Our Journey

Founded in 2016, Ayoka Candles Co. was established as a suite of luxurious handmade coconut-soy based candles that were given as personalized gifts to friends, family and coworkers for holidays, birthdays and other events. The word Ayoka [ah-YO-Kah] originates from Ivory Coast, West Africa meaning 'thank you’ or ‘gratitude' and at Ayoka Candles Co., all of our products are created with a spirit of gratitude to our customers. Our candles are created with the highest quality natural-based products that are sustainable and environmentally friendly while bringing luxury and warmth to your home, business, events and other surroundings.


handmade with love curated passion.
