About Us

My Story

I am Cynthia “Cyn” Gavin, the Owner, Founder and Maker of Home Inn Candle Co. Home Inn Candle Company is a Small, Black Woman Owned Home Fragrance Brand.

Surprisingly enough, I started my candle business on a whim after purchasing a candle making kit to make Christmas Gifts for Family and Friends.

It was the year of COVID (December 2020) when everything seemed so chaotic and it was nearly impossible to get into the store to buy gifts for anyone for the holidays. So I decided to buy a candle making kit to make the candles I had already planned to gift everyone.
Those candles turned out so good and I got such great feedback that I turned it into a business. Now, here we are years later still going strong with much more products than just candles!

As someone who has always been passionate about home fragrance, it is a dream come true to share my love with others through my small candle business. I started this business because I believe that elevating your home fragrance can help make a house feel like a home - fresh, clean, and cozy.

For me, home fragrance is not just about making a room smell nice, it's about creating an experience that makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. That's why I carefully select the highest quality ingredients and fragrances that are inspired by home and evoke feelings of comfort, warmth and happiness - capturing the essence of what HOME truly means.

At Home Inn Candle Company, all of our Home Fragrance Products are Handmade with Love. Our candles and wax melts are made with a custom blend of natural plant-based soy waxes with NO PARAFFIN. Soy wax burns clean and slow for a long lasting candle. Our candles are also made with lead-free cotton wicks. Our room and linen sprays are made with a paraben free and Formaldehyde free preservative.

As part of our commitment to corporate social responsibility, we use materials that are sustainable and eco-friendly. An example is our Soy Wax. Soy is a plant based wax that is biodegradable, a renewable resource and carbon neutral. Another example is our room and linen spray bottles, They are made with PET Plastic which is 100% recyclable (the most widely recycled plastic).

Our Mission- Elevating Your Home Fragrance Experience to Help Make Your House feel Like a Home
