About

From a place of feeling stagnant to finally finding my creative spark and even saving my life.

I live in Memphis, TN with two beautiful cats that I just adore. Currently working as a Flight Attendant for the last 17 years and when I wasn’t flying, I found myself having a ton of down time when at home and needed something creative to spark up that creative side in me again. With my strong love for candles and really fragrant scents, I found myself purchasing all sorts of candles throughout the years from all sorts of stores and manufacturers. Not realizing most of the candles purchased weren’t really made with the best elements or materials such as soy wax or eco friendly cotton wicks. Unbeknownst to me, residue and soot had found it’s way on my walls and inside my cabinets and even in my refrigerator. After investigating and researching the variety of waxes and learning the difference between 100% soy wax and soy blended type candles that were probably less soy and more paraffin that you see labeled on store bought candles, I thought I would give candle making a try and create my own environmentally friendly and safe to burn candle with an extreme fragrance to follow.

Well, what started out as a hobby making soy candles quickly grew into a passion and now a business that I enjoy. This passion moved me to explore and expand my talents to use my creativity in other areas I have always been interested in as well like Bath & Body. I delved right in with no hesitation making handcrafted artisan soaps, scrubs both for body and now face, body butters and shave butters. I am getting the chance to create original scents, make toxin free and environmentally safe and clean burning candles, design incredible soaps, and whip up batches of extra moisturizing body butters with wonderful scents. I explore new ideas daily while still learning, and perfecting my craft. Getting the chance to challenge myself creatively is what was missing in my life for awhile. I feel rejuvenated with purpose and drive trying to make the best products I can possible. Being an observant person and one that pays attention to detail, has paid off. I am a firm believer that things happen for a reason, and it is never to late to start a new journey. Life evolves daily and how you choose to recognize the evolvement is up to you. I chose to take a chance on faith and leap feeling grateful I did and not regretting a single moment. This whole experience has been environmentally educational, therapeutic, creatively challenging as well as emotional, but the reward has been the constant satisfaction and appreciation of my hard work from my wonderful customers. Having been diagnosed with stage 2 Colorectal Cancer back in October 2018 and being told in February 2019 was cancer free, I really believe having this shop, staying creative and being able to fill orders for my loyal customers and new customers was a blessing for getting me through that trying experience on top of my faith and positive attitude. I was always told while going through treatment I needed to fight and stay in a positive headspace to win. I made the decision to keep my shop open because I knew having my Etsy Shop as a distraction to keep normalcy in my life would save my life.

Soy Candle Instructions

-As with all candles, the first burn is the most important.
-Allow your candle to burn for at least 1 hour or until wax melts all the way to the sides of the container- this will ensure tunneling doesn't occur.
-To prevent your soy candle from producing black soot, always trim your wick to 1/4" before lighting your candle.
-Do not burn candle for more then 4 hours at a time.
-When only 1/2" of wax remains, it's time to let your candle go.
-Feel free to wash your container with soap and water for reuse.

What’s the difference in Eco Cotton Wick and Wood Wick

ECO Cotton Wicks are designed specifically for natural waxes like soy wax. It is a flat, core less, cotton wick with unique thin paper filaments interwoven for burn stability. Lead free and Zinc free.

Eco Cotton Wicks Offer:
- Cotton flat core less wick
-Enhanced curling for self-trimming
-Minimized mushrooming, soot and smoke

Wooden Wicks
-achieve a fast melt pool formation for quick and excellent hot throw
-produce a tantalizing crackling sound when burning
-have no mushrooming with little carbon buildup, debris or sooting
-are rigid and require no straightening
-can be used in all candle wax types

How do you use a wax melt?

Step 1
Break one to two cubes off of the solid wax brick and place in the top of your empty and clean warmer. Wax melts/tarts can be mixed with other fragrances to make your own unique fragrances. They can be melted and remelted as many times as desired or until the fragrance has burned off. The design varies based on brand, but some brands require melts specific to one style of warmer. Any warmer with a bowl on top fits a vast selection of wax melts.

Step 2
Plug the electric wax warmer into a wall outlet. Flip the switch on the warmer to turn it on; many of these feature a light bulb so it is easy to tell when the warmer is on.

Step 3
Turn the wax warmer off when you are finished using it and unplug it.

Why does my soy candle have a white coating developing around the top of the candle and the insides of the glass?

During the fall and winter months - it is possible for some candles to develop a light flakey appearance. This is called "frosting" and is very common with candles made from soy wax. Some candles may also develop clear "wet spots" due to the colder temperatures during shipping, frosting may occur. This will not effect the candle burn or scent throw of your candle. We do not issue refunds for this as this is a normal trait of soy candles.

Why does your processing times change from days to weeks?

I’m a flight attendant and generally travel about two weeks out of each month. Instead of placing my shop in vacation mode, I change my processing time to up to 2 weeks. I prefer to leave it open allowing new and returning customers to shop and keep an open line of communication ensuring their order will be shipped promptly upon my return. If my timeframe happens to not work while I’m away, I apologize in advance and will be more than happy to fill that order once processing times are back to 3-5 days.

How are your candles made?

All of my candles are made out of only the finest ingredients. I use 100% pure soy wax, gmo-free and all grown in the USA, 100% pure eco grade cotton wicks and phthalate free fragrance oils. I do not add any chemicals to my candle wax to make them "throw" a stronger scent.
