About

Candle Scientist!

My journey really started about 2 years, realizing that no matter what 9-5 job I had, I simply was not happy. My brain started to really work and tried to organize ideas and ask myself a question, "What am I really passionate about?" I've always loved skin care and organic products and I knew that's the route I wanted to take. But, now what I could i sell? Or what am I even good at? I started, with soaps. Bar soaps. I appreciated the natural aspect of it, but will everyone else? As i thought about soaps, I realized personally that bars of soap were really not practical. I took a small break, just to gather my thoughts.

Several months later, I was at a craft store, smelling a candle that I typically buy every Fall season...and then! Suddenly! I realized! Candles. I've always loved candles, I feel like a candle aficionado! My journey began once again, but this time i wanted to become the candle scientist.

There is a lot to learn about this craft and it honestly, took me by surprise. I started with YouTube videos, articles, blogs to really understand what I was getting myself into. I noticed that not everyone gave away their "secret" formula, rather it was a personal adventure to figure it out yourself. It was fun! It really was, mixing and using different waxes ,figuring out temperatures, mixing scents and how much of it, pouring techniques, etc....It was all fun. In that moment, with a pen in my hair, wax all over the counter, with my notebook all messy, I realized. Yes! I love this and I'm going to do this.

With that being said, I wanted to create a candle that would really fill a room with beautiful scents or even a house with the memories of your grandma's blueberry pie, or that night before Christmas as a child with smells of cranberry and cinnamon in the air. I just want to take you back to the best memories of your life.

    I've lived in one place my entire life. A while ago I started to travel and in my travels I found scents that inspired me. I realized upon returning home that a scent can transport me to another place. I hope my aromas can take you there as well.
