About Us

The Growing Candle

Welcome to Hyggelight Candles! We are Chris & Cyndi Hileman. Hygge (hoo-ga), is the concept of creating an atmosphere of coziness for yourself, spending quality time with people who make you feel loved, slowing down, and getting out in nature  … basically, finding the ‘special’ in everyday life. We’re determined to give you the very best candle, with a focus on hyggeligt (hygge-like) quality, style, and functionality.

As a small family business in Toledo, OH, Hyggelight Candles is passionate about what we can do to help out our planet. We are the first candle company with this unique zero-waste product and are thrilled to be leading the reusable, “growing candle” industry. Not only are our products staying out of the landfill, our entire manufacturing process sends less than one household garbage bag of waste to the landfill every month (we are close to eliminating manufacturing waste entirely).

We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we enjoy making them for you. If you have any questions or comments, please don't hesitate to contact us.
