The Glory Candle started through faith and a love for handcrafting.
Because candles are part of our self-care routine and we are worried about the candles’ toxins, we began to make a nontoxic and cleaner product. Since then, we could not stop making them as a hobby. In 2020, during a fast lasting seven days, we prayed for financial freedom. God answered us by telling us to turn the hobby into a business. The concept for The Glory Candle was born.
We have spent a year researching and testing the products and processes. We found a formula that worked. Today, we make each candle by hand with God’s love added. Our goal is to offer you high-quality products that are natural and safe to burn. Our mission is to foster education to underprivileged children. We are selling them as a light for the world.
The Glory Candle has brought so much love and happiness to our family. We hope the candles bring joy to your family and to each child we help with education
Happiness is a scented candle made with love.
meet our founder
My name is Johane Herard. Making candles has always been a passion of mine. I love the way they make me slow down, reflect, and consider all of the good I have in my life. Lighting candles is a self-care routine that brings joy. Over time, I wanted to spread this joy to others.
When I first began making and selling candles, I saw this as an opportunity to fulfill a few needs all at once.
First, I noticed that there were not a lot of clean candles on the market. Many were full of toxic chemicals which were harmful for me and my family’s health. I experimented with different types of wax and settled on natural coconut wax. It was important to me, too, that the environment was not negatively impacted by my candle making. All of our ingredients are as sustainably-sourced as possible, as well as vegan and cruelty-free. I finally found the formula for a candle that was good for my self-care, my family, and the environment!
Even more importantly, God laid on my heart that my candle business needed to do something more. It wasn’t just about the clean ingredients or spreading joy to others. I began to pray in earnest how God wanted to use my candle business, and through these prayers, I discovered the Delmas Community School located in Delmas, Haiti.
This school offers education to underprivileged children and adults. They serve over 300 students, and despite its size and financial challenges, the students experience great success on their exams. Some have gone on to become lawyers, accountants, and engineers.
For every candle sold, we donate a portion of the sale to the Delmas Community School. Because we want to be God’s light to the world.
The Glory Candle began as a hobby, but we have been blessed to experience financial freedom through it. We are excited to offer the world clean, nontoxic candles with beautiful scents such as Citrus Prosecco, Coffee n’ Cream, French Lavender, and Island Paradise from our signature collection. We also have seasonal lines, including the fall and winter scents of Baked Apple, Frasier Fir, Pumpkin Waffles, and Red Currant.
