Our Brand

About Us

Bear Bottom Candles represents the spirit of friendship. Founded in 2013 by Kym Rapier, BBCandles has gone from a handcrafted labor of love shared with friends to a cultivated passion for creating candles that evoke beloved memories of past and present. We’ve found our muse in nature and sustainability, moving from the mountains of Big Sky, Montana to the western coastline in Los Angeles, California. Our premium brand of hand-poured candles are proudly made with 100% American Soy Wax and produces high-quality, clean-burning fragrance to create moments worth remembering. Whether you’re seeking relaxation, comfort, excitement, friendship, or love, we’re here to illuminate every moment.

Our Founder

Kym Rapier is the soul and founding force behind Bear Bottom Candles. Her creative passion, love of candles and, most importantly, her love for people sparked the creation of this premium brand. Candle making was a hobby and creative outlet for this Texas native until she realized just how much fun it was to share these wholehearted creations with friends. Since then, BBCandles has become a channel that allows Kym to fulfill her passion for connecting with people and supporting her community.
