I'm Ethan Caylor, and I founded E. D. Caylor to share light with others.
Before I founded this candle company in 2018, I had nearly constantly
struggled with my mental health and with finding a purpose. I was
stressed, anxious, depressed, and angry. Up to that point, all I knew
for sure about myself was that I cared about other people and that I
enjoyed visiting candle stores and smelling what they had to offer. It
wasn't until 2018 that it clicked: I had never been upset in a candle
I enjoy being around candles. I enjoy their ambiance. I enjoy their
aesthetic. Smelling good candles for the first time gives me a split
second where everything is all right. I chase that feeling of
recognizing a previously forgotten scent from childhood and of good
memories flooding through. There's no feeling in the world quite like
it, and I need to share it.
It was then that I dreamt up the E. D. Caylor candle company to
spread these happy feelings to others. I had created my own purpose. I
decided that I would create one-of-a-kind candles that fill the room
with fragrance when lit. Every day, I work to refine my fragrances to
get closer to my vision of a perfect candle, and excellence results from
this effort. I create each and every E. D. Caylor candle with the hope
that you'll love it as much as I do.
While I still struggle with my mental health from time to time, I no
longer struggle with what I want to do with my life. It's simple:
I want to light up faces across the world, one candle at a time.
Please join me in spreading light.
