Before I ever thought about putting my name on a candle, I had a fundamental belief: The purpose of candles is simple - a way to light dark places. That’s it.
My love affair with candles began after my first therapy session following my divorce several years ago. The first thing I did when I got home was light a candle and put on some tunes. I remember playing Frank Sinatra, The Commodores, Barry White and other artists. I can’t remember the scent or brand of the candle, but what I do remember is the space it put me in…peaceful, moments of nothingness, self-reflective thoughts, pain, and even some laughs.
After years of therapy, the thing that resonated the most is you have to take time for yourself to process. Honesty and patience played a huge part of my process. Candles and music became a part of my process. I couldn’t process without a candle burning in the background.
Each candle is named after a phase of my self development and healing. And the funny thing is, since self development is never-ending and I’m ever-evolving, I’ve revisited every single phase over and over.
For me, you’re getting more than a candle. You’re getting steps to a better you and light for your dark places.
So I invite you to Light and Listen.
See you in the Light,
