Rekindle Candle Co. is run by husband and wife duo Matt and Kayley Mewbourne. They are passionate about serving others, loving on their community, and bringing non-toxic products into your homes. Matt works full-time managing the Rekindle business from packaging online orders to talking with customers to handling large wholesale inquiries. Kayley handles all the marketing and social media aspects of the business while also running her own photography business as well. Their other full-time job is raising their 1.5 year old son, Bridger. Most days you can find him running around the shop watering our numerous plants :)
Rekindle started as an idea in late 2017 as our founder, Matt, was about to finish up his last couple years of college. One night the idea came to him to rekindle his love for ceramics and art by putting candles in handmade containers, selling or giving them away, then incentivizing people to reuse or refill them. Since then a lot has changed. Matt, like many millennials, does nothing related to his college degree. And we no longer do ceramics. But the idea of extending the life of containers by reusing or refilling them is the thread of sustainability interwoven from Rekindle's inception to its current state.Ever since we began we wanted to use quality components that were good not only for smelling but also for the planet and the people living on it. We use 100% soy wax domestically, sustainably and ethically grown, harvested and manufactured in the United States. Most of our glassware is also made of recycled glass. Our wood wicks are domestically and sustainably sourced from Forestry Stewardship Council certified lumber mills. And our fragrance oils are free of parabens, phthalates, and other hazardous and toxic chemicals.
