5B&Co. Candlemakers, a local Kansas City company, has been handcrafting unique, high quality candles for over 20 years. You might even say we are one of KC’s best-kept secrets.

As a specialty store, we offer a variety of pillar, taper, tea light, wax tart, votive, container candles, seasonal decor and home decor. Founded by Marsha Flowers in historic Weston, MO, our products have delighted customers and created a following all their own on both sides of the Missouri River and across the United States. 5B stands for "5 Blessings", which represents Marsha's children and her sister's children.

With over 170 different scents to choose from, we are sure you will find the perfect one for your home, special occasion or gift. We have mastered candles that smell like freshly cut grass, dirt, tomato vines, baby lotion, leather, whiskey, fresh baked bread, popcorn and many, many, more. We dare you to leave our store without discovering a new candle scent.

Candle making is an art and we take it seriously. Using the best oils, lead-free cotton wicks and clean burning soy-blended wax, our candles are hand poured by us (and only us) to insure the highest quality. We do not cut costs where oils are concerned because we want our fragrances to be as authentic as possible with no artificial undertone. We also blend several of our own scents so you will not find our exclusive candles sold by other brands or manufacturers.

5B&Co. Candlemakers provides a special service to customers. Once they have burned through their container candles, they can return the used, clean container and our candlemakers will refill it for $2 per ounce. Or, if you have your own heirloom cup or vessel, simply bring it in and fill with your favorite 5B&Co. scent and take home a gift completely unique that comes straight from the heart. The candles are ready for pickup in about one week and it’s a great way to reuse and recycle.
