Life Balance is Essential. JSquared Candle Co. is committed to helping you find life balance through unique, handcrafted essential oil soy candles.

JSquared Candle Co.™ was founded in 2016 by Jeff and Jeff in Washington, DC. One an immigrant from the Philippines, the other a service-disabled US Air Force veteran, we are a family company that desires to bring the history of each of our families together in a way that helps promote life balance.

It is no secret that life is an incredible journey of ups and downs, and our lives have been no different.  16 years ago, on the other side of the world, Jeff would make candles in the kitchen with his family. Immigrating to the United States, putting himself through both a bachelor’s and master’s program, Jeff was still looking for a way to impact the world. The other Jeff spent more than 15 years in uniform with the US Air Force. Adopting the essential oils his family was using, Jeff was able to help manage the chaos of daily life.
