Five Pines Candle Co. is a well-renowned local and online store
that has continues to feature a variety of
high-quality and affordable products since day one.
After 3 decades of being a hairstylist, heather
stepped away from behind the chair
to pursue new smells and further her creativity.
Her passion for excellence has driven her from the beginning, and continues to drive FPCC into the future.
The team ( heather, her Australian Shepard and English short hair cat)
lives in northern tradition
and deep philosophy in provoking memories with
Familiar and uniquely scented candles, in reusable glass jars,
wood wicks and luxury coconut-apricot candle wax.
Heather draws our inspiration while actively living in the boundary waters; camping, hiking, canoeing, snowshoeing,
fishing and watching wildlife.
Heather was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri.
2017 brought her to Saint Paul, MN for a life change.
Always yearning to be more of an "outdoor girl",
yet never having an opportunity to live that lifestyle
until she became a Minnesota resident.
She was immediately drawn to all things outdoors
and found herself frequently seeking adventure "up north".
Soaking in the smells and sounds of being in nature were intoxicating.
She has always had a knack for interior design.
Drawn to the farmhouse, vintage and repurposed "style".
"I feel like the things that are old, have stories to tell.
When I pick up an item, I can almost feel the history. "
"Our candles are one and the same. Each fragrance holds a story.
I want our candles, not only to be a
statement piece in your home,
but bring forward a piece of the wilderness
and/or a memory of the past, present and new memories of the future."
"This is how I feel when I am hand blending the artisanal fragrances.
In Small batches, pouring each candle,
hand polishing and labeling them,
just for you."
