beautiful + responsible

Handcrafted with quality ingredients

All candles + wax products are made of 100% natural soy wax, lead and zinc free cotton wicks, and clean fragrances and essential oils containing no harmful chemicals (free from all carcinogens, mutagens, and toxins that are present in almost ALL big box store candles and they are 100% phthalate-free). All products are hand designed and hand poured. Feel good about filling your home with incredible scents that also make unique, one of a kind decor pieces. Other products are also available including essential oil room sprays and roller balls, reed and car diffusers, soy wax melts, and more! Candles change seasonally and there is always something new coming soon!

We source as many ingredients and supplies as possible from small businesses and for any products we don't handmake ourselves, we purchase from other small and woman owned businesses.

Thank you SO much for your interest, support, and love. It truly means so much and we absolutely could not be chasing our dream without you! XOXO - Nikki, Owner
