Imagine that moment you walk through your door, kick off your shoes, light a candle and unwind...those are the moments we live for, those are the moments I create.
Here at Little Candle Company, LLC my team (the family) and I specialize in making luxury fragrant products sold at an affordable price. I believe a great smelling home should not cost you your entire paycheck and luxury candles should smell like more than just burnt wax.
So, who am I?
I'm a young black woman from Ellenwood, Ga, only 24 years old. I attended Valdosta State University where I earned a B.A and M.A. in English, minoring in Spanish. I'm currently an English/Spelling teacher for grades 1st - 5th at a black owned private school in Atlanta, Ga. I have a love for good smelling things, YA fiction, plants, and food. I have a 3 year old fur baby, Dutch, whom I love so much and a small business that I enjoy running in my down time. Beyond that, I'm a sister, a daughter, and a friend. I'm passionate and sophistcated. I'm genuine, loving, strong, and head-strong. I wear my heart on my sleeve, but I protect it fiercely. I'm spirtual and God fearing. I'm just a young woman, enjoying life the best way I know how.
Why did I start making candles?
Well, I was locked up due to a pandemic and I was not able to go out to the store and browse the shelves for my favorite fragrant candles. So, I did what anyone else would do; I made my own. I bought a candle making kit from Amazon and that kit turned into Little Candle Company, LLC. I launched my first collection in October 2020 and here we are now. Over the year that I've been in business I've selected over 50 different fragrances, handmade over 300 candles, gone through a multitude of candle, label, logo, and website designs, and still my company is forever growing and evolving. I like to give that credit to you. None of this would be possible without the support of friends and family, but mostly from those complete strangers miles away (forever sending my love).
I've had the oppurtunity to meet a few of you and build online relationships through instagram comments and it truly brightens my day. So, thank you! I really enjoy what I do. It was never my intent to start a business, but I'm so blessed to have had this oppourtunity. Sometimes God has different plans for you and it's best to just fall in line.
Thank you for taking the time to read my story. I hope you can sense my level of commitment to my craft, family, and God. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your ideas for inspiration for future collections to come!
Love and Light, always, all ways!
