Our Story

Here at Cleverly Candle Co. our mission is simple: to create candles that are minimal and chic, modern yet rustic with scents that are inspired by nature and travel and wonderful memories. Our candles are made with all natural 100% soy wax made from soy grown by American Farmers. We use Wooden Wicks that are from FSC certified mills and manufactured here in the USA. Our fragrances are phthalate and paraben free. Our hand-poured concrete vessels and trays are sealed with a nontoxic eco-friendly sealer. We are proud that all of our materials are sourced from and made in the USA! Our candles and vessels are made in small batches and produced in a tiny studio in our home in West Sacramento, CA.

Meet the Maker

Hello! I'm Mallory DeMars, I live in West Sacramento with my husband and our two kids and four dogs. I am a stay-at-home mom and founded Cleverly Candle Co. in 2021. I grew up in the Salinas Valley and received a full-ride scholarship to play volleyball at Sacramento State where I received my degree in Family and Consumer Sciences - Family Studies. I went on to work for nonprofits in Sacramento and the Bay Area serving at-risk youth. In early 2021, I wanted a new hobby and after looking at a wooden wick candle I received as a gift for Christmas I decided I wanted to learn how to make my own. After a lot of research I bought supplies and made my first candle and fell in love! I made a few for my family and friends, who then encouraged me to sell them. Thus Cleverly Candle Co. was born! I spend most of my time chasing my kids and dogs around, enjoying our backyard parties, a nice glass of wine, and making candles for all of you!
