Hi, my name is Emily. As long as I can remember I have loved candles. After realizing that many expensive candles were giving me headaches as well as not burning properly, I decided to try making my own candles and that is how 5:14 Candles was born.
After much trial and error, I believe that I have found the perfect combination of jar, wick, wax, and fragrance. One that allows my candles to burn clean all the way down while providing a fantastic scent throw.
I meticulously hand pour each candle in a small workshop located in my home.
I never thought naming a company would be so difficult, and each time I thought I found something clever, I would research the name and find an existing company had already taken it! In frustration, I turned to my bible and there was the answer.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. Matthew 5:14-16
