Home > C3 CHANDLERS HISTORY > A Brief History of Chandlers


Welcome to C3 Chandlers

The occupation of a
Chandler started during Medieval times. When darkness would rise, light naturally became an imperative need. While a Chandler was closely connected with other workplaces of the household, such as the ewery and the scullery. Chandlers would have a separate workplace where they would procure & manufacture wax for candles. It became common place to have a personal Chandler in a larger home. As such, a C3 Chandler might have been born then.

When the 18th century rolled in, most Chandlers added making soap. With the times changing fast, Chandlers started procuring items such as Teas, Essential Oils and Coffees from ships sailing around the new found world. And for a time, Chandlers were called Ship-Chandleries. Americans then preferred to use the term Chandler shop. Today the term is mostly obsolete.

We carry on the tradition and call our shop C3 Chandlers because we were first founded way back in the year 2006 as Crystal Candle Company, then procured the rest. And now you know the start of our story.
