Our Story

On a mission to make the world kinder, one candle at a time. For every candle purchased, we donate a portion to help animals in need.

Why Companion Candles?

Quarantine, right? When COVID hit and our founder, Loren, was spending 99.9% of her days in her small, city apartment with her dog (Mylo), she began to question what was really in the candles she was constantly burning and inhaling. While they may be "safe" for her, what about Mylo, who was breathing the same air she was? Thus, Companion Candles was born.


What type of wick is used?

We use eco-friendly, clean-burning, wooden wicks made from FSC Certified Wood, hand-crafted + made in the USA.

Why donate a portion of proceeds?

We envision a world where giving back is built into every business model.

We NEVER use fragrance oils that contain the five main “hazard groups” below:

✖ Carcinogens: These are materials known or thought to cause cancer. 

 Mutagens: Materials that change the DNA of a cell, harming the cell and causing diseases like cancer. 

✖ Reproductive toxins: Toxins that adversely affect reproductive organs and increase the risk of birth defects. 

✖ Organ toxins: These are toxins that can cause adverse effects or disease within specific bodily organs. 

✖ Acute toxins: Toxins that can cause adverse effects from a single exposure. Generally, this would be accidental exposure like spillage or ingestion. 

We source our scents from a manufacturer that has the most comprehensive, rigorous standards in the fragrance industry.

The chemicals listed are ingredients often found in fragrance that Companion Candles will never contain. Due to the extensive number of exclusions, not every ingredient is listed.
