Katie started brainstorming about Elias & Jane at the end of 2019 when she decided to leave her career in nursing. Her and her husband came to realize how quickly their 1 year old son, Israel Elias, was growing and she didn't want to miss out on a thing.
Katie has always loved to keep busy and learn about new things. After researching about the candles she had been using in her home, she found that they were full of petroleum, burnt off toxic fumes, and used lead wicks. Those types of candles would not be used in their home anymore. She started researching for a clean and safe burning candle. The business name "Elias & Jane" is the combination of her and her sons middle names.
Elias & Jane Candles are made from 100% soy wax and use a cotton braided wick that is lead and zinc free. This results in a clean burning candle that is free of toxins, carcinogens, and air pollutants. We only use top quality fragrances that are infused with essential oils, and are always phthalate free. Our soy candles will always show the natural color and characteristics of soy and will remain dye-free. All of our candles are made in small batches with love and dedication. We keep your family and safety in mind; all candles go through a rigorous testing before they are put up for sale.
