Business Spotlight: The Higganum Company

Written by Kathy Brown.

candle3Megan Mularski and her family have been living in Higganum since October 2009. Megan is a busy woman. Besides raising a family, she started making soy wax candles out of her home in 2010 with her husband after having their first child. They wanted a cleaner, healthier candle to burn in their home so they started The Higganum Company. By profession, she is a nurse, currently working at an outpatient center.  She is also going to school to become a Family Nurse Practitioner. They are currently working on raising funds to create a small candle shop in their yard on Weise Albert Road.

The candles are scented and colored hand poured soy wax candles, tea lights, and tarts. The candles are made with 100% soy wax, which is clean burning, longer burning, biodegradable, renewable, and supports American farmers and the economy; they are both natural and kosher. The candles come in two sizes of mason jars and have a nice country look to them. Tarts are a great wickless option for people who do not want to light candles in their houses. Prices range from $4.50-19.00. The candles are currently available at the Goodspeed Station country store in Haddam and Small Potatoes Crafts and Gifts in Norwich. She also has two private labels with companies in New Britain and Washington, DC.

candleThey would like to do fundraising with local schools as an addition to their business. Another avenue which they would like to explore is candle making parties for children age 10 and up, mother-daughter parties, or parties just for adults.

If you’re interested in carrying these candles in your store or you want to use her candles for a fundraiser, please contact her at her website or by phone at 860 682 0565 or by email at
