About Us

 

Southampton Candle Co. was co-founded by Lynn Bryant and Holly Gunn, a husband-and-wife team from Southampton County, Virginia. We began in 2018 with a lifelong love for candles and shared concerns about toxic ingredients shockingly common in candles on the market.  Once we learned more about the norm, we became obsessed with creating a plant-based candle using luxury fragrance oils that didn't break the bank.

Together, we spent two years researching, formulating, and testing our candles and melts; combining nostalgic and comforting fragrances with our custom blend of American-grown soy and creamy coconut waxes. We are proud to feature braided 100% cotton wicks and recyclable glass jars for your health and the health of our planet. Every hand-poured Southampton Candle Co. product is always phthalate-free, petrochemical-free, and cruelty-free, for candles and melts you can feel good about using in your home or gifting to someone you love.
