Each candle is carefully hand-poured and decorated. All decorations are made of wax, which will cause them to melt with the candle. This reduces risks of non-wax objects causing a harmful, fire-wise experience.
Some jar-candles include labels that represent the immigrant and/or Latine experiences that occur in the United States. Some of these are in collaboration with other immigrant-owned businesses. These candles are meant to represent you.
Make it yours!
I am always open to creating whatever you have in your beautiful mind: label customization, specific scents, specific colors, and decorations. Just let me know!
