Candles Made By a Fellow Belle!

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Saint Mary's chapter.

Moving to Opus or Edge and want your apartment to smell fresh? Want to treat your BFF with a birthday present? Did your forget Mother’s Day? 

ND Alum (& my sister) Caitlin O’Loughlin has jump started her very own candle-making business, CO Candle Company. Straight out of Philadelphia, these candles are handmade and the perfect gift for your mom, grandma, or any mother figure in your life. “My candles are made with 100% soy wax, wood wicks, and different types of scented oil. They’re poured into stemless wine glasses,” Caitlin explains. So when the candle is all burned, you have yourself a super cute wine glass!

A complete list of scents can be found on the official CO Candle Co. Etsy page at etsy.com/shop/cocandleco. It features all scents offered, including the most popular: Chardonnay, Birthday Cake, and Rustic Lodge. Also, perfect for a gift from your favorite Belle, CO Candle Co. offers a special St. Mary’s scent, “The Avenue Will Lead You Home”!

CO Candle Co. also provides an option for custom orders! Caitlin discloses, “The labels and the scents are fully customizable. To request a custom label or a unique label/scent combination, you can message me on Etsy or include your customization notes in the ‘Message to Seller’ box when you check-out on Etsy.”

Also perfect for any broke college student, the cost is $16 for a 12oz candle, and $12 for a 9oz candle.

Does it get any better?

Act now! All candles are made to order, but can usually be shipped in 1-3 days of the order being placed. 

Check her out on the ‘gram @cocandleco for updates on new scents and offers!
