I started hand-pouring candles in my small New Orleans apartment nearly 5 years ago and I have since fallen in love with the process of combining scents, oils, waxes, and different vessels. We first started selling my homemade candles in our original Uptown retail location, and since returning home to Petaluma, CA we have taken our candle production to a new level.
Shortly after settling down in California I set out to launch an entirely new line, and I spent nearly two years experimenting and developing the collection that we're now proud to offer fellow retailers.
Truck & Barter Apothecary was born out of a desire to create a balanced assortment of candles that are bold and complex, yet not overpowering. I was determined to create a sophisticated product using natural soy wax, phthalate-free oils, and the highest quality scents available.
Every single element of our candles-- from the wicks and waxes, to the vessels and boxes, are made in the USA, and are hand-poured in small batches here in Northern California. In addition to our candles we are excited to announce our series of goats milk soaps, which are made from farm fresh California goats milk. These soaps are naturally exfoliating, hydrating, and revitalizing.
Each bar is stamped with our company logo, and like our candles, everything from the raw ingredients to the packaging, were made in the USA
