California memories sealed in wax
Certain scents can evoke a memory, a place, or an emotion. I've developed 11 unique natural candles, inspired by my experiences in Topanga Canyon, California.
Our candles are entirely made by hand in our studio, using non-GMO soy wax, natural essential oils, cotton wicks, and our own vintage stoneware containers. Our cardboard packaging is recycled material, and all of our labels are printed locally on vintage letterpress machines.
In case you were wondering, the 19 Candles company name didn't come from some ill-conceived sequel to a famous 80's motion picture. 19 Candles was an ancient Celtic ritual - a part of the Imbolic: A festival marking the beginning of spring. The role of candles in our lives is different today, but for some (like me), they have a primal nature, and the name 19 Candles is a celebration of that primal nature.
My candles can be found in a variety of unique stores in the US, Europe and Asia. For a stockist near you, or to inquire about selling my candles in your store, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
