WHY I MAKE CANDLES
Growing up my Mom was always burning a candle or a stick of incense, yes, incense, and there was always a glorious scent wafting through our house. She had knowingly, I assume, created a beautiful environment for her family to grow, create, laugh, fight and love. As I embarked on my own journey into the world I too found myself filling my spaces with delightful scents. Being on my own was a little scary at first, but having the scent of a favorite candle drifting through the air brought a sense of home to my little apartment.
About a decade ago, I found myself in a new city, not knowing anyone (except my husband) and a lot of time on my hands; so, I decided to teach myself the art of candle making. I experimented (and still do) with different waxes and fragrances to find, what I believe to be, the recipe for a luxurious candle that will absolutely fill your space with the most sumptuous aromas.
Scent is the most powerful of our five senses. Our sense of smell is directly connected to the parts of our brain that play a major role in controlling behavior, emotion, memory and mood. For me, a particular smell can instantly transport me back in time to a treasured memory, a fun adventure, a wondrous land or remind me of a particular person. A scent can also set your imagination free to dream of your next great adventure, love or stroke of luck.
Let my candles help take an everyday environment and make it extraordinary, where you feel the freedom to linger and thrive, to reminisce on life's moments, to laugh and to cry, to dream and to be mindful of new experiences as you write your life's story.
Enjoy life, take chances and embrace adventure.
