My story begins as a child, watching and helping my mother make candles in our kitchen and selling them at local markets near our home in British Columbia. There was always something magical to me about watching the process of combining strange ingredients together in a bubbling pot and coming out with amazing creations. As I started my university years, I began to follow in her footsteps with experimenting for my own candle making. Many years, wax explosions, burns, and odd creations later, I finally had my technique down.
In time, my candle experiments expanded into more products and I met my wonderful partner, who was more than happy to humor (if not join in), my mad scientist experiments in the kitchen. Christmas and birthday gifts for friends and family always included an assortment of our latest candle and bath bomb creations to test out.
Even back then, our core values involved creating the best products for nourishing skin, minus the unpronounceable ingredients, while still being aesthetically fun, affordable, and wonderfully scented. There were successes and failures along they way as we constantly looked to improve our practice. But with each misstep, we learned and improved....no more smurf-blue nieces!
Today we run our company out of our home with our three cats, and hold true to those same values that started us on this path. We are so thankful to those who supported us throughout the years, as well as all we have learned and been able to share with others during this process. As we look to the future, we do so with those values as our lighthouse and cannot wait to see what new knowledge, successes, and failures, lie on the horizon.
