Backyard Candles, a small batch candle company founded by Justin Healy in 2017, is a shining example of creativity and sustainability coming together to create a unique and environmentally friendly product. It all began when Justin, a college student with a penchant for healthy beverages, found himself holding a coconut shell after consuming its flesh. Realizing the beverage industry wasn’t his calling, he was soon captivated by the mesmerizing flame of a burning candle in his apartment, which sparked an idea.
Nine months of meticulous testing and fragrance creation culminated in the launch of Backyard Candles in November 2017. The inaugural product line and bestseller, coconut candles, made with real half shell coconuts that FLOAT, garnered immediate praise. Justin’s decision to upcycle coconut shells not only contributed to environmental conservation but also lent a distinctive aesthetic appeal to the candles.
Determined to continually innovate, Backyard Candles introduced “The Backyard Candle,” designed for outdoor use with a focus on repelling insects. Crafted from all-natural soy wax, featuring cotton or wood wicks, and infused with pure therapeutic-grade essential oils like citronella and lemongrass, these candles enhance outdoor experiences.
Taking their mission further, Backyard Candles embraces the belief that we all share a collective backyard. They draw inspiration from the four elements—Earth, Air, Water, and Fire—to create meaningful connections through their products, thus creating the Elemental Collection. The Earth Collection employs concrete vessels, the Air Collection features glass vessels, the Water Collection utilizes coconut shells, and the Fire Collection embraces ceramic vessels. These representations of the elements serve as a reminder of our interconnectedness with nature.
As Backyard Candles strives to balance these elements within themselves, they craft each handmade coconut shell candle with care, using all-natural soy wax and cotton or wood wicks. The result is a product that not only illuminates our spaces but also deepens our connection to the world around us, reminding us of the beauty and harmony found in our collective backyard.
