We are welcoming a new brand into our KiSSandMaKeUp retail lineup – Healing Stone Candles!
Healing Stone Candles are non-toxic and 100% soy wax, and have a special surprise hidden in the bottom (read more to find out what the surprise is!) Not only are they creative and unique, but they come in a large variety of incredible scents (listed below) and make a GREAT Christmas gift. We caught up with the owner and candle-maker, Shari, to learn more about her company and what inspired her!
What inspired you to create your own candle line?
I was inspired to start yet another business because of my need to find a new creative outlet. I had 3 surgeries on my hands in the past due to over-usage as a Salon owner, Potter, Gardener, and Cook – my hobbies and professions took their toll on my hands! I needed to find an escape from stress and quiet my mind, but it also needed to be easy on my hands. So creating candles was my choice. When I began, I did not expect it to become a business. My intent was to just enjoy quiet time and share them with friends and family. I started in November 2019 and people were excited about them so sales were happening (to my surprise!) When COVID hit, I took advantage of the shutdown, poured more candles, and created a website and I was off and running!
What is different about Healing Stone Candles than other candles on the market?
Healing Stone Candles are different than any candles I know of because they have a healing gemstone in each candle. My candle jar in particular has a QR code to scan when you get to the bottom of the candle, which brings you to my website to identify your stone and receive a healing massage. I like to believe that the universe chooses your stone for you based on the message that you are most in need of receiving at the time you get the candle.
What is your overall goal/mission for your brand?
My goal and mission are to continue to grow this business in order to fulfill my need to challenge my creativity while enjoying peace of mind. I am very passionate about my spirituality and am an extensive rock and gemstone collector, so I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the stones and their healing properties. This brand is a complete representation of who I am.
What is your favorite candle scent?
I have a couple of favorites, but I am obsessed with one in-particular called “Walk In The Woods.” I have been blessed enough to have experienced the rainforest in Belize, and this candle brings me right back to sitting under the canopies of leaves and the sunlight pouring in between them. The smell is so distinct and this candle makes me feel like I’m there all over again.
