A BRIEF HISTORY
Candles have always been special to me. Growing up, my grandmother was my favorite person in the world, and I visited her house every second I could. Her house always smelled lovely, and she always had a great candle burning in the family room. There was a local candle and gift shop that we visited frequently, it was our special place. Every visit, I would get a new candle for my collection, and together we tried out every scent the shop had to offer! I have now carried my love of candles with me into my adult life. There is something so comforting about the glow and scent of a good candle.
Grey Horse Candle Company started as a project to make candles for Christmas gifts for my close friends and family. It wasn’t but a few weeks after the first candles were made, people who saw and smelled my gifted candles were asking to buy some of their own. The demand grew more, so I decided to try my candles out at a small local craft fair. I took 50 candles with me and sold out within the first two hours of the fair, coming home with a waiting list for more! After much trial and error, I finally figured out what I think is the recipe for the perfect candle, and have decided to share my passion with the rest of the world through my ETSY shop! I know you will love Grey Horse Candles. I hope you will try one and let my candles bring a little horsey love into your home!
Rooted in the Mountains of East Tennessee, Grey Horse Candle Company is a conglomeration of one girl’s obsession with horses, love for life on a farm, and passion for creating. Our mission is to share happiness and God’s love, and celebrate the beauty and joy that horses bring to our lives.
My love for my horse, Toby, inspired my idea to create candles for horse lovers like myself. I miss Toby so much when I am away from the barn, (even though it is within walking distance to my house!) I wanted to create something to remind me of him when I couldn’t be with him. Bringing him into the house was definitely not going to be approved by my husband! So I set out to capture some of my favorite things about horses in a jar!
