When I think about candles, I think about dinner parties, long talks on the patio, or rainy evenings with a good book. They are the centerpiece of quality time - both with others, and with yourself. In 2014 I ventured into candle making as "just another hobby." But then I realized something (besides the amazing smells lingering around my kitchen). It felt GOOD. It was super empowering to be able to create something all by myself that was way more earth-friendly than many of the other candles on the market. This led to many, many other revelatory moments where I thought to myself, "I bet I could make that." And in fact, I could. More on that later.

The concept behind my shop is to combine all the things I adore: literature, planet earth, relationships, and an all around cozy life. Each candle is a reference to a story or character, and is meant to bring you and your people closer together; whether its your shared love for Earnest Hemingway, or the wonderful scent of sandalwood drifting through the air. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Thank you for taking the time to look at my shop, supporting small businesses through Etsy, and helping me pursue my dream! You're the best.
