Gabriel John Candles is a boutique candle company that started as a conversation one summer evening. “It started as a little challenge brought on by family testing my creative ability…. After much experimenting, studying, and dedication, I poured my first candles in my home kitchen in the Andersonville neighborhood of Chicago, IL. The goal was to create a luxurious candle line that was both affordable and Eco-sensible while capturing the Artisan touch,” says Gabriel.
The Holiday Collection was created to bring the spirit of the season into the home and transform any room into a warm place for family and friends. The Collection, comprised of simple names, is some of the most complex blends of oils. The candles are also poured into the contemporary tumblers for easy placement and added luxury to all environments. The candle is 11 oz with a burn time of approx 60 hours.
“Our candles are created in the same way that artisans have been creating candles for many years – selecting each and every ingredient, blending by hand and in small batches, carefully pouring the wax into each container, allowing the candles to cure and packaging them by hand. We operate in a studio, not in a large factory with machinery. All of our products have been researched, selected, tested and designed by us and made with care. In every step of the process, we try to uphold the artisanal tradition. Even our boxes are handcrafted to give that truly personal touch and completed with a hand tied bow.”
“Since we are a small company, each of our candles is handcrafted in small batches and then carefully wrapped in its own eco-friendly packaging. We use earth-friendly materials wherever we can – our packaging is 100% recycled fiber and 80% post-consumer paper and is fully biodegradable, recyclable, and compostable. Our labels are made of 100% recycled paper while our inks are all soy based and hand tied bows are made of natural or recycled materials. All our fillers are completely biodegradable while our packing boxes are also recyclable.”
