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.

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.
