100% soy wax candles. Hand-poured in small batches.

We are candle people. We can discuss burn pools, wick sizes, and the benefits of soy vs. paraffin wax like nobody’s business.

We are a married couple from the west coast with a fierce love of the beach, Disneyland, and anything celebrating our home state. After spending three years in Franklin, Tennessee, moving back home renewed our love of California and all it has to offer.

We wanted to celebrate the diversity and richness of California while creating a product made with quality ingredients, so Golden State Wax Co. was born. We love candles. And we love California. It was a natural merging of the two that has brought us here today, making candles by hand in small batches.

Shine on fellow candle people, shine on.
