Our Story

Chalkboard Candles were sparked from an idea I had to make eco-friendly, quality candles with a purpose.  After being an elementary school teacher for over 10 years and burning hundreds of candles in our home, I decided to combine my desire to create a richly scented, natural candle with a mission to bring awareness and gratitude to the sacrifices teachers make for their students each day. 



Chalkboard Candles are richly scented, 100% natural coconut wax candles.  Every candle is created with natural essential oils along with phthalate-free premium fragrance oils and lead-free cotton wicks. We hand-pour each candle in small batches in an 11oz glass tumbler that can be reused or recycled.  Our candles burn for approximately 60+ hours and contain 8.5 oz of wax.  Each candle's school-themed scent has been hand-picked for year-round enjoyment and tested for an optimal burn.


Chalkboard Candle Co. believes more should be done to show our appreciation for teachers.  Teachers work extremely long hours, put their heart and souls into educating their students, and make a substantial impact on so many young people while being underpaid, undervalued, and under-appreciated. Chalkboard Candle Co's goal is to make sure we show teachers they are appreciated all year long.  A portion of each candle sold will go directly to a teacher via a check sent directly to them.
