About

Our story and mission

Urban Candle Company is a St. Louis business located in the heart of South City.  Our brand reflects our love for the City of St. Louis.  

Our candles are hand poured with care in small batches.  We pride ourselves in crafting premium soy candles that burn clean and are long-lasting.  All of our candles are poured using phthalate-free fragrances infused with essential oils and 100% cotton wicks.  We aim to bring an artistic and creative flair to our labeling and many of the labels include photos we have taken around the city.  We research the best candle making techniques so that your candle is fully fragrant with a beautiful flame.  It is truly a synergy of fire and scent ~ the right pour temperature, the right amount of scent, the right wick...we are passionate about giving you the most amazing candle we can create! 

We have a heart for taking care of the earth and purposefully reduce, reuse and recycle.   We love to recycle beautiful glassware for our candles.  We have a special line of candles we call "Urban Renewal".  We search estate sales around town looking for great glassware and have found some amazing glass pieces that look great filled with a candle and beautiful flame.   We also love to refill special candle holders and glassware for people. 

And we give back.  We believe that we are here to make this world a bit of a better place by being here -and our business reflects that.  We raise funds through sharing sales profits in fund-raising events with non-profit organizations who sell our candles.  And we give by donation to organizations that are near and dear to us.   In 2020, we have raised funds for the Covid-19 Emergency Relief Fund, Siteman Cancer Center, St. Gabriel the Archangel School, The Angel Band Project and Tenth Life Cat Rescue.   We are small but mighty in our mission!  

We love to share our craft with others and enjoy meeting new people and old friends at local markets and fairs.  We hope you love our candles as much as we love making them.
