Come Meet Our Amazing Candle Making Genius, Jennifer!

Hello and Welcome Back to The Turquoise Tortuga! It is so hard to believe that just about 2 years ago the seed was planted to start this candle business and I’d like to take a moment to introduce myself. I’m Jennifer, the Candle Maker, at The Turquoise Tortuga. I grew up on the east coast of SC and always loved the peaceful sound of the waves as they crashed on the shore and then I settled down in the serene mountains of Western North Carolina.

Life Outside of Candles

When I’m not in the Candle Kitchen, I am either working at my full-time job in Education, enjoying nature, reading my favorite magazines, keeping my cute cat, Codi, company, or spending time with my family. What do you like to do in your free time? We love learning more about our amazing customers.

Choosing the Right Scent

I truly enjoy experimenting with different scents to come up with combinations for our candles. Sometimes I can go overboard, and it makes it hard to pick just the right ones to bring into the seasonal lines. However, it’s worth it when we receive all of your positive feedback!
