Simple & Clean.

I started making my wax and body products with my mother in mind. As a person with a high sensitivity to candles - to the point of migraines - and extremely dry skin, she was constantly looking for alternatives or solutions to still be able to enjoy things she liked. But ultimately we couldn't burn candles in the house, and she would burn through lotions like a wildfire on a dry grassy plain.

So I wanted to try something; what about something without a wick? And something nerdy, because that's something we both enjoy?

And the Final Fantasy Soul Melts were born!

After that I started thinking about the other problem - dry skin. She has dry skin and I have eczema, and nothing ever seems to work for me.

So I thought, 'What if I create something that is unlike anything you find in any shop, in that it only has a handful of ingredients you can list off on one hand?'
Then the second thought, 'Well, I gotta make it nerdy.'

And what you see in my shop now is the result! Of course, I do not - and CANNOT - clinically recommend my products as solutions for anyone, but they have worked miracles for myself and my mother, and everyone else I've made them for. Maybe they can for you, too!
