In business over 13 Amazing years!

We can’t believe it’s been over 13 years already. Where has all of that time gone?

In those 13yrs, we have grown in ways we never imagined. Our product line has exploded, we are shipping all across the United Stated and our wholesale accounts are growing in leaps and bounds. Through it all, we continue to remain a small family run business right here in Rockford IL. Our customers are some of the best people we have ever met and we are so thankful for each and every one of them. 

Our Company

As candle lovers we ventured into the candle industry to find an alternative to paraffin candles. Our goal and purpose was to offer a candle that lasted longer, smelled great from start to finish and offered a nice clean and even burn. After months of research and experimenting Candle Crest SOY CANDLES came to life.  We now manufacture over 200 candle fragrances, developed a entire natural bath & body and have expanded our wholesale accounts in addition to offer candle fundraisers. We can’t wait to see what the next year brings.

Candle Crest Soy Candles Inc

Our soy candles can be found across the Untied States. We also offer private label for other companies as well. If you have a retail store and are interested in our soy candles, feel free to reach out to us. We would love to work with you to design the perfect candle style to fit your needs. 

Our bath & body line has also kept us on our toes these past few years. We released some of our bath products to our wholesale accounts but have since halted that because we can keep up with the demand of our vegan friendly handmade soaps and bath bombs.

What makes our soy candles a step ahead of the ordinary department store candles? It's all about the wax and fragrance we use in each soy candle we create.

Unlike most candles which are made of paraffin, soy wax candles are biodegradable, non-toxic and 95% soot free which means no more black candle jars, walls or ceilings and better air quality! Our soy candles burn cleaner and cooler making your soy candles last much longer. Since soy wax candles burn slower than paraffin candles they release the fragrance naturally and faster. Are you ready to switch to Soy?

We go a step further – to keep our soy wax natural we do not use wax additives such as paraffin to any of our soy candle products like some candle makers do. We use only the best quality fragrance oils and do not dilute our oils to assure you receive the most fragrant soy candles you can find.

We believe in offering our customers the highest quality soy candles on the market today! We take great pride in every candle product we create and are happy to offer you a healthier alternative to paraffin candles. We guarantee you will be pleased with any one of our fine soy candle products. We are adding even more great fragrances to our soy candle collection, including some “Limited Edition Soy Candle Fragrances” so check back often for all our new candle scents.

We also offers wholesale and custom label as well.

Customers Reviews

My absolute favorite place to buy candles, I rarely buy from anywhere else! So many unique scents that last. The eucalyptus lavender is my favorite candle. I also love their lotions and shower steamers!
Kelsey Nichols
The shop and owners, Dave and Judy, are the most accommodating, friendly and knowledgeable of any store owners I have ever come across, bar none!!! Love, love, love their candles and all of the products. Have never been lead astray by any thing they have mentioned to me.
Missy Taphorn
Best candle store ever!!! They have so many other things too, like home decor, bath bombs, soaps, lipbalms and more! Their scents are to die for and addicting, as well as clean burning since they are soy! Definitely will not leave empty-handed here!
