Greg Bryant, founder

My romance with candles began as a kid. I was born and raised in Austin, Tx and my mom loved going to the then popular Wicks N Sticks and choosing scented candles that complemented her time at home on the weekends. It was her version of luxury as a working, single parent with little money and three boys. When she passed, I saved a candleholder that she treasured and it remains iconic to her and my memory of those scents.

When our son was born in 2011 my husband and I took turns for the nighttime feedings.  I would go to sleep at 8:00 pm and set my alarm for 2:00 am to take over while he slept before going to work.  I was retired but now a stay-at-home dad.  In the wee hours of the night, feeding and rocking my son, I would turn on one very dim light and light a candle so as not to disrupt the peace and tranquility of those hours when it felt as if I was the only one in the entire world that was awake.  Those candles kept me grounded and focused in those early morning hours and marveling at the tiny boy that I cradled in my arms.

We have always striven to live a “clean” life in our home - organic and natural everything where possible and no harmful parabens ever.  My husband is a cancer survivor - so the health of him, our son and me is the greatest commitment we make in our daily lives. It was natural my love of candles would lead to clean burning, natural soy candles to help create stasis in our home.  

Made from ingredients that you can pronounce and that are found in nature, Candle Daddy candles are safe for your environment and everyone in it.  There is something quite romantic for me about crafting candles and sending their light into the world - your world.  Illuminate your mind, clarify your heart, and create magic in your corner of this great big, blue marble we live on.

Peace & light,

Greg Bryant
