About Us

WaxEssence is a small business started by Frances Tandoh in Cincinnati, OH. We have been in business since 2013.

There's nothing more soothing than lighting beautifully scented candles to set a warm and cozy atmosphere. We can all admit that homes feel more relaxed with these well-scented objects. 

We've achieved great success in creating unique candles that do not only make a home smell amazing or feel homier but add to the décor by accentuating the freshness and overall visual appeal.

You'll fall in love with our unique containers and fragrances. We hope to continue satisfying our clients as we grow with more distinctive products and services.

All our candles are made from 100% Soy Wax and Coconut Wax—vegan, cruelty-free and phthalate free and infused with natural essential oils.

Many reasons we prefer to use soy:

  • It burns longer
  • It doesn't interfere with the aromas of meals
  • Soy is a renewable resource
  • Soy burns cleaner and produces as much as 90 percent less soot
  • It does not produce as much heat
  • Purchasing soy supports American farmers

Many reasons we prefer to use Coconut wax:

Coconut wax is produced by pressing the oil out of the coconut meat and going through hydrogenation. It is filtered and cleaned, giving you 100% natural and fully biodegradable wax.

It is a renewable and high yield crop that means fewer coconuts are needed to get a sizable product—making it one of the most eco-friendly waxes on the market.
