Spread County Joy

As this area becomes more and more home for me, I look forward to expressing that through the candle descriptions and scent options. Each candle's name and scent were chosen with care and intention. 


Last year (summer 2021), I got a job that brought me up to Aroostook county. I moved from Connecticut, though I was born and raised in Wisconsin. Having spent the last few years in Connecticut, I was thrilled to be moving to an area that is so much like my home state. And while we don’t have lobster in land locked Wisconsin, we do have the wildlife and forests and I’ve never felt more at home than here in Aroostook County. 

I’ve always enjoyed helping my mom make candles for her own business and I was inspired to create a candle line based on my new home. It’s fun and interesting how many businesses here incorporate “Maine” in their title (I even find myself typing maine instead of main sometimes) and I think it’s funny so I decided to do that too. Thus the Mainely Aroostook Candle Co was created.

When I'm not working, you'll find me hiking, skiing, and in general enjoying all that The County has to offer.
