Welcome to the A&T Apothecary! Established in 2022, A&T was created in an attempt to make candles and aromatherapy that didn’t smell absolutely horrible and give me a headache. I am a ticketed electrician, so making candles was used as time to unwind and enjoy the little things.
I was always that kid that you’d find in a corner drawing or doing some sort of arts and crafts. So as an adult with a busy life, needing that creative outlet, and having been a fan of candles for many years I began hand pouring my own candles and researching how to make candles that were not just better for you, but showcasing scents that often don't get the attention they deserve!
Soy wax was a clear choice as it doesn't release chemicals into the air, as some cheaper options do. The burn time is significantly longer as well and using cotton wicks helps increase it. As a result, our long burning candles have an 80 hour burn time!
What initially started as a personal creative outlet, quickly became something more as friends and family began requesting candles to burn at home.... and a business was born!
At A&T, we don't believe that candles should ever be boring! You can walk into any store and buy a lavender or vanilla candle.... but often people are surprised by new and amazing scents like fresh tobacco, leather, and bergamot, to name a few. Combine that with some sassy, often sexy names and we think you've got a recipe for success!
I'm so glad to have you along on this crazy ride!!
