Hippie's Homemade Candles was established in 2013 in my home, where it  started as just a hobby. I wanted to learn to make healthier candles for myself and my home. Quickly it became an obsession and then turned into a new journey of my life's purpose. 

As a massage therapist, I was burning so many toxic candles working for a spa. Being in an enclosed room all day with them was literally killing me. During my time as a full time massage therapist I learned the art of blending oils for aromatherapy. It was something that always came natural to me but I never knew what I was capable of until I started making candles. 

My company is named in honor of my late brother James, he had a beautiful soul and was the definition of love who was also an extremely talented artist and musician. He gave me the nickname Hippie from an infant, addressing every birthday card or note to "Hippie Girl". His death taught me to love the life I've been given & to appreciate this beautiful Earth we are lucky enough to call home.

You will find that this is not just any old candle shop. My candles are made from a deep place within myself. Each one represents a place, moment, person or experience from my life. This is not only a business for me, this is my art. I create these candles from pieces of myself and offer them to share those stories with you. Some of them are lighthearted and wonderful memories for me, and some have deep, meaningful and sometimes painful lessons behind them. 

I'm a woman on a journey of self love and I hope you enjoy my stories as much as I know you will enjoy my candles!
