The Candle Journey


My name is Tracey Hanton and I am the owner of Praise Worthy Candles. Born and raised in Philadelphia, PA, I moved to the suburbs of Abington township in 1996 where I raised my two sons and was active in the community. In 2019, I had an opportunity to relocate my 9 to 5 to Fort Wayne, IN, and here I am continuing the growth of my candle business.

I have always been into crafts and in 2002, I began my journey into bath and body products. I was making gift baskets and I wanted to have my own products in the baskets. After trying lotions, soaps, and candles, I settled on perfecting my candle-making skills.

Having family members that suffered from Asthma, I wanted to make sure that my product would be a quality product and environmentally friendly for anyone with breathing issues, after much research I settled into soy wax.

Each candle is hand-poured and made with 100 % soy wax. Why Soy? Soy wax is a natural wax that is biodegradable and aids local farmers. It also burns clean; smells good hot or cold. Allow your senses to be tantalized.

A Candle is only as good as it smells!

I believe in providing excellent or “praiseworthy” customer service. Praiseworthy is a standard of Excellence! This begins with the selection of materials from wax, packaging, wicks to fragrances, and everything in between.

I hope that you enjoy each of the curated fragrances that are offered!
