About Manitou Candle Co.

We make small-batch candles with a contemporary perspective — combining incredible scents with 100% American-made soy wax and lead-free cotton wicks for an eco-friendly, clean burn. Using premium fragrances infused with natural essential oils, our candles are 100% vegan, cruelty, petroleum and phthalate free. Each candle is hand-poured with love in Cincinnati, Ohio. Shop our candles directly on our website for shipping or local pickup. Or stop by our store to try them for yourself! 

Our mid-century shop is located in the Old Bank Building in the oldest neighborhood in Cincinnati, Ohio — Columbia Tusculum. We offer candle making classes where you can gather to share experiences while spending quality time making your own custom creations. Our amazing chandlers will teach you the ins and outs of candle making. They will guide you through fragrance exploration and lead you through each step of the candle pouring process.

Whether you’re reconnecting with friends, enjoying a night out, or searching for the perfect birthday gift, Manitou is the place for you! We thrive on community, offering a space where people can create, inspire and gather around the flame.

At our retail shop, you will find carefully curated goods that are inspired by many of our favorite candle scents, as well as Northern Michigan — the location of our namesake. Each product that we carry is mindfully selected. At Manitou, you know that your self-care, home decor, greeting card, and jewelry purchases make an impact by supporting the local artisans, women-owned businesses, BIPOC creators, LGBTQ+ makers, fair trade goods, and eco-friendly alternatives to your every day that we offer. We believe that there's power behind each purchase you make and we can all do our part to support one another.
