About - Driftwood Candle Co.

Driftwood Candle Co. – Who Are We?

Driftwood Candle Co. was created by Alex & Ashley as an addition to their already existing handmade crafts company. While the crafts were fun, we still felt that we needed more. So began the early part of 2014.

We knew that we wanted a sustainable business, one that would be made locally in the USA, while providing the highest quality and healthy products that we could. We had thought of making candles in the past, and decided that we would visit this idea more. We found a supplier of the best quality soy wax, and spent months trying out and testing wicks, jars and many fragrances and dye colors. In time our excellent soy candles were born.

Over time we have branched out to include high quality soaps and bath salts to our product line. With some encouragement from friends we found another good product base, and began the process of testing soaps, and salts. These salts and soaps are now available in our store, and the gift shops that carry our products.

Now after years of selling our products in the Westport, WA area, we have began to branch out to allow more people access to our products through a network of gifts shops. These shops can be found on the ‘Find A Store’ page.
