Craft + Foster | Smells like Good Times

Craft + Foster is a hand-poured premium soy candle company. Experience the clean and fragrant burn of a Craft + Foster candle. Veteran-founded and family-owned since 2015.

In the spring of 2015, wife, mother of four, and military veteran, Melissa Burgess received a DIY candle-kit for her birthday and quickly fell in love with the candle making process. She found that it gave her a creative and therapeutic outlet while juggling the demands of motherhood and processing an on-going journey with PTSD. After signing up for a handful of local maker's markets, Melissa's unique blends, strong fragrant throws, and muted packaging quickly gained the attention of San Diego consumers and retailers alike. This early success eventually led to her husband, Chad Burgess, jumping ship from corporate America and joining her in this "accidental candle company" full-time.

In just a few short years, Craft + Foster has grown from local candle pop-up to a nationally recognized brand that is highly-regarded, eco-friendly, zero-waste / low waste, and sustainable.
