Michelle & Branden
Thank you for stopping by! I'm Michelle and the handsome guy in the picture next to me is my boyfriend, Branden. We make individually handmade candles and wax melts in small batches from our home in Camarillo, California.
Before the lockdowns, Branden had a successful coffee business and in addition to my day job, I worked as a bartender by night. Then the pandemic came and turned everything upside down for us, just like it did to countless others.
During the "off time" I delved into two things I had been passionate about my entire life: sailing and candles. I earned my skipper's license in 2020 and at the same time, jumped head first into the world of candle making. After literally hundreds of hours or research, studying, practicing, mixing, pouring and testing, what started out as a hobby eventually manifested itself into a business. I love the creativity that comes with making candles, working with wax, and most of all, discovering new fragrances. Oh my, ALL those incredible aromas! Each one evokes a different memory and just takes me to a different happy place. Needless to say, our home smells AMAZING with all of these fragrances being used every day!
I do the the mixing, research, buying, experimenting, testing, pouring, photography, marketing and website building and Branden helps me with literally everything else, including building our workshop, placing wicks in the center of candles, designing our logo and affixing labels.
If you enjoy our products and feel so inclined, please follow, like, share with your friends and give us a review. We'd love to stay in touch and share this wonderful and crazy journey with you as we grow and evolve with new products and scents.
If there is a specific fragrance that you have your heart set on that we don't carry, just let me know and I'll do my best to find it for you.
Your enjoyment and satisfaction is extremely important to us. If you have any concerns or questions, please send a message and I'll get back to you personally.
Thank you for visiting and supporting our small business. It's truly appreciated!
Love and light,
