About Us

Indulge in simplicity and authenticity with our hand-poured and forest-infused essential oil candles. Created in our island studio amidst the unspoiled beauty of the Gulf Islands on Salt Spring Island, each candle is a tribute to conscientious craftsmanship and the rich landscape of Canada’s West Coast. 

“Hand poured and forest infused” isn’t just a phrase—it’s our philosophy. It reflects a commitment to the quality and authenticity that can only come from hands-on craftsmanship and a profound respect for nature. Each candle we pour is an outcome of thoughtful engagement, encapsulating the spirit and essence of the lush wilderness surrounding us.

Our narrative is as unique as the candles we create, inspired by the rugged elegance of the West Coast, narrating a tale of respect for nature’s pristine offerings and dedication to the well-being of those who find solace in our creations. 

The journey from our quiet island studio to your home is a testament to our promise: delivering a tiny bit of nature’s tranquillity intertwined with the purity of essential oils, enhancing your space with a gentle, soothing aura.

So, we invite you to experience the essence of Canada’s West Coast through our hand-poured and forest-infused essential oil candles and become part of a larger narrative that values quality, authenticity, and the serene allure of the great outdoors.
