About Willow Ridge Candles
Established in September 2011, Willow Ridge Candles was created after the birth of my first child. My family had always been full of avid candle burners, so while I was working through some health issues, I began to research candle making. My first year of creating soy-based candles, I jumped into the world of fundraise by creating a special candle for Scarlet Rose Farm Equine Rescue. By mid 2012, my candles were picked up by How On Earth in Mattapoisett, Massachusettes. While I still sometimes miss my time working at the Animal Hospital, over the last several years, I’ve seen Willow Ridge Candles grow and expand to include wedding and baby shower favors, opened up a whole sale branch, and even added in a bookish section to my shop.
“Candle-making relaxes me, it’s creative and not overwhelmingly so. Plus, those fragrances are divine!”
Elissa Carr is the candle maker behind Willow Ridge Candle. She loves working with animals and uses her candles to help support them, doing good in person and allowing you to help her care for more animals (and her incredible family!)
Willow was a founding member of Willow Ridge Candles, inspiring not only our name but every person she touched with her inspirational life. Before she passed onto the Rainbow Bridge on Nov 9, 2015, she was able to teach her younger apprentice, Alice, a few things in regard to supervising candle production
Alice the border collie is our new addition to team Willow Ridge. She has taken over Willow’s job as Senior Production Supervisor of Willow Ridge Candles. She is quite adamant that we live up to Willow’s prior mission which was to make the best candles each and every time. Alice is fun and lively to work under. We sure do love our new addition!
