We’re not your average candle company.

Happy Thoughts Candle Co is not your ordinary Candle company. We are also a social movement. The founder and owner is a suicide survivor and wants to show others they are not alone. He is working hard to change the mental health stigma. That’s why he donates 20% of the proceeds to suicide prevention and mental health awareness. He wants to learn other people’s story. He makes scented soy wax candles in recycled tin cans. The sauce from the cans are also donated to homeless ministries. On each label, we put a positive saying to help encourage and also to start a conversation. We look forward to lighting up the world together one candle at a time.

Quality Ingredients Matter.

We believe in quality candles. Here at Happy Thoughts Candle Co. we believe that everybody should have the opportunity to experience a high quality candle. However, we believe that, these candles should be affordable enough for everyone. We believe in using only the finest fragrance & essential oils in order to achieve a nice aroma, that is guaranteed to brighten your day.

We have candles that are made for everybody in general, but we do have candles for those who have anxiety, stress, and depression. Our candles are also there as a pep or a pick me up, and we even have scents that could bring back memories from your childhood.

“Wonderful! I heard about Happy Thoughts on NPR and thought it was just a great idea and for a cause that's near to my heart. I ordered a few for Christmas gifts and one was missing from the package. It wasn't a big deal, still plenty of time before Christmas, but I emailed them to let them know. They responded immediately saying that they were sorry. When I sent the email, it happened to have my business address at the bottom, and the next day the missing candle was hand delivered to my work. Now THAT is some customer service! It wasn't necessary, but it was definitely appreciated!! The candles are also really nice and will make great gifts!”

“These candles are such an amazing gift.

I find that when friends need support or I just want to splurge on myself this is what I turn to. The candle selection is amazing, the clean scents are not over powering and the sense of peace is welcomed.

Josh’s story is the story of so many young people and anything I can do to help support this cause, this movement and this beautiful young man I welcome.”

“This past Saturday, my daughter and I finally made it out to purchase some candles. Our bonus was to meet Josh! You are a true inspiration to all that crosses your path! You’re a kindred spirit! Thank you for everything you do, and for your zest for life. We hope to attend one of your upcoming walks. I purchased 4 candles, 3 for gifts, one for me. They are amazing, as you are, I’ll definitely be purchasing more. Have a blessed day!”
