Tide & Country Candles is a Savannah based fragrance company owned and operated by Mackenzie Waters Logue. Each candle is hand poured using only 100% US grown soy wax and the best, highest grade phthalate free fragrances blended together to form unique Tide and Country scents.
It all started when I would visit my parents, and they would often be fishing somewhere near Isle of Hope. When they would get back home they would clean the fish to get it ready for dinner or the freezer. If you know anything about fishing, it is fun but smelly. You've been in the hot sun all day and now you have to scale and filet your catch...well even if you do that outside the smell follows you indoors for a bit until you got all cleaned up. I love to fish and love to eat it, but the smell is not my favorite. I would always say, "Geez! Light a candle or something!"
Don't get me wrong, the candles my mom had were great, but they just didn't do the job. This is how Tide & Country Candles was born. I had to make something that smelled amazing but had a purpose. It had to get rid of any and all smells, even the ones that end in the most delicious meals EVER.
Tide & Country not only represents the love for nature and all things outdoor, but the name also represents my GINORMOUS love and obsession with animals. Whether they are cute and furry land animals or slimy and wet aquatic ones...they all have a very special place in my heart. The perfect name was Tide & Country; it encompassed everything that I love.
ABOUT THE TEAM
Mackenzie, a native of Savannah, Georgia, graduated from Armstrong State University in 2016. She received her MBA from Brenau University. She found her love for the environment and all animals at a very young age. She wanted to create a brand to celebrate that. Growing up on the coast of Savannah with all of the water/land, beautiful homes, mixed culture, and lot of furry and aquatic friends, it made sense to combine it all. Other than making her dreams come true and continuing to grow Tide & Country, Mackenzie loves to travel with her husband, Matt, in search for the tastiest slaw dog, enjoy live music, try new craft beer, and cozy up with her little shop dog, Cosmo.
Melody was born and raised in the country. If you sneeze while driving, you’ll miss Kite, Georgia. She moved to Savannah to attend Armstrong State College and received her BS in Education and her Master of Education with an emphasis in Curriculum & Instruction from Lesley University. She recently retired after 30 years of teaching and is now enjoying helping her daughter with T&C. She is a vital part of Tide & Country Candles by helping create the wonderful scents and being an ear to listen to all of the crazy ideas. She grew up loving the outdoors and continues to spend her spare time gardening, saltwater fishing with her husband, Michael, and reading (even the boring genres) with a glass of wine.
GET A CANDLE! GIVE A BLANKET!
As you know, Tide & Country Candles is based in Savannah, GA. We have a fun, beautiful city with some of the most caring people, but we also have a large poverty rate. Tide & Country Candles loves to give back. We want to help those less fortunate. We donate year round to different organizations to help out the community and help brighten someone's day. We work with different organizations around the country to help donate to the homeless and those in need. We not only want to help out our own community, but we also want to help yours, too.
You can help us continue our efforts! Every time you purchase a candle from us you are also giving a blanket to the homeless. A blanket might not seem like a lot but when someone is cold it will help them warm up a bit. Giving a little joy and warmth can go a long way!
