People ask, “why Swan Creek Candles?" What makes us different? Well, for nearly 40 years we have been family owned and operated. Our factory is located in Swanton, Ohio and we employ many members of the American work force from our local community. All of our candles and wax products are made in house, and all of our products are independently tested at our lab to ensure the highest quality.Our American Soybean WaxTM burns pure, with beauty and aroma; plus, it burns longer than paraffin AND is made from a naturally renewable source.
