Meet the makers!

Odd Bird Candle Co started out as an idea between Austin and Mikelle wanting to create and start a business together. Mikelle has a healthy obsession with candles and home fragrances, while Austin is all about business and creativity. They decided to join forces and create a soy candle company! Both have a graphic design background and while Mikelle continues her career in that, Austin is now a professional touring musician. Outside their every day jobs and creating candles - they love finding local eateries, reading, writing music, cooking, or hanging with their dog Finley!


A clean burning candle, is a happy candle.

We wanted to make sure that whatever we created, it would be a clean, eco friendly product and that's just what our candles are. We've done a lot of research on different types of wax, wicks, and fragrances to make sure we are using and creating the best products.

Using a soy wax was important to us because it is one of the cleanest burning waxes and is ethically sourced.

The wooden wick is non-toxic, vegan, eco friendly and produces less soot than other wicks out there.

Lastly, we use fine fragrance oils that are phthalate free and non-toxic.

Once your candle is done, our jars can even be reused!
