about us

our story

Aster + Indigo Candle Co. was founded in 2021 by mother-daughter team Lauren Wyant + Becky Janssen. We've been candle lovers for as long as we can remember and wanted to craft a product that allowed us a creative outlet, a candle that is clean burning and aesthetically pleasing. After months of researching, testing and testing some more we were able to launch Aster + Indigo Candle Co. and immediately had an outpouring of support from our local communities. We started this business in Colfax, Illinois and plan to keep it that way! Our dream is to create products and build a business that our community is proud of and will continue to support for years to come. We promise to always keep community support + small town pride at the forefront of our business and we strive to call Colfax our home forever!


about our products

All of our candles are made with 100% soy wax that comes from USA grown soy beans. We have loved using soy wax in our products because not only is it natural, plant based and renewable, it also helps support our US farmers with every purchase. Here's a list of reasons why we love soy!

  • cleaner burn compared to paraffin (petroleum based) candles
  • renewable + biodegradable - will clean up with soap and water
  • grown and processed in the USA + supports US farmers

All of our fragrances are free of phthalates + harsh chemicals and we use lead/zinc free cotton wicks.

We are so proud of the products that we have crafted and hope that you enjoy them us much as we have enjoyed creating them!
