hi, I'm Chanda
I am the founder of Vidas (vee-dus) Wax Works.
Vidas is a family run business. I mean it, everyone plays a part: My husband Pierce is a full time Art Director by day and part time graphic designer for us. My mom Gail tried to retire and left her job as a flight attendant but then I recruited her to help pour candles. My toddler is the best handler of the packing peanuts, so he'll occasionally help pack orders. My daughter is... well, she's just cute, but one day I'm sure she'll have her hand in the business as well.
We make all of our products out of our home in West Jordan, Utah.
it started in 2018
I began experimenting with candle making in 2018. After a few failed attempts with candle kits from the craft store, my journey began.
While experimenting, I learned the good, the bad, and the ugly about many different candle waxes and the ins and outs of fragrances.
After a lot of research, I was finally ready to start blending. I started with 100% soy wax but wasn't getting the results I wanted, so I started blending soy with beeswax.
After an entire year of experimenting to find the right blend, I found the perfect recipe and created my LLC. I have learned so much throughout the experimentation and research phases of candle making.
I am proud to say that my entire line of candles and wax melts are non-toxic and created with an all-natural wax blend and phthalate free fragrance oils.
All of the scents I offer are specific to my line of candles, each scent uniquely crafted by yours truly.
