About Us

Break of Dawn Candle Company was founded by Carissa Richardson in the small North Carolina town of Hollister. This town is home to the oldest and largest American Indian Powwow in North Carolina hosted by the Haliwa-Saponi Tribe which the owner is a proud member of. She is a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother with a true love for candles. Her love will pour into your home. 

Our Products:

Each of our candles is hand poured with 100% all-natural soy wax. Soy wax is made from soybeans, a natural, renewable source grown in many regions by local farmers. Soy wax burns more slowly and evenly than paraffin so you will notice that your candles last much longer. The reason behind their longevity is the slower burning time and cooler burning temperature of the soybean-based wax. Soy candles also burn cleaner since they produce much less smoke than candles made from paraffin. This keeps the air in your home safer for everyone, especially young children and the elderly. While you may pay more for a soy candle initially the longer-lasting burn means you won't have to buy new candles as often. 

Our Fragrance:

We purchase only premium fragrance and essential oils from companies right here in the USA. Fragrance strength is the key to our products. We promise that you will smell a vigorous pleasant aroma when burning our candles. You will not be disappointed.
