A public library in a small Midwest town is a magical place. In response to an invitation to participate in their Children's Business fair, my 11 year old daughter Gwyn dreamed up candle making. We do love candles and I had recently bought an expensive one. I guess she recognized the joy on my face each time I lit it. As a stay at home mom of 3 children the candle was a splurge, but it brought me joy. Being the creative and resourceful child she is, she resolutely determined to make candles to sell at the fair. The problem was neither of us knew anything about candle making. After much research, several failed attempts, and much experimentation, we settled on a product we were proud of. That is how GB & Co. was born. G and B are her initials, and I guess I make up the Co part. The not so silent partner that has fallen in love with all things candle and working with my hands.
It is a beautiful thing to work closely with your offspring. The blessing is watching her combine her love of nature and creating things. Gwyn loves being outside, walking the river for fossils, being a chef to the chickens, ice fishing, hunting, and playing softball. She is usually with her sidekick, a black dog named Charlie or her two little brothers. She also loves creating artwork in all mediums; clay, paper, canvas, & cooking.
She is determined in what she does, only choosing scents and blends that she likes. We end up with many good candles where the scent just didn't quite meet her standards. So what we do offer to you is an exceptional all natural candle made with care and love.
We love offering you an affordable product that comes straight from the bounty of the earth and the blessings of our Heavenly Father. Our hope is that you will try a candle. Allow the warmth and ambiance it gives to fill your room. As you watch the flicker of the flame we hope you will be reminded that Jesus is the light of the world. We pray that as the scent fills the room your home will be transformed into a place of hospitality where you can be the light for someone else.
