Maker Spotlight: Companion Candles

Loren Lewin, founder of Companion Candles, shares her story about starting her small business, the tools she loves, and the one thing you'll never regret as an entrepreneur.


the story behind companion candles

"After many hours of quarantine with my pup, I realized that my store bought candles did not live up to their claims (or my standards) and were filled with dirty ingredients that were not only harmful to me, but my dog.

I threw out my store bought candles and started making my own homemade, clean version. I never looked back.

Companion Candles was founded in 2021 and donates a portion of proceeds to animal welfare organizations."

"We will be iterating and adding new products – keep an eye out, they are coming soon!" 


my greatest lessons 

"You don’t know what you don’t know – learn to outsource and listen to others ideas! Work is life, and life's too short to hate your work. Everything you can imagine is real."
