Capitol Hill Candle Company, launched in 2014, is dedicated to using natural, local, hand-poured supplies. We use only soy wax and high quality essential oils and fragrances. Our philosophy is to use fewer, naturally-sourced quality ingredients that capture the beauty of the Pacific Northwest. Founder Jeremie Berg started the company after many years of creating candles and bath & body gifts for family and friends. He learned the art of candle making from his inspiring grandmother Celia Espepeold, who sold candles from her front porch to all her friends and neighbors and whose candles still light many homes with joy and fill them with fragrances of pine, cut grass and essential oils. 10% of the proceeds from the sale of every candle goes directly to the IslandWood organization, in honor of Jeremie's brother Joel, an outdoorsman who appreciated the beauty of nature and is the inspiration for the logo and creative aesthetic of our company.
