Hi! Tan here.

If you’re someone who finds it challenging to slow down- perhaps there’s a constancy to life that never seems to end, and quite frankly, it’s exhausting….

Welcome to the club – because I feel the same way!

I created this candle range to help you escape. Burning a candle doesn’t require any extra time in your day, but it will fill your space with a scent that can inspire you to rest, pause for a moment, and take a breather. The fragrance of a beautiful candle and the glow of its flame might seem insignificant… but some days, it’s the little things we cling to that could spark that much needed moment of peace and joy!

So why not take a moment to browse my range and see if there’s a fragrance with a beautifully paired illustration that can help inspire a little r&r in your day.

It is more blessed to give than receive…

This Christmas, are there people in your life who could be encouraged in a small way? Someone who is experiencing a tough time? These candles were designed to bring a little light to people in your life- in any circumstance.

This is why I created my value sets. If you purchase a value set of 3 to 5 candles, you’ll have a small supply of gifts ready to go when you need them.

Simply select the scents and I’ll take care of the rest.

Don’t forget- FREE shipping over $85.00 with the code “FREESHIPPING” at checkout.
