In A Few Words
We sell luxury scented handmade 100% beeswax candles with wooden wicks !
We sell hand-poured beeswax candles with crackling wooden wicks made in Queens. Our mission to make a better candle: one with no dyes, toxins, carcinogens, phthalates and all the other bad things that are released from burning a generic made from soy or paraffin candle.
August of 2021 in the middle of a pandemic, our unemployment running out, and an eviction right around the corner, I had to figure out what I could do to stop the bleeding. After frantically looking online I found an Ad for a production assistant job in Brooklyn paying an astounding Zero dollars. This being my first gig it would take some time before it would help pay our bills but it was a start. Until I could find more gigs I wanted to do something on the side to help until they could start to pay me but I did not know what. I know at heart I am creative. I love to cook, sing, paint, and make clothes but I didn't know what to do with it. I was watching candle videos on youtube and thought I love to create and I really love Candles. Why not make a candle that I would love to burn in my apartment. The next couple of months I tried and failed at different candle designs, different scents, and different waxes.. I finally started getting paid as a production assistant and any money I had left over I would pour into practicing making candles. After a few months I felt like I finally created a candle that embodied my personality of timeless, luxury, creativity, health, self care and a scent that I would want to smell all day. After getting positive feedback from friends and family I decided to give it a try and see if others would enjoy my candles. At this point I needed a name if I was going to sell it to other people. After going back and forth with my boyfriend about a name we realized the name was oddly enough right in front of us the whole time. ( M )elissa ( Bur )nette
