As a New York City teacher, I worked hard and long hours educating urban youth. After a stressful day, I would return home seeking relaxation and serenity. In an effort to find solace from the rigors of the day, I pampered myself with my distinct blend of oil and herb candles. It has always worked wonders for me, and now the serenity, relaxation, and solace is yours. Enjoy!  

Many of our products are vegan. The beeswax is the only animal-based product used in some of our candles. We welcome special orders for significant events in your life; and, if you own a retail gift store, spa, hotel etc, wholesale terms are available. Please contact me for the sales sheet and pricing

We Care!  A percentage of this purchase will benefit educational programs in Brazil via Blessings4brazil.org.

All orders need to be paid in full prior to the creation and/or shipment of all orders.

Most orders are shipped within 3-5 days of the order, except for special orders which are shipped within 5-7 days of the order.

I use USPS and ship to the address you put into your order (which should match your PayPal address). If you wish your order shipped elsewhere, please make a note in the 'Notes from Buyer'.

International order should contact me first. I ship to a select number of international locations. I'm not responsible for any VAT or other laws in your country, and will not mark it as a gift.

Hot weather is not kind to our products. If you live in a hot climate, please bring your package 'in' and let it sit in the coolness for a time before opening. We package as well as possible, but cannot be responsible for packages left in the heat for long periods of time or opened before they cool.
