Sally Lee Candle Co. Story

Sally Lee Candle Co. owners, David and Marie Rhoades, recently decided to make lemonade out of lemons!  Together they experienced the tragedy of losing both of their mothers in March 2008.  This ordeal deeply affected their hearts and souls, but sent them a strong message to re-evaluate life. After almost 25 years of marriage they decided to simplify their world from top to bottom. They had always shared a love for the ocean so their simplification process included relocating from a big home in a large city to a simple home in the quaint little town of Ocean Park, Washington. 

They had formerly run several successful retail and Internet businesses, including the manufacturing of soy candles.  Even though they had thoroughly enjoyed the soy candle business they got caught up in their 9 to 5 jobs, big house and nice car. After many hours of tears and soul searching they decided to follow their hearts and they formed Sally Lee Candle Co. Their new mission in life was to do something rewarding, not just money motivated.  They honestly want to make a difference in the world by helping the environment, educating consumers on taking care of themselves including learning the enjoyment of using earth-friendly candles as well as assisting several worthwhile causes.

David and Marie have spent countless hours researching to find the highest quality essential oils, soy waxes and fragrance oils for their products. They have had many family and friends mention that their soy candles smell much better than major manufacturer's candles (Yankee for example) plus their prices are very fair for such high quality. 

The Rhoades' work hard to produce a superb soy candle for their customer's pleasure and delight. Sally Lee Candle Co. encourages you to take a bit of time each day to soothe your soul...
