Crooked River Candle is a company inspired by the beauty and comfort of nature, and we strive to convey that feeling in every product we make. Jennifer Koran, the founder of our company, has a deep love for The Cuyahoga River and its nearby National Parks systems, which is why she chose to name the business after this beautiful landmark. The company is committed to creating handmade, eco-friendly candles and soaps that allow its customers to set the mood and beautify the space inside of their homes and feel good about what they're buying.

"The idea of candle making came about while I was creating gift baskets for my previous business, Eaton Basket Company, and struggled to find affordable, high-quality, unique candles to include in my baskets. After a lot of passion and creativity, I discovered my true love and calling in candle and soap making." -Jennifer


Using quality ingredients and repurposable vessels, we strive to make our products as eco-friendly as possible. Our candles add ambiance to any occasion, and our unique designs, vessels, and fragrances make them stand out from the crowd.

Crooked River Candle's mission is to offer the best in candles and products. From curating unique Artisan crafted vessels that become reusable keepsakes, to hand selecting unique fragrance and essential oils free from phthalates, to hand stirring our soy wax blend in small batches.  We are a brand inspired by nature and the senses, with humans and the environment in mind.


We also work with various artisans to incorporate handcrafted elements and more sustainable materials into our products. Check out our selection today!

Repurpose or Refill?

Our vessels are often repurposed as planters, drinking vessels, catch-alls, pen or make-up brush holders, and home decor. We also offer refills at our Twinsburg store. Simply drop off a clean vessel during store hours, choose a new scent, and wait for a pick-up text.
