Here’s how it works: we partner with boutiques and small businesses across the country to create a collection of home fragrance products personalized for YOUR customers.

We are Family

At Ella B. Candles, family has always come first. Our company was born in our home, as a project to teach our daughters how to develop a product line. When we made the decision for Christopher to leave IBM to grow Ella B. Candles full time, we knew that it wasn’t just the four of us anymore. We were starting a new family; a work family. As our work family has grown, we’ve carried over a lot of the values and traditions that we have in our own home. Here at the Hive, we aren’t separated by offices or cubicle walls. We work side by side, constantly in communication. Every member of our family is a unique individual with gifts and needs and fears and hopes. We’ve shared stories and prayers; laughter and tears; moments of triumph and hardship. We’ve seen it all, and we’ve faced it together – as a family. There’s a special bond that is forged when you work together. This is not a solo gig; every piece of the puzzle matters. From the first wax chips that are melted to the last bow that gets tied, so many hands touch every order. We all bring something a little bit different to the table, but when we come together, we create something beautiful. And if you ask us, that’s the kind of family worth celebrating.
