Who are we?

Chester Candle Co. is 100 percent owned and operated by a family in Historic Chester, NJ. We personally design all of the packaging, choose all of the scents, wick all of the jars, hand pour and package all of the candles.

What makes our candles better?

Our candle wax  is  100% soy and contains no additives or preservatives. That means it has no petroleum sludge (paraffin wax) like most candles. We use a  100% cotton wick with no heavy metals and fragrance oils with no carcinogenic chemicals that are clean enough for skin, bath, and body products.

What is the burn time for our candles?

Burn time for our 9 oz. candle is approximately 50-60 hours. Burn time for our 12 oz candle is 65-80 hours.

How can I optimize the burn time?

First, be sure to trim your wick to 1/4" before burning. As with any candle, you should never burn our candles more than 4 hours at a time. This gives time for the wax to re-solidify and gives you an opportunity to re-trim the wick  to 1/4" .

Why are the candles numbered?

We use numbers so that you are forced to rely on your senses to determine the candle scents you like best and so that we can give you a comprehensive note profile so you know exactly what you are smelling.

Do you sell wholesale?

Yes, we sell wholesale to brick and mortar retailers only. Please see our wholesale inquiry page for more info.
