About Us

Hi there! My name is Tasha! I'm the owner, founder, and candle maker of Little Town Soy Candle Co. I started the company in July of 2020. What started as a hobby during the covid pandemic quickly turned into a new passion for me! Not only do I love making candles, but I have so much fun doing it! You're probably wondering "why candles, and why little town?" I chose candles because candles are so universal. They can be used as a sign of hope, remembrance, celebration, or simply bring some light and joy into peoples lives. Plus they smell really good! When it came to choosing a name to represent the products, I wanted something from the heart. It's not just because I live in a little town. I'm originally from a small town in Alaska but moved to North Dakota in 2015 and have been here ever since. I wanted an article of the company to represent my roots and my home in North Dakota, where the majority of the state is made up of little towns. The people that make up our communities look out for one another. We all might not know each other on a personal level but we always come together and help in times of need. Growing up in a little town there's certain values you learn. You learn how to genuinely care for others around you, offer a helping hand, to be respectful, show appreciation and humbleness, but most importantly, just be kind. So being raised and living in small town America means everything to me. It shaped me into who I am today. I'm proud to represent all the little towns full of people with big hearts! Thank you for stopping by the website, I hope the candles and products bring as much joy to your life as I have making them. If you have any questions, special requests, please feel free to reach out! 

 Our candles and melts are hand poured in small batches in Gladstone, North Dakota. Why is small batch important to us? By pouring small quantities at a time, this allows us to melt wax to the perfect temperature, blend, and produce the highest quality candles. Just think of it as each and every product getting a little extra tender love and care. It can take longer to produce candles, but it's one of those steps that is well worth it.

 Our wax is 100% natural soy wax from the Midwest. We only use the finest and high quality fragrances. Our wicks are a blend of cotton and paper fibers and 100% lead FREE and zinc FREE. You may notice the candles and melts are all white. The reasoning behind this is simple, we don't add any modifiers, harsh chemicals, and dyes to our wax. By keeping our candles au naturel, it can also result in bumpy tops, especially after burning the candle, which is completely normal for soy wax. Let us briefly explain... Since soy wax has a lower melting point than other waxes, it also solidifies at a more rapid and inconsistent rate. By wax cooling too quickly it can cause the wax to harden where it sits instead of evenly cooling to create that smooth surface. Sure there's additives to mix with your wax to help prevent this from occurring. But we like to keep things as simple and natural as we can. Some of our candles might not look as pretty after being burned, but we promise it will not effect the candle for future burning. 

 Our room + linen spray...There's THREE ingredients in our room + linen sprays. Fragrance, natural wild crafted witch hazel, and alcohol (derived from corn). When searching for a good base we came across many options but very few with ingredients we could pronounce. So again, we chose simple, healthy, non toxic. Those are ingredients we love! It contains ZERO sulfates and ZERO harsh/harmful chemicals.
