About Us

                                             Our Story

Seventh Avenue Apothecary is a family owned business following in the spirit of 5 generations of Tampa business owners. Phala and Jessica are a mother-daughter team with passion. The candle manufacturing site is located in a historic building that was once a family dry cleaners, on the East end of Ybor City.
We are passionate about using our business resources to help people whenever possible. We love to be active in the community and partner with local charities. Since 2012, we have had the opportunity to help many schools with a profitable fundraising program.
We also work hard to support our dedicated employees so they enjoy being a part of the team. Offering flexible hours, training, and a sense of appreciation is why our jobs impact families in a positive way.
Seventh Avenue Apothecary artisan made candles are created by using American grown soybeans, and supplies sourced in the United States. Our candles can be found across the US and in four countries.
Always striving to pay attention to detail, quality, and offer great customer service have resulted in an expansion of our product line to include high quality home fragrance products that are reasonably priced.
We believe that everyone can spread joy and be a light in the world.

Our Process

Every step throughout the process is carefully handcrafted in house by our team of candle chemists.

Countless hours are spent blending each product base with our signature fragrance combinations to create exceptional quality products.

Poring the candles is truly an artisan craft. Created one by one every piece is special with a life story as unique as the hands that create it.


Clean burning, 100% soy wax is made from beans grown, harvested and processed in the USA.

Our candles burn about 40% longer than traditional wax candles.
