I am a graduate student studying Environmental Engineering at Virginia Tech. As an undergraduate chemistry major, I loved watching colorful chemical reactions – something I still get to do when making candles. To me, candlemaking is fun “real life” chemistry, as well as a way to relax my “math/science” brain and exercise my “creative” brain!
As a student working on environmental issues, I understand the importance of using more environmentally friendly materials in my candles when possible. All of my candles, both container and pillar, are made using soy wax. I also use ECO wicks unless otherwise stated, and I use recycled decorative glass in my Elemental Series candles.
If you have any questions about my materials or methods, or would like to place a custom order, please contact me!
