“Storytelling, sharing your story, is one of the most meaningful ways to connect with another person. It’s an act of kindness, and often: a means to heal.”

Signature, seasonal, custom, and limited edition scents each with a unique part of my story to share.

Natural + Handmade with Love + Purpose

Each of my natural soy candles and melts are hand-poured in small batches in my home studio in Delaware. Each scent is inspired by a person, place, or experience from my life that tells part of my story. 

As a survivor of domestic violence, I donate ten percent of every sale to my Shine the Light Campaign.

Being a female entrepreneur, it’s important to me that I embrace opportunities to work with my fellow females who live and understand the hustle with heart mentality—and, who each have their own unique and powerful story to share.
