About

It was always a dream of mine to start my own business but I never had the courage to do so because getting a steady paycheck was always the safest way to go. Countless times I wondered how my luck would be if I extended my hobby of making candles into a business. As a single mother my constant worry of leaving my girls with nothing made this dream turn into a personal goal.

One day while channel surfing, I came across a show where a man from Ecuador, my country of origin, shared his story of how he started his candle making business from the kitchen of his home.

It was always a dream of mine to start my own business but I never had the courage to do so because getting a steady paycheck was always the safest way to go. Countless times I wondered how my luck would be if I extended my hobby of making candles into a business. As a single mother my constant worry of leaving my girls with nothing made this dream turn into a personal goal.

One day while channel surfing, I came across a show where a man from Ecuador, my country of origin, shared his story of how he started his candle making business from the kitchen of his home. This show served as the extra inspiration and motivation I needed to gain the courage to make my dream a reality. I decided then that I wanted to take the risk. Receiving my daughters' blessings and unconditional support made my decision to take a risk that much more meaningful.

From that point, I decided to continue taking classes to improve my techniques, learn in depth about wax and wicks, colors, designs and so forth. My daughters have helped me tremendously with the development of my business. My oldest daughter chose our company's name, created the signature logo, designed the webpage, and has spearheaded the marketing and design component of the business. My youngest daughter took it upon herself to learn the techniques and theories behind candle making, so she could help me bring the finest custom hand poured candle to you.

Although at times money was an issue, together we made it happen. I took the risk and I am here today to offer you an inviting range of premium scented and unscented candles at very affordable prices. Being avid candle lovers ourselves, we want to offer our customers with an exciting and convenient way to purchase quality candle products. We are confident that you will love our candles and will soon have your very own favorites from Deysi's candles.

Sincerely,

Deysi Intriago

Owner and Mother of Shakyra & Shetnesky
