I was sitting in a cubicle when Winding Wick Candles was formed. In 2015 I was working at a desk job typing up prescriptions for an insurance company. I quickly realized that I wasn't feeling fulfilled, and I decided to start my own candle company. A couple months after I had this idea I quit my full-time job and took a part-time position at a hospital. This allowed me to work on my business during the week.
I experimented with many different waxes, wicks, and fragrances until I was satisfied with my candles. Friends and family were very helpful to critique my scents and designs. In my first couple of years of business I sold my candles here and there on sites like Etsy, and I sold at local farmers markets. In 2017 I took a hiatus from my business after my son was born.
In October of 2018 I had an idea for a totally unique design that I had never seen in stores before. I called them my "latte style candles." I'm a coffee lover and I designed the candles to look like a latte with fun toppings. It was a major learning curve but this design resulted in hundreds of orders in a months time! I was blown away at the response.
Over the years, I have grown a YouTube channel, made Winding Wick Candles my full-time job, and landed features in major publications.
In 2021 we opened our first Winding Wick Candles retail location in downtown Ferris, TX. We make all of our candles in house, and we offer unique items in our store from other small businesses around the world.
The goal of Winding Wick Candles is to showcase the art of decorative candle making. We also want to provide unique scents and experiences for our customers.

About the candles:
My candles are made from a paraffin wax blend. With proper candle care you will be able to enjoy highly scented candles. Make sure to keep your wick trimmed to 1/4 inch to get the best results from your candles.
