"Candles are the epitome of a simple, small luxury that anyone can enjoy. I wanted to create something that brings a level of joy (or comfort, or tranquility) to my customers, while being mindful about nontoxic, ethically-sourced materials, as well as environmentally sound practices -- all at an accessible price point."
Borealis Candle Co. creates clean burning soy-coconut wax candles with sophisticated, nature-inspired fragrances to warm any home. All Borealis Candle Co. candles are hand-poured in small batches in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania by the creator and founder, Norah Whitmore. She takes pride in the quality and sourcing of each material: from wax to wick to jar, it is her utmost priority to protect the health of her customers and their environments, ensuring that NO harmful phthalates, dyes, preservatives, or lead are incorporated into Borealis candles. And of course, Borealis candles are both vegan and cruelty-free. Environmental stewardship is also very important to to Whitmore: Borealis Candle Co.’s signature amber glass jar and gold lid are both beautiful and recyclable.
