About Us

Welcome to Great South Bay Candle Company.  My name is Theresa and I have always loved to burn candles because they are aesthetically pleasing.  As I grew older my allergies started to trigger more and more.  I learned that the candles I was burning in my home were unhealthy and full of toxins.  Candles that I was purchasing on the market were mostly made with paraffin wax and low quality fragrance oils.  I learned that paraffin wax is derived from petroleum byproducts which is toxic.  I was subjecting my family to these toxins and needed to find an alternative. 

Great South Bay Candles was started because I wanted to create high quality candles that were healthier, have a wonderful aroma, burn longer and are cost effective.  Importantly don’t expose you and your family to toxic chemicals when you burn them in your home. We are located in Babylon, New York and have been handcrafting soy candles and melts since 2013.  

Great South Bay Candle Company is an artisan candle company, which means we hand pour all of our candle products in small batches.  We have done extensive research on the different varieties of waxes, wicks and fragrance oils to ensure we are using the best eco-friendly materials in all of our candle products. You can feel confident that you are burning a safer candle in your home. 

Eco-Friendly Materials

All of the materials used are purchased from suppliers located within the USA that also provide eco-friendly alternatives. We hand pour all our products using natural soy wax that burns cleaner and longer than paraffin wax or soy blended candles. We use natural cotton lead free wicks and phthalate free fragrance oils because studies show that phthalates may affect hormone levels and aggravate allergy and asthma symptoms. The fragrance oils are also blended with natural essential oils.  Although candles come in beautiful colors we don’t dye our candles because we don’t want to put any unnecessary additives in to help with color retention. 

Our Fragrances

We choose home fragrances inspired by coastal living, nature, and personal recollections. We custom blend most of our fragrances to create a unique and different experience for you. During the fall and winter seasons, we offer candle fragrances that bring the warmth and beauty of the Holiday Season into your home.  We are constantly taking steps to help the environment, most of the packaging we use is made from recycled materials. It’s also biodegradable and/or recyclable to help for a greener planet. 

We are proud to say that our candles are eco-friendly, vegan, paraffin free, dye and additive free. When you light a Great South Bay Candle, you know that you are burning a safer, cleaner candle without omitting toxins, pollutants or carcinogens into the air you breathe while enjoying our beautiful fragrances throughout your home.
