About Me

Welcome to Gourmet Candle!!! I'm Emerald Hill and I'm the proud creator and owner of Gourmet Candle!

Gourmet Candle is an online candle store specializing in a variety of unique handmade scented (soy) candles that look and smell similar to popular desserts and various other yummy goodies! I reside in The City of Brotherly Love, formally know as, Philadelphia, PA! I'm a full time college Senior majoring in Small Business Management and Entrepreneurship and also a Mompreneur!!! (Mompreneur = Mom + Entrepreneur) I'm the proud mommy of two little ones (a 10 year old daughter and a 5 year old son) who are incredibly supportive of my business! My business, Gourmet Candle is my full time job. I not only sell my handmade candles on Etsy but also on my website (www.GourmetCandle.org), local events and in several different stores throughout the United States. I have always been VERY creative, motivated and passionate about everything that I set out to accomplish! Running my candle business and creating candles are my passion because it allows me to share my wonderful creations with other candle lovers and gift givers!


One thing that excited me about candle making and transforming it into a business is that there is no limit to my creativity! Prior to beginning my journey, I've completed a ton of research on the items I'll need, start up cost, created a business plan and researched every single detail in between. I brainstormed business names such as, "Decadent Candles", "Dessert Candles" and even "Fat Bastard Candles" (I was looking for something different) until I stumble onto "Gourmet Candle". I completed a survey amongst my family to see which one they liked the best and they unanimously chose, "Gourmet Candle". From there, I saved up money to buy my materials, created a binder with ideas, tools, tips, cost, a business timeline, a marketing plan and every other detail! I purchased my materials and work EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. on my candles. I dedicate anywhere from five to ten hours either actively making candles or promoting my business and generating new ideas for growth. Everything that I create is measured, scented, dyed, hand poured, boxed and designed all by me. I find it incredibly rewarding to do something that makes me genuinely happy!!!


My customers and family keep me motivated! I receive so much great energy and encouragement from my customers-especially the ones that have the opportunity to meet me at local events! Its been a blessing to have such a supporting team in my life from my fiancée right down to our two little ones! I genuinely hope that you enjoy my candles as much as I enjoy creating them for you!

I appreciate your support!
