Being born and raised in Sicily, I feel an obligation to share the joys of Sicily through my candles. One way I do this is with the name of our shop, Trinacria, which is the name of the symbol found in the center of the Sicilian flag.
At the center we find the head of Medusa, with her snake-haired head and golden wings which comes from the massive influence of Greek culture on the Island. The wheat represents the fertile land found across the Island where olives, oranges, and many other fruits and foods grow plentifully. The three legs represent the three points of the triangle shaped island and was used on the shields of Greek warriors to represent their strength.
I look forward to sharing the scents of my beautiful Island with all of you. I hope they bring you as much joy as they have brought me throughout my life.
To create unique and pleasing candles that inspire relaxation for everyone and every home inspired by the amazing scents found in Sicily.
To create and foster serenity and happiness through quality, sustainability, and healthy products.

Born and raised on the western coast of Sicily, I have lived in the US for over 20 years and have loved candles since the day I arrived. I am honored to be able to share the scents of Sicily with my customers through my homemade soy candles.
