Warmth of a Memory + Strength of a Story

My granddaddy, born and raised in Mexico who lived his adult life and raised his family in Goose Creek, South Carolina, loved to garden. Flowers and vegetables in abundance, and, from what I can remember: a beautiful fig tree. Family visits to my grandparents house often included backyard summers among the blooms and under the trees. Reminiscent of many a happy memory spent at my grandparents house, this scent captures not only the sweetness of the fig but also the herbal and floral notes of the tree itself.

Candle Safety + Burning Tips

It is best to keep your candle wick trimmed to no shorter than 1/4 inch before each burn (more often than not, this happens naturally and you seldom have to trim). Once lit, it is best if not imperative to burn the candle for at least one hour to establish an even wax pool that reaches the edges of the vessel. Soy wax has a memory; it has the tendency to follow the same burn radius (wax pool area) as its previous burn. Establishing an even wax pool is highly recommended to maximize the life of your candle.

Burn your candle within sight and never unattended. Keep away from drafts and vibrations, and free of any foreign materials including matches and wick trimmings. Keep out of reach of children and pets. Never burn a candle on an uneven surface or near anything that can catch fire.

Shine the Light: Campaign for Domestic Violence Awareness

One in five women in America will experience domestic or sexual violence in her lifetime. Every nine seconds a woman is assaulted or beaten. Nearly twenty people per minute in America are physically abused by an intimate partner; during one year, this equates to over ten million men and women.*

As a survivor, I am committed to my endeavor to help those who have been affected by such violence and abuse. For every candle sold I donate ten percent to my Shine the Light Campaign which supports organizations and foundations devoted to raising awareness and fostering advocacy, and who provide a voice to victims and survivors.

there are two ways of spreading the light: to be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it." - Edith Wharton

About the Process

I hand pour my candles in small batches in my home studio in Newark, Delaware. Each candle is handcrafted with precision, care, and with respect to traditional processes of apothecaries past. Simple and modern with small-town and vintage charm, these candles bring warmth, comfort, and a rustic sophistication to any home.

I use natural soy wax made from American-grown soy beans along with lead and zinc free natural cotton wicks, providing for an eco-friendly, clean and even burn. My candles are scented with premium grade fragrance and essential oils. No added dyes or chemicals.

Each scent is carefully developed and mixed by hand. Each candle is cured for at least one week, often longer, to allow for a sincere marriage of wax to oil and true development of aroma.
