Meet the Maker

My name is Annabel and Seventh and Oak was born from my need for quality, eco-friendly candles that smelled great but were not overbearing. I believe it’s a little magical, what the right candle can do to any space. From eucalyptus and lavender for relaxation to cinnamon in the fall, I found myself collecting scents through the year.

However, it wasn’t long before I realized that the majority of the larger candle companies used paraffin wax - a by-product of petroleum - to make those sweet smelling candles I loved so much.

So, since I wanted to do my part in caring for Mother Earth (and still wanted my candles), I decided to start making my own.

After making my very first candle, it became clear to me  that it needed to be shared with fellow candle lovers, so I went on to create my very first collection specifically for people seeking a more calm and relaxing environment following a busy day - or week.
