Jameel D. Nolan has been in the candle making industry for 20 years. She has worked with the various types of waxes currently being sold on the market today such as paraffin, gel, beeswax, palm and soy waxes. In 2002, after giving birth to her first child, Jameel began researching for natural alternatives to burning candles due to the growing concerns of black soot and the release of carcinogens in the air when using paraffin or gel-based candles. After months of research, Jameel decided to try her hands at making soy candles long before it was popular or even known by consumers. Many years and dollars were spent perfecting her craft in producing the BEST handmade soy candle on the market.
Today, Jameel continues to spend time making soy candles for both retail, wholesale and largely for private label markets under her company Harbor Mill Candles, LLC and teaching others how to start a candle business. She prides herself on striving hard to provide her customers with top quality candles at competitive pricing.
