About Us

Welcome to Candles on Tap. We are San Diego’s first custom candle bar!

 

Uniquely Crafted. Hand Poured. Curated with Love. We offer 90+ unique, premium fragrance oils to choose from, where you select and design your own custom scent to be blended into candles or flameless options. In addition to our soy wax candles, we offer other create-your-own options, such as reed diffusers. Our Scent Stylist will guide you through the entire hand-pouring process at our Scent Bar! 

We are dedicated to crafting quality products that are clean for your home and the environment. Our candles are made from natural soy wax and skin safe, premium fragrance oils. Each product is paraben-free, vegan, and toxic-free. Our candles contain lead-free cotton wicks to ensure a cleaner and longer burn. 

 

Chantel & Marcus founded Candles on Tap in 2019, with a mission to introduce a unique scent-making experience to the San Diego community. They hope to ignite nostalgia through scent, inspire creativity, and create lasting new memories, one custom blend at a time.

 

Chantel started with a humble beginning making candles in her kitchen for friends and family, before turning it into a flourishing ecommerce candle business. She knew she could take an innovative approach in the candle industry, in which mainstream candle companies offer generic, mass-produced products without considerations for health or environment. We believe every unique ambient scent tells its own story, and we are excited to share the entire candle creation process with YOU. 

 

We love hosting many types of events, including collaborative workshops, corporate outings, team-building, birthday parties (adults and kids), ladies’ nights, date nights, networking events, bachelorette parties, Mother's Day, private events, and any other reason to get together to create something special. 

 

In addition to our in-store experience, we also offer an option to order online, as well as wholesale, where you can create a custom scented product for your business, event, or celebration.
