sun dog candle merely exists because I can’t keep plants alive and needed a new hobby during the Covid-19 quarantine of 2020. I was inspired by two friends and co-workers of mine who started businesses and brands of their own.
I thought, if I made my own candles, I could save some money! After much research I learned, candles are indeed expensive to make. The more affordable brands are mass produced. Small batch, handmade candles are much higher quality when you have full control of what goes into your product and how. I wanted to share what I make at reasonable prices for a quality product.
My business name and logo was inspired by my rescue dog Mack, who enjoys basking in the sun from time to time. It is important to me to use this as an opportunity to give back, so five percent of all sales will be donated to non-profit animal rescue and welfare organizations.
