About The Shop

My name is Ashlee and I'm the owner, maker, photographer, packaging expert, customer service representative, and any other roll you can think of here at Bow & Arrow Candle Co!
Bow & Arrow opened in 2015, but I learned candle making a few years earlier. My mom and I made candles in our home and sold them at farmer's markets for a couple of years before I went off to college. I took some of the candle making supplies with me when I moved out and had no idea what it would turn in to!

In 2014, I was a full time freshman in college with a tutoring job on the side. One day, I decided I'd break open the candle making supplies that had been tucked away for a bit and try my hand at making a batch of candles for my college house. This re-ignited the flame I had for making candles, designing labels, taking pictures, etc. and I knew I had to get another business up and running!

I opened Bow & Arrow Candle Co. in 2015 with the thought that I would get to use my shop as a creative outlet and maybe make a few extra dollars here and there and, well, it took off! Shortly after I opened, I ended up quitting my tutoring job and focusing on my growing business full time. I have been making candles all day every day since then and I would never want it to be any different! I have been lucky enough to pay my way through college with all the support I've received from my customers and I'm so grateful!

As I have grown as a business owner and as a person, I have learned the value in sustainability and health/environmental consciousness. I have dedicated my time to creating high quality soy candles that promote a clean-burning, toxin free experience. As part of my eco-friendly efforts, I only use 100% US grown, natural soy wax, cotton core wicks, phthalate and carcinogen free oils, and reusable containers.
All of my candles are poured in jars that can be cleaned out and repurposed for every day use. I shop with carbon-neutral suppliers whenever possible and use biodegradable and recyclable packing materials.

Know that when you support my shop, you're supporting positive environmental consciousness, an expanding creative outlet, and maker that is so grateful for you!

Bow & Arrow's goal is to create the perfect candle for you. If you have an idea in mind that you don't see in the shop, send me a message and I can build a custom order for you!
