I'm Brian Nestico, co-owner and operator of Michigan Pure Soy Candles. For as long as I can remember, I have had a passion for candles. Back in the 80's and early 90's I was in the U.S. Air Force. I was able to travel extensively, visiting many beautiful and interesting countries. During this time, I was a regular buyer of candles. This did not change upon finishing my career with the U.S. Air Force in 1991. I continued to be a purveyor of candles when I returned to my hometown of Dearborn, Michigan. My wife Keli and I love to travel our beautiful state, often finding and purchasing different candles along the way. In one such trip, we were visiting one of our favorite places in Michigan, Tahquamenon Falls. While there, we came across and purchased a soy candle. I had never purchased a soy candle before, but once I did, I was completely hooked. It was clean burning, didn't emit any black smoke, and burned all the way down. What a difference compared to the traditional paraffin candles I had previously purchased. Additionally, I enjoyed how soft the wax was and how easy it was to clean the jar after the candle had finished burning!
In 2017, after pondering the idea of starting a business for quite a while, Keli and I decided to combine our love for the state of Michigan and soy candles into our own candle company. Out of that decision came Michigan Pure Soy Candles. Inspired by places and scents throughout our great state, our candles are sure to please Michigan and non-Michigan residents alike! Quality and cleanliness are our passion; every candle is hand-poured and made from naturally sourced soybeans. Making them a much healthier choice when burning them. We hope you enjoy our candles as much as we love making them.
To a healthier you.....
Brian and Keli Nestico
