Elder & Co.

Elder & Co. is a family owned company with roots in the mountains and on the coast of the Carolinas. We are outdoors people that hike, travel, and explore. The spirit of nature is our guide.

Our hand-poured, 100% soy wax candles are made with all natural fragrance oils and cotton wicks. They are inspired by a deep love and reverence for the great outdoors. At Elder & Co., we want to bring the energy and wisdom of our greatest lands into your home with scent and symbolism. A portion of our proceeds benefits the Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
