I started Restored Apothecary in 2016 making soy candles out of my kitchen as gifts for my friends and family. I was inspired at a very young age by my grandparents to create and work with my hands. My grandfather was a woodworker and had an amazing old workshop full of tools, trinkets, antiques and old books. I loved to spend time playing and watching him build furniture, model ships, and hand-carved wooden cars and trains! My grandmother was also very crafty. We would bake, garden and do diy projects around the house. I spent hours as a teenager at the local craft store reading books and researching different art projects and techniques. I always knew that I wanted to have my own hand-crafted business!
I had dabbled with candle making as a kid and after trying everything from painting, making soap to handcrafting jewelry I decided to focus on developing a line of all natural, high quality soy candles. I wanted to make the candles unique and stand out from the crowd, so I began collecting and repurposing bottles and cans to pour the wax into. I wanted to take it a step further and also create my own labels. I have always loved to make people smile and laugh, so I designed labels that have hip, fun, quirky sayings and graphics! I started selling the candles at farmers markets and craft shows around Atlanta and now they are available online and in several retail locations across the United States!
We are committed to protecting our environment and use high quality, natural ingredients that are safe for your family and your pets. By collecting bottles and cans from friends, family and local businesses we are reducing waste that otherwise would end up in a landfill. All of the candles are hand-poured in small batches in our candle studio located in Marietta, GA . We offer a wide variety of unique fragrances and fun, hip trendy labels that are sure to bring a smile to your face and add the perfect ambiance to your home!
