About Us


The Melting Jar was established in 2022, by Kayla. It is a female owned, operated and made in the USA brand offering natural candles that help promote mental health. The Melting Jar is strongly focused on natural, clean, and sustainable handmade products. All of our products are carefully hand-poured in Alpine, Ca in small batches using only quality ingredients.


We value the impact of clean living, so we focus on sourcing clean and simple ingredients in each handcrafted product. Our collections are designed as a guide to self-love and self-care.

 ‘I truly believe that when we take care of ourselves, we can offer so much more.’

My vision is to bring to life a brand of candles that can take you to a place of peace and invoke the feeling of relaxation. Something you can sit next to on a hard day and take in the scent that brings you back to reality, that everything’s going to be ok.


Kayla spent the last 15 years in corporate America, with specific focus on small business. She decided to take the leap to become an entrepreneur and create products that promote mental health and self-healing. It is important to her to use only the most natural and clean products and fragrance oils as possible.
