Amy began Vance Family Candles on a mission to provide the perfect, sustainable candle. She wanted a candle that was naturally scented (not only should it be natural anyway, but synthetic fragrance). No Synthetic Fragrance is EVER used in our candles, our wicks are low-smoke cotton, our containers are made in the USA (our glass is recycled), and our soy is GMO-FREE! We use pure essential oils and organic flavor oils (most of our natural,GMO-free, aromatherapy and edible grade oils are made in the Pacific NW - a few are sourced from their native lands) to create our amazing, hand crafted candles. Our labels were designed by an artist in Vancouver, WA and crafted on unbleached, Made in the USA, recycled paper.
