“Good Things Take Time.”
— John Wooden

Some incredibly wonderful changes are on the horizon for me, my family, and my shop…

“Spring: A lovely reminder of how beautiful change can truly be.”

“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.

“There is so much to say about Meg and her candles. I first fell in love with Tobacco Barn, which is still my favorite, but they kind of all became my favorite. They, along with Meg, left such an impression on me that I now carry them in my store in Milford - Farmhouse302. My customers love them and love supporting the cause behind them.

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.
