Hi, we’re Dennis and Rhonda.
Welcome to the Ava & Addi Candle Collection! We are so excited to share our love of candles with you.
We’ve always loved burning candles, but when 2020 forced us to be home more than ever we started researching how to make our own candles. What started out as a fun hobby quickly became our passion; we LOVE making candles. What’s more is we use the highest quality ingredients.
The only thing we love more than each other and our candles, are our granddaughters, Ava & Addison (Addi). This candle collection is inspired by them. In fact, a portion of each candle sold goes directly toward their college fund.
Why choose Ava & Addi?
Natural soy wax, LX Pretabbed lead and zinc-free wicks, and clean smelling scents and fragrances.
Soy wax candles have many advantages: an extended burn time, no unsightly black soot, and a reputation as a desirable, naturally-derived product. It’s no surprise that soy candles make up more than half of the candles on the market today. LX wick is a specially braided flat cotton wick that maintains a slight curl when burning. The curl moves the tip of the wick into the hottest part of the flame, which helps to minimize or eliminate carbon buildup (mushrooming), reduce smoking, and provide a 'self-trimming' effect, which creates a very stable and consistent flame. LX wicks are lead and zinc-free.
Our clean smelling scents meet high standards for every fragrance we produce. Our exclusion of cancer-causing ingredients that require a Proposition 65 warning in California, as well as similar ingredients not on the Prop 65 list. Our scents and fragrances are 100% phthalate-free.
We hand pour every candle ourselves. We work together to give each candle the care that evokes its personality and style...and a little of ours as well. We pack every order from our small studio in Vista California, ensuring every candle meets our high standards. And we have fun doing it. Every day...all the makings of the perfect candle!
Our candles come in three sizes:
6 oz. Tins for an office, travel, or smaller spaces.
9 oz. Tall candles are beautiful and will fill any room. We have customers tell us they can get more than 60 hours of burn time.
12 oz. candles are for larger rooms or to make the whole house smell amazing!
Thank you for stopping by. We hope you find something you love!
