Founded in 2007, The Candle Lab is a Columbus-based fragrance brand specializing in natural gourmet soy candles and custom fragrance. We have three stores located in the downtown shopping districts of Worthington the Short North and our newest location, Grandview We also have a store located in the Over the Rhine area of Cincinnati and we also recently opened our first out of state location in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Each store offers hand-poured candles in more than 120 fragrances, pour-your-own custom-scented candles, customizable home fragrance products, and small-batch natural bath and body products. 

The Candle Lab candles burn cleanly and evenly for up to 80 hours due to our trusted formula of natural soy wax, cotton paper wicks, and pure fragrance oils. Customers can buy the pre-poured candles right off the shelf or sit down at the Fragrance Bar and blend scents together to create their own custom combinations. We are set up to pour all the time without reservations, but we prefer a heads-up if you want to bring in a group of 4 or more. We specialize in candle pouring parties for all ages, with packages for kids' birthday parties, boy and girl scout troops, girls' night out parties, bachelorette parties, baby showers, and any other excuse to get together for a fun and creative event.

We also offer wholesale candles, private label candles, corporate gifts, wedding and shower favors, fundraising for community groups/sports teams/churches, and custom fragrance consultation for branding or special events.
