About Us

Our Story

Mike Steele has always looked to take a product and make it better. He took his 25 years of talent in the drag racing industry and revolutionized it with a newly designed racing product. With a new patented design and 2 World Records he proved to his peers that it is better to lead then follow the competition. Several years later Mike was needing a new product to put in his pool store. So he started looking for a good scented candle. After burning several so called high quality candles, Mike noticed they all had certain flaws: wicks not centered in jars, poor burning, over wicking, and sooting where all common problems. His team immediately went to work solving these problems. With new manufacturing designs to control the location of the wicks in the jars, 6 months of testing wax and fragrances, thousands of hours of test burning every candle fragrant oil to find the correct wick size for each fragrance, Jazz Candles was created.
