We sat down with co-founder Michelle Simmons one afternoon to find out more about her inspiration behind these vegan, zero-synthetic candles and how she and her husband grew their passion project into a growing nationwide brand.

A feature about our limited edition collaboration with Basil Hayden’s® Bourbon:
