Top 5 candle brands made in the USA
Goose Creek Candles
A family-owned company making candles in the USA since 1998.

A fifth-generation, family-owned company specializing in beeswax.
Founded in 1869 by Amos Ives Root, Root Candles still holds the same values from more than 150 years ago: handcrafting high-quality, perfectly-fragranced beeswax candles on American soil.
Be whisked away back home with a whiff of a candle.
Homesick candles capture the essence of your home state or city, bringing you back to childhood or a favorite place you’ve traveled to. All candles are poured by hand in the USA.
What started as an American dream in a paint can has evolved into a successful candle making company.
Dee McCall made her first candles in vintage paint cans, eventually graduating to glass jars when her company started to take off. Today, McCall’s candles are widely available across the country — and still proudly made in America.
American Story Candles
A veteran-owned company serving up iconic American scents.
Flood your home with the smell of fresh-baked apple pie or spicy cedar garland for the holidays while supporting a veteran-owned business that’s dedicated to bolstering the US economy and American workers.
Do major retailers stock American-made candles?
Many made-in-USA candle brands are small, family-owned companies, so you may have to purchase on their individual websites. However, there are several American-made candle brands that are available on online marketplaces like Amazon and Etsy.
How do I know if a candle is made in the USA?
Look for “made in USA” or other similar terms on the product page of the candle you’re interesting in buying. Usually, this information will be very clear and easy to find. Otherwise, go directly to the brand’s website and look for information about where its products are made. Many brands state that all of their candles are American-made on their websites.
If you’re still having trouble finding this information, reach out to the brand directly.
Popular candle brands that are NOT made in the USA
These two popular candle brands do not appear to manufacture in the US.
- DW Home. DW Home states on its website that it uses “US developed fragrances and wax formulas,” but it does not make its products in the US. The customer service team let us know that all candles are hand-poured in Vietnam.
- Bath & Body Works. The company has stated that all of its products are made in North America, Europe and South Korea. While some candles have a “Made in Canada” label on the bottom, others do not list any country of origin. Finder has reached out to this brand for more information and is awaiting a response.
