Curiously Creative Candles was founded by Chrissy Lehat in 1999. Beginning as a basement operation it set the stage to open a small candle factory open to the public.
The grand opening was flooded with special orders, wholesale inquiries and in two short years we launched our second candle factory in Bohemia. The Bohemia facility ran successfully for it's lease term of five years. The Deer Park location remains as our original and only location.
As of August 2016, we are no longer open to public. We are strictly a wholesale manufacturer.
Our manufacturing capabilities are different because we think differently. We are a contract manufacturer; this means we produce private label candles and soaps for other businesses rather than promote our own line. We offer consumers choices for candles they hadn't realized existed. We utilize state of the art manufacturing machinery and are extremely educated in true manufacturing. We pride ourselves on the top quality materials used in our process.
We produce lines of refined paraffin candles, palm wax candles, soy candles, beeswax candles, cut 'n carve candles, custom blended wax candles, and overdipped taper candles. We also hand make scented soaps, body butters, and body oils.
Our 4,000 sq. ft. facility consists of two retail shopping showrooms, one area with a 300 lb. dip & carve wax unit for demonstration, one area for children's crafting, a customer service section, a manufacturing room with six 120 lb. wax units, two 80 lb. soap units, one 60 lb. top off tank and one loading dock. Our parking lot accomodates 30 cars.
