Empowering Female-Owned Businesses
Diana started making candles by hand when she was a kid. She was working in the fashion & costume industry when she started making all-natural candles as gifts for colleagues & clients. The candles were so well received she decided to start an artisan candle company: Wax Apothecary in 2013. The company slowly grew as a side project while she worked full-time as a designer and creative director until 2019 when she transitioned into working full-time for Wax Apothecary and moved the company to the magical mountain town of Idyllwild California where it continues to thrive today. Wax Apothecary's natural handmade herbal and botanical candles are made with plant-based wax & do not contain any chemicals or additives. Every candle has a lead-free cotton wick and is perfumed with genuine, natural essential oil(s) and essential oil blends. Each candle is handmade using artisan methods to infuse the wax with the natural oils and blend in dried flora to create Wax Apothecary's authentic botanical & herbal fragrances.
A Natural Alternative
20+ years ago I was constantly in the local craft stores where a hot item was the “melt and pour” soaps. I was intrigued and started making glycerin soaps for friends. It was during this time that I started to learn about my own issues: that avoiding many preservatives and ingredients would make my skin look and feel so much better. I started to eat healthier and search for healthier options for my skin as well. Quickly I had too much for my friends and family to use, so I started selling it at craft shows. It still amazes me to this day that anyone bought those early bars and encouraged me to make more. We can now be found in retail stores all over the country! I hope you enjoy using the product as much as I love making them for you.

Many of them named for their own life experiences. A story lives at the heart of every single Walton Wood Farm product. We are committed to making high-quality products made with sustainable ingredients, helping to protect both our history and the environment for future generations. We craft all our products based on providing you with the benefits of natural essential oils, butter, waxes, and extracts.
