Our Story

Meet Cayla Hogan, the visionary founder of La Lueur, a candle brand steeped in both artisanal quality and ethical responsibility. Born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, Cayla's hometown has deeply influenced the ethos of her business, shaping the way she crafts her products and has built her brand. La Lueur took its first steps in 2016, originating in the cozy setting of Cayla's parents' kitchen in Santa Cruz. With just soy wax and a household stove, she set out on a mission that has since evolved her brand into a paragon of both quality and mindful living.

La Lueur is committed to doing more than merely illuminating rooms. It aims to elevate sensory experiences through captivating aromas and visual beauty, all while fostering a sense of well-being. The brand has come a long way in product development and ingredient formulation but the journey towards perfection continues, with constant innovation as a cornerstone for delivering the finest, worry-free products.

Fast-forward to today, and you'll find the heartbeat of La Lueur in a specialized warehouse located in Lincoln, NE. This is where the magic happens, a nexus of craftsmanship and ethical responsibility. Each candle is hand-poured with a carefully selected, a toxin-free coconut wax blend and premium fragrance oils. 

From fragrance oils that are free of harmful chemicals to 100% cotton wicks made in the USA, every component of a La Lueur candle manifests Cayla's unwavering standards for quality and ethical manufacturing. These carefully curated choices create a serene atmosphere without compromising the health and wellness of customers.

What began as a humble venture in her family kitchen in Santa Cruz has matured into a flourishing enterprise. Yet, the essence of La Lueur remains unaltered, staying true to Cayla's original vision and the community values she absorbed growing up in Santa Cruz. As La Lueur's story unfolds, Cayla serves as a living testament to entrepreneurial determination, artistic craftsmanship, and ethical business practices, offering candles that not just illuminate, but enrich lives and provide tranquil moments.

Our wicks are composed of 100% natural, textile-grade cotton, sourced within the United States. Engineered for clean combustion, these wicks also reduce the potential for mushrooming caused by carbon accumulation.

Wax

We craft our candles using a proprietary coconut wax blend, mixed in our Lincoln, Nebraska warehouse facility. Our non-toxic wax is not only clean-burning and slow-burning, but it's also renewable, biodegradable, and vegan-friendly.

Production

Since our humble start in 2016, when we were crafting candles on Cayla's parents' kitchen counter, we've come a long way. We've expanded to a spacious warehouse in Lincoln, Nebraska, which serves as the hub for all our operations—from candle-making and inventory management to order fulfillment. Every step of the production process takes place under this one roof, allowing us to meticulously monitor each candle batch to ensure the utmost quality.

Fulfilment

Our close-knit fulfillment process is conducted on an order-by-order basis, with each product being individually pulled from the shelves. Generally, it takes us 1-3 days to complete an order, although this timeframe may vary due to high demand or limited staffing. The owner, along with a dedicated small team, personally oversees the fulfillment of each order, ensuring that every package is securely packed and dispatched promptly. We also maintain a strong working relationship with our local USPS representative to guarantee timely shipping and scanning of each order. If you require assistance with an order, feel free to reach out to us at support@lalueurcandles.com.
