Country Girls Soy Candles

Country Girls Soy Candles came about as a hobby and love of warm homey Northwest scents. Friends and family enjoyed the scents of their labor and started requesting candles as gifts, then it was gifts for others, that grew into “I’m having a baby shower or bridal shower and need party favors!!!   That was 18 years ago and they're still going strong!
