We go back to basics, but we don’t sacrifice quality: our hand poured scented coconut-soy candles are crafted from the simplest of ingredients: natural coconut and soy wax, wood wicks (for maximum cozy feels), lead-free cotton wicks and the highest quality blend of phthalate-free fragrance and essential oils.
We select sustainable materials as best we can when it comes to the creation of our candles and packaging, while also creating in small quantities to maintain quality and care and to avoid unnecessary waste.
We're constantly learning and striving to improve on our green practices, so we appreciate any insight and tips that we get. :)
Thank you for making the conscious decision to support my small business. Mala evolved out of a passion project of making candles in my spare time. My aunt who lived in the basement of our childhood home at the time was constantly burning candles, so it is something I naturally took to for self-care as I grew older. In late 2019, I was let go from my marketing job - right before Covid made it's first appearance. Taking my savings, I decided to go with my gut and give myself six months to see if I could turn my passion project into something more.
Flash forward six months in, I hired my dear Mum as my first candle maker and employee! We've slowly grown our team since then and with your support, we've been able to bring our craft into more people's homes!
Three years in, our mission has remained the same. By choosing our candles over mass produced ones, you are making a great impact on a small business while lessening the environmental impact that typical mass produced candles have on Mother Earth by choosing to shop handmade.
Without you, our tiny but mighty team wouldn't be able to do what we do everyday, so thank you!
