Little Glowing Lanterns -The Story of the Granite Firefly Candle Company

Hello friends,

I'd like to take this opportunity to give you a little background on how Granite Firefly Candle Company got started. When the pandemic began and we found ourselves home more than ever, candles became a staple, especially during the long winter nights. The soft glow brought comfort and a sense of peace in otherwise unpredictable times. In January 2021, Donnie sustained a traumatic brain injury. In the early weeks and months of recovery, he was often unable to tolerate bright light of any kind, either natural or artificial. The gentle, flickering glow of candlelight was soothing and relaxing, and easy for him to rest beside.

As his condition improved (and continues to today) I knew I needed to invest my time and efforts into creating a home-based business that would allow me to be at home with Donnie most of the time. Because of the integral role that candles played in Donnie’s recovery, it seemed like a natural choice. Taking cues from my best friend in Denver, who had made pillar candles many years ago, I began to experiment. After extensive research and development, the Granite Firefly was born. The candles are made in small batches and are hand-poured in Concord, New Hampshire.

Thank you for supporting this New Hampshire small business!
