True North Candle Forge

The Scent of Your Adventure

At True North Candle Forge, we challenge you to live life adventurously. Our goal is to promote a healthy lifestyle through adventure, exploration, and the enjoyment of our wonderful outdoor world.

True North Candle Forge was founded on the principle ‘So Others May Live’. We are extremely aware that many candles are produced with toxic, petroleum, and synthetic-based wax and materials. True North Candle Forge will NEVER use these harmful products. Our candles will only be made utilizing organically sourced Coconut Wax, which is environmentally sustainable and healthful to humans and pets alike. We challenge you to go out and have an adventure today, then burn a candle forged in the True North.

True North Candle Forge is a family-owned, disabled veteran-operated, small business that hand pours small-batch candles on demand. This may result in longer shipping times, slight variations of color, scent throw, and wax volume. That said, we will make every effort to minimize these issues and get your candle to you as soon as possible.

From all of us at True North Candle Forge, I would like to thank you for taking the time to learn about us. We hope you have a great adventure today!

Owner Profile

John Jones

I started True North Candle Forge as a way to bring healthy candles to those people who love candles but suffer from lung and allergy issues. I found the candle-making process to be calming as well. I enlisted in the United States Navy at 17 and was a Fleet Marine Force (FMF) Hospital Corpsman.  I spent just under 7 years on active military service, with a deployment to Somalia, before being medically discharged for developing a lung condition. Even with this lung issue, I have been actively employed in various aspects of the first responder field from contract security work with the United States Air Force and private entities to multiple positions with uniformed law enforcement. I am now a Senior Federal Law Enforcement Officer conducting Anti-terrorism and Civil Aviation Protection. I hold a Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal Justice Administration, and a Master of Science degree in Security Management. Both degrees are from Bellevue University in Nebraska (and all thanks to the GI Bill). I am a certified Law Enforcement Officer in the State of Nebraska as well as a credentialed Federal Law Enforcement Officer.
