bridge nine candle co.
Bridge Nine Candle Co. was born in the North Portland community of Portland, OR. The iconic St Johns Bridge, the ninth major bridge on the Willamette river, was the inspiration for our simple and distinctive branding.
Since the beginning, our vision has been to create candles based on simplicity and sustainability for your everyday lifestyle. Each candle is hand poured using all natural soy wax, 100% cotton wicks and fragrance oils. Our candle components are purposeful. We use soy wax, a vegetable wax made from the oil of soybeans, because it is a renewable resource grown on American soil. It is also clean-burning and slow-burning. We use cotton wicks that will require trimming to ensure that our candles burn clean. Our fragrance oils are American made, some containing essential oils, to create our quality scented candles. All of our fragrance is formaldehyde & phthalate free. Our candles, poured in heavy duty Libbey glass, canning jar glass, or tin, provide a decorative accent piece, blending well with home or office décor. In addition, you can recycle all your containers after you finish burning your candle.
Bridge Nine is run by it's founder, Chelsea Arvesen. Chelsea has lived in the Portland, OR area for 10 years. Besides making candles, she loves to take her dog (Tessa!) for walks, travel with her family, read and paint.
