Wick 'N Flame was created when Chris De Santiago made handmade soy candles as gifts for Christmas of 2015. His products were an instant hit with his friends and family, and they encouraged him to go into business. Chris had always dreamed of being an entrepreneur and working for himself since he was a child. In fact, when he was a kid, he even pretended to own his own business and sold various crafts to his family. He managed to launch his official company, Wick 'N Flame Candle Company, on February 16th, 2016.
What makes the Wick 'N Flame an original brand is their high regard for their carbon footprint. Many mass produced candle brands are machine made with fossil fuel resources - many produced with paraffin wax, which is a petroleum byproduct. Other popular candle brands use zinc core wicks, which are reliant on zinc mining. Some brands also claim to be "eco-friendly" by using a soy wax "blend" which in reality, blends soy wax with paraffin wax. On the other hand, Wick 'N Flame candles are made of 100% pure soybean oil, which is biodegradable, renewable, and a sustainable resource.
Their fragrances come from natural essential oils. Customers can choose from two types of eco-friendly wicks - natural cotton or crackling wood. They can also buy reed diffusers and room sprays. Every season, the Wick 'N Flame comes out with specialty fragrances, ranging from summer's Black Tahitian Coconut, to winter's Cranberry Apple Spice.
Chris maintains that the most important aspect of his business will always be quality, and that his drive comes from his customers' appreciation for his quality ingredients. He plans to keep his workflow, from pouring wax to packaging candles, handmade.
Due to COVID-19, Wick 'N Flame have had to reduce their number of sales. Their pop-up shops at Williams-Sonoma and Pottery Barn have had to close. "My products are only sold online, and it is very challenging to sell fragrances by mail, when the majority of customers want to smell fragrances in person before buying," Chris says. But he believes keeping a business thriving is "giving back to appropriate charities, such as St. Jude Children's Research Hospital [and] partnering with Pottery Barn and Williams-Sonoma stores," says Chris.
