As we gear up for another amazing Artists & Fleas weekend, we want to make sure you aren't without a guiding light (pun intended) as we venture further and further into the holiday season. For your consideration, we present: Rx Candles, a family company run by Jennifer & Jocelyn Chun.
Jocelyn started making candles for gifts in 2013, and once they became a hit, she decided to continue as a hobby while still working a full-time office job—But the story doesn't stop there. Jocelyn named her company Rx Candles after delving into research on the background of the often pharmacy-associated Rx— Rx is derived from the Latin word “recipe,” meaning “take.” Jocelyn decided she would name the brand Rx, in the hopes that her candles give people a "cure for cubicle fever". Shortly after, Rx Candles ran a successful Kickstarter campaign which enabled Jocelyn to go full time with the company and tap in her sister, Jennifer, as her right hand woman.
The business now includes the whole family and is based out of Nothern California, but you can find Jennifer and Jocelyn in person this Saturday helping our customers pick the right candle for them at Artists & Fleas on Abbot Kinney—We know you'll need something bright to light up the dark Daylight Savings Time evenings!
