The Origin

It started with a dream to create something that could comfort people in their grief. From drawing a coloring book to being sent a universal message in 2020 to create a candle to accompany the unpublished book.

Starting in my living room, I spent months researching scent profiles and the connection between olfactory and nostalgia.

Then in my kitchen, I failed at every candle I made for 2 months straight. By the time I got it right, I was ready to throw in the towel but my best friend convinced me to do a soft launch.

In January 2021, I released first collection which sold out in less than 2 weeks. Before I knew it, I was preparing for my Spring collection, and signing up for Farmer's Markets all over the Willamette Valley.

The mission remains the same, to provide comfort to people in their grief. What we have learned is how multifaceted that grief is. We all have a desire for community, even the weirdest versions of us has a desire to be seen. We are so proud to create products that aid in fulfilling that desire. 

We make candles for weirdos and those who love us because we have a passion for providing comfort in the weeds of life.

We appreciate your support!
