Essential California: Storytelling through fragrance
Certain scents can evoke a memory, a place, or an emotion. I've developed a collection of natural candles and incense, inspired by my experiences in and around Topanga Canyon, California.
Our products are entirely made by hand in our studio, using natural ingredients like 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.
19 Candles was an ancient Celtic ritual - a part of the Imbolc: 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.
