A Little Bit About
Rustic Rays Candle Co.

Rachel Bassett | Owner/Maker

Our Story

Hi there! My name is Rachel and I am the owner of Rustic Rays Candle Co. I am the creator of all of the products you know and love!

I have always loved creating and making items in my spare time for myself, family, and friends, but I could never narrow down one item that I wanted to focus on. I also wanted a name and logo that I could sell my items under, so I came up with the name "Rustic Rays." "Rustic" because that is the theme and feel of the items that I was creating and "Rays" because my brother calls me Ray and adding the "s" makes everything you purchase from me seem like you just found a small ray (or rays) of sunshine!

​ A few years after creating my brand name, the idea of making soy candles came to mind. Man oh man, did I have a fire lit after that. I researched hours every night so that way I knew what materials I needed to begin this venture and, also, so that way I could get an idea of what types of soy products to offer you all! I kept this whole idea under wraps until the products were almost completely finished and then I launched them via social media and word of mouth. Business took off from the beginning and is still going strong! That is when I decided to add "Candle Co." behind my original "Rustic Rays" name and logo.

I love creating and pouring soy candles & melts, but the best part is that I also love having a great support system behind me for this newest venture. I can't wait to continue developing and offering more new and different products for you. Every time I complete a sale or a bulk order, I get super excited about it. I am sure that's a feeling that will never go away!

​ If you have any questions, comments, ideas, and/or concerns, please feel free to reach out! I love hearing from you.

​ Happy shopping!
