Female founded and operated by two sisters living on opposite coasts of the U.S. Together we are Afterglow Creative.
After our family dog of 13 years passed of lung cancer, our mom had a moment of "what if the candles we burned all these years formed the cancer?". While we don't truly know why or how our beloved Murphy got lung cancer, the idea struck a chord. Were the candles we were burning clean? non-toxic? natural? We started hand pouring candles in our small studio apartment kitchen in Seattle, WA trying to find the right ingredients that we felt were safe to have in our homes.
After nearly 2 years of testing different waxes, fragrance/essential oils and wicks we narrowed down exactly how we wanted to assemble our candles. Each candle has a creamy coconut wax base, infused with a mix of phthalate free fragrance/essential oils and topped by untreated - FSC Certified wooden wicks giving a comforting fireplace crackle. Our coconut wax* provides an eco-friendly, sustainable, clean burn base for our candles.
*Coconut wax is a blend of coconut and soy, blended for performance, tends to burn longer than traditional soy wax.
