Our Story

Atlas Candle Co Founder


I'm LeJeanne, my friends call me LJ. I am a third generation artisan. After earning my degree in marketing I decided to continue the family tradition of soap and candle making as a hobby. In 2011 I sold my first candle at a local holiday pop-up. The response was so positive that I dedicated the next few years to elevating my skills by learning from industry leading chandlers. The result is a premium scented candle line.

Coupled with my background in marketing and brand development I re-branded my candles to Atlas. The name Atlas is from the cultural influence of cartography (the study and practice of making maps). The meaning is a personal reminder that life is a journey. 

Our Process:

Atlas candles are hand-blended with domestically grown soy beans and scented with pure essential oils and premium fragrances. Cotton wicks braided with thin paper threads provides a firm structure without the need for a core. This combination emits a clean, complex layered aroma with generous burn times. 

Our Mission:

We aim to grow our business with the same high level of care and integrity we use to create our formulations with honor and respect for our family traditions and hope for a bright future for all.

Our Promise:

To inspire the light within.™
