Announcement    What We Do:
Angel’s Life Foundation a 501(c)(3) organization. Where we handcraft soy candles, bath bombs and soap. Our candles are hand crafted; made of soy wax in silver tins that are creatively packaged and make great gifts for teachers, nurses, doctors, family & friends. Our candles come in a variety of boutique sizes and scents. I started making candles with friends in Tennessee, when my husband and I were stationed at Fort Campbell, KY. We sold them as a fundraiser to raise awareness for Cystic Fibrosis research. Initially, I started making my own at home to give as thank you gifts to Hannah’s multiple nurses, doctors, volunteers and Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Staff. I then started getting orders from those very people I gave the candles to so they could give the same gift to their family and friends. From there I did an abundant amount of research on the best quality of soy wax (cleaner burning, USA Made), travel tins, premium essential oils, and candle supplies at a wholesale price. It has been a form of therapy for me to mix each scent, pour, package and sell. I listen to some great music, grab some friends and we just “hang-out” pouring candles and packaging. It truly is a family affair from our son, Brenden, our daughter Hannah, Dad, my mother, sister, best friends, time flies because we usually are catching up and chuckling about something. I personally hand-pour each candle and sprinkle the herbs on top. We also feature other crafters and artists who donate their product or a portion of their proceeds towards Cystic Fibrosis research, sustainment and awareness. Our candles have no color, are triple scented, we use paper core wicks as well as essential oils. Simple, clean and sophisticated!
Why I Package Each Candle:
I want you to be able to go from your purchase straight to being a gift, no additional packaging on your part. Our candles are great stocking stuffers, a nice personal touch for a special holiday such as: Boss’s Day, Nurse’s Day, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Administrative Professionals’ Day and much more.
Specialty Candles:
For limited times I will have specialty candles such as a Wine Goblets, Martini Glasses, Antique Tea Cup.
Custom Candles:
I can also customize the candles and labels for special occasions such baby showers, weddings, or bridal showers. Our venue is mainly word of mouth and unique special events such as local festivals, craft fairs and markets. We also make unique customized gifts for events like baby and bridal showers, wedding favors and promotional items. Portions of my proceeds will benefit the Cystic Fibrosis research in celebration of Hannah Marie and the rest of the 30,000 patients living CF.re creatively packaged and make great gifts for teachers, nurses, doctors, family & friends. Our candles come in a variety of boutique sizes & scents.

Our Story

Angel's Life is a symbol and representation for our daughter, Hannah Marie who was born with cystic fibrosis, a life-threatening genetic disease. My family and friend mission in life has been to make a difference by raising awareness through volunteering and retail sales profits online and at our store.

Our Lives changed drastically on July 22, 2012, when my only other child, my son, Army Specialist Brenden Salazar-Nelson was killed in the line of duty in Afghanistan. I created Angel's Life in 2003. I chose this name because it is a symbol of peace and salvation - now, Angel's Life has more meaning than ever. Together with my friends and family, we create handcrafted items to sell and help draw awareness for cystic fibrosis.

Our products are handcrafted; made of all natural ingredients in our store creatively packaged and they make great gifts for teachers, nurses, doctors, family & friends. Our products come in a variety of sizes, scent and are customizable.

Many Blessings,

Jovanna & Family
