You might have noticed that our menu is newly expanded, though not all links currently work. We are busy developing the tutorials to get the site even more content. You should see about one new tutorial per day for the next little while as we hustle to get more content online for our grand opening. Thank you to our friends at CandleTech for pushing us to show all the original content we have planned to bring you all in the next month.

Check out our candle recycling tutorial today!

Grace Hockley has been added as a support Candle Maker to the community forums. Grace has written a lot of the articles found on this site, and will be helping with her expertise in the forums. Welcome aboard, Grace!

Our founder, Andrew Edmond, comes from a long line of candle makers... The first known candle makers in our family started in New York through the 1930's-1950's with Diamond Candle, which was one of the largest candle manufacturers in the US. Andrew's grandfather, Jerome Edmond, moved to Los Angeles in the 1950's and eventually built a west coast candle empire, which is to this day one of the major candle manufacturers in the world. Andrew, a fifth generation Candle Maker, is proud to run and which extends yet another generation, and this time, into the new world of the Internet. Imagine what the employees of Diamond Candle would have said about all this!
