Mississippi Candle Co. was founded by Jessica Simon in 2018. Jessica was heartbroken after the passing of her dog and wanted to find a hobby to keep herself busy. She started making candles for her family and friends. Her husband, Josh, encouraged her to start a business because he knew the candles were better than the most popular brands. Jessica first named her business Tana LaRue Candles after her dog that passed. She changed the name to become closer to the community.
"We believe in supporting the communities we serve and giving back to the community that supports us." Mississippi Candle Co. donated more than 15 dozen candles to families who lost power during the 2020 hurricane season. "Living in the south we know hurricanes are devastating. First, you may lose power then lose everything in your refrigerator. We wanted to spread light to our community and neighboring states during a time of darkness."
Our products are made with 100% soy wax and lead free cotton wicks to support a healthy and safe environment. Remember to never leave your candles unattended and do not burn for more than 4 hours at a time.
