Welcome to Parable Candle Company

Welcome to Parable Candle Company


The reason I do the work that I do is
because I really love to make people happy. When they come in the store, or I
see people out with my products, it’s like it’s bringing them some joy. I want to bring some light and some joy into people’s worlds, and it’s really
important to me to give people what they need, and I think that is a healthier
lifestyle, and a better general environment and self-care. I’m Elaine. I’m
the founder of Parable Candle Company where we make hand-poured candles, and
gourmet bath and body products, and we do that to bring you some positivity and
beauty into your life. Our company motto is “Be a light in the world”, which is
actually the parable of light, which is what the company is named after, The
Parable Candle Company. And it’s mainly being positive, and if you’ve got a light
to shine, go shine it in the world, don’t keep it to yourself. You share that light,
and you do something positive for other people, and hopefully that will be a
chain reaction, and they will do the same for others. At Parable Candle Company we
offer hand-poured candles that we make ourselves, gourmet bath and body products,
like hand creams, bath bombs, bath salts, liquid hand soaps that we make right on
the premises. What’s really unique about our hand-poured candles is there’s care
taken with every single jar, every pillar, everything that goes out of the store. We
do lots of test burns to make sure we have the best quality in the burn, that
there’s lots of scent throw, so you get a lot of scent in your home or your office
or wheverer you’re using your products. In addition to offering amazing products in
our store, we offer classes. We do candle making from tins and jars, to more
advanced pillars and molds. And then we also have soap making classes – easy
things that kids can do and beginners can do, to the more concentrated things
that take a little more time and a little more safety, like working
with lye and doing the cold process soaps, a little more advanced. Our customized
gift-giving services are a great option for people that are busy and they really
want help, but they don’t know what to get people, or they just don’t have time. I have
lots of especially men come in and say I need this for my wife or my girlfriend or
my daughter. I’m not really sure what can you do? I have trays that I can build
gifts with, I can do all kinds of wrapping. I can say what’s your budget, or
do you know what they like, and I just put the gifts together, and
people love that. We also do corporate gift-giving. I’ve done large orders for
clients that they can give their employees or to their clients. They really like
what we’ve done. I’ve put a lot of care as well as customizing exactly what they
want including labeling with their names, or whatever they want to say on their
candles, or on the gift boxes that we put them in. I did go to college into nursing
school right out of high school, and I’ve been a nurse for 28 years.
I’ve done really well as a nurse, but I was ready for a change and something a
little different, a different lifestyle. And I really wanted to do something that
would make me happy. And I started making these candles, and I just really, really
enjoy it. It is my happy place. I really love just being either at my store in my
workshop. or teaching people how to make things. It’s really fun for me, and if I’m
going to be doing something all day, that’s what I want to be doing. What’s really
unique about Parable Candle Company is when we’re making our candles and our
other products, we really have a lot of fun. There’s a lot of joy in the store.
And we put all that care into everything we do. Every little piece gets handled
and checked, and it’s the best going out, and I’m really proud of that. And I
really think that’s our secret ingredient. I hope when people buy our
products, or give them as gifts that that love and joy that we put into them, that
that translates into their experience using the products. The gap that we’re
filling in the marketplace is really having an experience of buying in a
boutique with gifts. We have jewelry, and we have these wonderful candles, and all
these wonderful scents. I love it when somebody walks in, the first thing they
say is oh my gosh it smells so good in here! There’s so many products that we
can pull together, and that’s a gap that most places, if you’re going to a big
store, you’re not going to get that personalized service. I really want to
bring a little bit of light and joy into the world. That’s important to me because
I want to encourage others to do the same. And I think we all can do something to
make a change. And anything positive that you can do for your fellow man is just
worth it to me. If I can encourage that, that makes it all worth it.
