Barn Door Candle Company is an Etsy shop run by Mae in the pure state of Michigan, owner and designer. Mae has a passion for creating comforting, non-toxic, organic items for the home. She wants to share her desire for healthy living, and create a soy candle that could be in the homes of everyone.
Mae runs the shop with her husband and his family. Her husband helps with pouring wax, stirring, and physical stuff, and this allows Mae to create labels, make the scents, and create thank you cards. She emphasizes she wouldn't be able to do any of this without God, her husband, and family.

Barn Door Candle Company's products are chemical-free and organic. None of the ingredients contain harmful toxins. The soy used is made chemical-free and the wick is made from beeswax. When you're thinking about a nice Chai beverage, think about lighting this candle too.
A little bit more about Mae's story:
I made my first non-toxic candle as a means to bring comfort to myself amidst my health struggles. I became sick with an organ destroying disease 9 years ago, and recently became paralyzed from it. I am bedridden most days, and having a candle on my bedside table brought me comfort. Most paraben candles smelled amazing, but would give me seizures or cause me to pass out. So on days where I had enough energy,and with my husband’s help; I made my very own batch of soy candles. I then wanted to share my candles with the world, so I created Barn Door Candle Company. I absolutely love making soy candles that can be gifts to loved ones, or just a treat for yourself. Candles can bring comfort amidst a stressful day and are a great gift that brings joy. I want to hand-make candles for those that do not have the time to do it themselves.

My wife is a sucker for anything lavender, so it goes without saying that Barn Door Candle Company's lavender candle is featured prominently in our home. It has a pleasant scent and soothes the mind.
Did you know lavender has many health benefits? Some of the notable benefits include the ability to eliminate nervous tension, nurture the skin, and treat respiratory problems. The Latin name of lavender is Lavare, which means “to wash," due to the clean aroma.
If you need a gift for Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, a wedding gift, birthdays, Easter, or even a gift for someone who's sick or needs encouragement, Barn Door Candle Company is a great option.
