Our Candles

Elm & Co. candles are crafted and hand poured in small batches in Central California. Elm & Co. uses a combination of premium phthalate-free fragrances infused with essential oils, a proprietary blend of natural coconut and food-grade waxes. We only use lead-free and zinc-free natural cotton wicks and our handpicked luxury vessels are eco-friendly, sustainable and reusable. Each fragrance is thoughtfully formulated in hopes that you will find joy with each Elm & Co. candle.

Our Origin Story

Elm & Co began after creating a project for YouTube. I've created hundreds of DIY projects none of them excited me and kept me wanting to produce more like candle making. One candle and I was hooked. Thus began candle making and a love for creating like I'd never known before.

Elm & Co signifies a place of serene tranquility, and joy. I grew up on a small ranch in Central California (the ranch out on Elm, they'd call it). The ranch is now just a memory for my family and I. But the memories, the good company we kept and built in relationships and remembrance are what I hold close to my heart. I love the saying "in good company, we most definitely are".

Meet the Maker

Hi, I'm Valerie! A wife, mother, follower of Christ and the last 2 years a content creator. I started creating content to share home decor, design and DIY ideas with my fellow home decor and crafting community online.

What started as a hobby has  since grown to be a wonderful community of friends and a beautiful place to share inspiration and ideas for home decor, DIY projects and design ideas. 

We hope the candles we have created at Elm & Co bring the sentiment of tranquility and that you'll find joy in life's simple pleasures.

Our hope is that you will keep and be kept in good company and that our candles will provide the backdrop for some of life's greatest memories.
