A BIT ABOUT ME

KRISTA-19_edited_edited.jpg

Hippie's Homemade Candles was created in 2013 in my kitchen, as a small dream to make clean burning candles that smelled amazing.

My dream quickly became an obsession with making unique scents that reflect pieces of my own personal life experiences. Each one has a story, represents a memory or has a very significant meaning to my life's journey.


The nickname "Hippie" was gifted to me as a baby by my oldest brother James. He, sadly passed away after a long battle with cancer in 2008. He taught me so much about life, love and how to live every moment as if it could be my last on this earth. This company is my tribute to his life and the beautiful lessons he taught me. 

The candles I make are not only amazing but they are plant and botanical based, clean burning, perfectly scented and made with pure soy wax. I specialize in clean and botanical based scents, since nature is where most of my inspiration comes from. 

I offer a wide variety of fantastic scents that are unique and one of a kind, with many different styles of jars to fit any household and budget. 

Established for over 8 years Hippie's Homemade Candles has become a household name throughout the entire Tampa Bay area, known for their high quality and emotion capturing scents.
