My desire to make candles started years ago, many years ago when I was in fourth grade I was selected to go to a Summer Camp...there we made wax stick candles. I was amazed that I could actually make a candle.
Since my mother loved burning candles, I always said that I would make candles one day. When the COVID pandemic hit and we were at home it hit me that it was the perfect time to start, so I began making what I called travel candles they were only about 2oz, but of course I over saturated them with fragrance, used dye and tried to incorporate floral at the top to make them attractive.
As I learned and studied more and more, I realized safer practices, industry standards and how true candle lovers like them simple and without polluting their atmosphere with toxins. So, I only use soy wax, hemp or wood wicks for clean burns.
On top of the candles, we sell our books and journals published through JP&E, t-shirts and other cool items that support creatives. Our name JPE•OLOGY is the science behind JP&E, what helps make our business work. I established e-commerce to help bring in revenue for the publishing company, especially One Purpose Magazine.
I hope that you shop around and find something for you to help you SET YOUR ATMOSPHERE!
