About Us


   Hello, and welcome to Southern Dezires, and thank you for visiting us today. We are a home-based craft business, located in Leland North Carolina. Even though we just started Southern Dezires in 2017 we have been making products for ourselves for years. When you have a talent ​you love and others love and enjoy something you have made it makes you feel good. This is what motivates us into taking the next step into this business journey with people like you.

This business was started to allow our family more quality time together, because of the demands of modern life most families struggle with this.

Having our own business means we have the freedom to work on projects that have meaning to us. The freedom to be creative as we like, and to have the ability to make others homes smell FABULOUS!  

Our name "DeZires", with a "Z". Why?

Because it is unique. The South is where we come from. And when you Dezire something, 

You get it because you want it!

About our Candles

All of our candles are hand made and hand poured in Leland , Southern North Carolina where we live. Our candles are made with the finest soy wax blend , and fragrance you can find . With the eco-cotton wick this candle burns great. All soy candles have a nice clean burn ! When we trim our wicks, we use a WICK trimmer, we do not use scissors like other companies do! This ensures that the wick is level when you light it for the first time . All candles are natural color with no dyes used. A true Southern way! Always keep candle wicks trimmed , (1/4) one quarter inch from the wax to ensure a clean and even burn. All candles will have warning labels attached to the bottom of the jar's . Please read before lighting your candle .

Candle Facts

It is possible for some candles to develop a light flakey appearance. This is called "frosting" and is very common with candles made from soy wax. Some candles may also develop clear "wet spots" due to the colder temperatures during shipping. This will not effect the candle burn or scent throw of your candle. We do not issue refunds for this as this is a normal trait of soy candles.
