Five years ago, two best friends ditched the corporate world to establish their own candle company. From the time she was a little girl, Co-Founder Emily was intrigued with how scent could trigger memories and evoke emotions. In high school, her interest for candle making and running a small business ignited. With those two passions, she decided to pursue a career. She then convinced her best friend Chelsea Cash to move to Chattanooga, Tennessee. Together, they established The Rustic House in 2013. With over 20 years of shared candle making experience they have formulated the perfectly scented soy candles.


The Rustic House isn’t just about producing high-quality, soy-based, candles; we want to evoke emotions and memories through scent. The Rustic House is committed to making clean and honest candles. No matter who you are, we have candles that fit with your lifestyle.


Let us help you tell your story!




- Emily & Chelsea




 The Rustic House is inspired by our love for simple living and the rustic, yet modern, farmhouse-style.

As southern girls from Alabama, Emily and Chelsea's childhoods were filled with family reunions around rustic farmhouse tables, lake days and running through tall grass. Life was simple, and we were happy.  
The Rustic House unites the best of the traditional and the new, with a classic candle designed to complement virtually any decor. We've worked with the industry's finest perfumers to create exclusive and unique candle fragrances. Each candle is hand poured to ensure the finest quality. Our fragrant candles are the final touch to call your house a home.

Our mantra is #FollowYourScentses. We believe everyone should follow their dreams and live life to the fullest, no matter what the world tells you.
