About us

Started in April of 2016, our business sprouted from our love of candles. Our founder Larry Moore started with a single candle making kit and developed Potomac Candle into the thriving business it is today. Everything we have built is thanks to our wonderful customers, and our excellent retail partners! 

Our daily activities include melting lots of wax, mixing lots of scents, pouring lots of candles, and communicating with lots of our customers! 

We are constantly creating new scents, and researching new products to offer our customers. This process begins with recommendations from customers, new and emerging trends suggestions from our retail partners. If there is anything you would like to see from us in the future please feel free to send us a message through the site and we will get back to you as soon as possible!
