Owner of Splash Candles, Antoinnette Rainey, has been pouring candles in the City of Los Angeles since 2019, creating unforgettable aromas for everyone to enjoy. On October 15, Splash Candles intends to set their shop at the Taste of Soul, one of South Los Angeles’ largest one-day festivals.

“It joys my heart to contribute knowledge. I love having the opportunity to tell people about the benefits of soy candles– I’m always all ears for any valuable information coming my way,” Rainey explained her love for contributing to the collective community as a Black-woman owned business, in an exclusive interview with Los Angeles Sentinel.

Rainey confirmed she poured her first batch of candles in the summer of 2019, establishing her businesses in Los Angeles, California.


Reflecting on her experience on past of Taste of Soul events, Rainey said, “I definitely been to Taste of Soul as a guest! I used to live within walking distance from the Taste of Soul location. So, it was a must-go-to. It’s a total vibe, from the great food, mingling with the city natives, and listening to good music!”

The owner of Splash candles shared her appreciation for those who support her business, Rainey said, “It feels amazing to have my community’s support. Through local support, I know Splash Candles will continue to light up homes throughout Los Angeles, and many more cities to come!”

She continued to explain what support means to rising businesses, “Support means everything–It means supporting a dream. It means helping a parent put their child through college. It means providing an opportunity for employment. Support is truly priceless to a business.”
