It all started in 2003. I (Susie) was a stay-at-home mom and the kids and I decided to make candles for Christmas gifts. We figured, “how hard could it be? Get some wax and smelly stuff…. Stick a wick in… And BOOM! Awesome candle!” How wrong we were! Those first candles were pathetic. But that experience in failure led to a year-long spree of candle testing and testing and testing. After a year, we had what we thought was the best candle around. Soon friends came back asking for more… And their friends came asking for more… Next thing we knew, we had fund raiser requests. And so began Master’s Hand Candle Company.
