In 2000, entrepreneur Bart Kennington was exposed to the dangers of lit candles after an unattended candle sparked a fire that destroyed a neighbor’s home. Bart turned to a mug warmer he was given as a gift and realized that it was the perfect solution to releasing a candle’s fragrance without the need for an open flame. Bart‘s idea caught on quickly and within a few years Candle Warmers Etc. was selling a variety of candle warmers to over ten thousand gift stores across the United States. Today the company leads the rapidly growing candle warmer industry with over 140 candle warming styles across nine unique warming collections and 250 wax products.
