About Us

I'm Janel Stringfellow the Owner of Cahaba Soap and Candle Co. I started making soap in 2017 due to my eczema breakout. I then realized the commercial soaps and body washes I have been using are making my eczema worse. They were filled with harsh fragrances and too many chemicals to help my sensitive skin. After years of studying different recipes and oils for soap making, I found a few recipes that work great with many different skin types! I later started making candles after I discovered how toxic and unsafe big commercial candle companies are. I want people to use my products and feel confident about what they are putting on their skin and using in their homes. I really hope you enjoy using my products as much as me and my family do!

I bought a candle from you today at the Trussville farmers market. It has a great smell .

I purchased Janel’s soap and body butter from the farmers market over the weekend. I am pleasantly pleased! The soap is gentle and moisturizing. The body butter a little goes a long way! The scent is long lasting! I have found my new forever body care products for my family. I highly recommend trying them.

I’m a sommelier and I would love to partner with you to do a candle making or soap making class with a wine tasting element.
