THE MAKERS: DOUG & BRANT TREADWAY
Hello, Doug here! I decided to start making candles because I loved lighting two different candles in the same room and creating unique scents with the two burning at the same time. This curiosity led me into making candles (among other items) which I shared them with my salon guests and it took off from there. I love that my customers shared their love for something I took time to make.
A business was born when I noticed that my customers were repeating their business, re-stocking their favorite scents and checking in for new seasonal scents.
Brant, my husband & I are newlyweds and would like to start a family. The profits from each candle, wax melt, room spray, and car diffuser that we lovingly create and sell goes straight in to our family fund. We are both full time hairdressers which pay the bills and offer the ability to adventure, but ELEVEN // Three will afford us an opportunity to start a family.
Fallon is my personal favorite scent. After creating the blend, I struggled to name it until I discovered that Fallon is the Irish term for 'leader' - this candle has become a best-seller, a leader.
My second favorite scent is Mine - it is one of the first blends I made and I told myself that if these candles don’t sell, this will just be my candle. As the thought crossed my mind, 'The Boy Is Mine' by Brandy and Monica was playing on the radio and I decided to name it Mine.
All of our products are created by hand in small batches and our scents are all custom blended. We custom design our own labels and take a lot of pride in our finished product.
Both of our waxes in our candles and wax melts are 100% soy wax with no preservatives, additives, or dyes which burns cleaner and lasts longer.
Our candles, wax melts, room sprays, and car diffusers all use clean scent fragrance which means that they are free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in fragrance.
The longevity of our candles depend on the user (you!) If you’re a power burner (you light the candle and keep it going all day), it won't last as long as If you light your candle for a few hours at a time. Soy wax burns/melts slower than other waxes - no matter the type of user you are, our products offer longevity. For instance, 1 cube from our wax melts last 56 hours.
