5B&Co. Candlemakers, 6231 Brookside Plaza, hand pour more than 175 uniquely fragranced candles onsite. The candles are a high quality, American-made product with the best oils, clean burning soy blended wax, and lead free cotton wicks. 5B&Co. candles burn cleanly for at least 15 hours and scent a large area. They also use recycled glass when possible.
They hand pour tealights, votives, tins, glass containers, and pillar candles. They craft car air fresheners, diffusers, and room sprays. Now you can bring in any of your old containers and have them filled with your choice of fragranced wax for $2 per oz.
Owner Lori Woods works with event planners and brides when doing favors or gifts. She has the ability to customize color and scent. If you like the scent of Gardenia but need a red candle, they can make it happen. For the business customers, they can make promotional or thank you gifts and private label special scents just perfect for your business. They can personalize according to theme and/or budget.
