils. Our ‘small batch’ style is greatly enjoyed and helps us connect to each artisan candle we create and ship.

We are dedicated to helping people live simply and beautifully through safe, soothing candlelight.

We do not use phthalates, colorants or other toxic chemicals.
