about wax cabin

Founded in 2016, Wax Cabin Candle Co. seeks to light up the room – your room – with your favorite scents. Scents that make you feel lovely, cozy,…and even boozy!  (Seriously, sometimes just the thought of your favorite cocktail can make your day better, right? Imagine conjuring up the aroma at anytime!)

Each soy candle is hand-poured with care in rural New Jersey (Yep, that’s a thing!) studio. Originally based out of a log cabin in Mendham, Wax Cabin Candle Co. is now located in Chester – an equally bucolic town in the NJ.

about jennifer gunn

Wax Cabin Candle Co. was founded by Jennifer Gunn, a graphic designer and consummate creative. Looking for the potential for beauty in every moment, Jennifer seeks to leave her mark on the world by infusing her art – in whatever format that may be…branding, designing, photography, candle pouring, etc. – wherever and whenever possible. 

Jennifer received a Master’s degree from Savannah College of Art and Design where she fed her interest and honed her skills in design and production.  A renowned graphic designer, she has spent decades working in corporate and educational institutions – bringing their missions to life on the web and in print.


Hard-working, definitely.  But your girl also knows how to enjoy life.  Champagne brunches with girlfriends. Yoga, with or without goats. And, of course, time spent with her hot husband and two daughters.

Read more about Jennifer in the interview she did with NJ MOM and Oh Joy!

"Have confidence that you can be successful if you’re ready to push something beyond a hobby. Have confidence if you need to ask for capital. Have confidence if you need to ask your partner to help out more at home so you can succeed, and have confidence that even if you have a failure or bad feedback, eventually, it will be right. Keep going."

-Jennifer Gunn, Creator of Wax Cabin Candle.
