The "Beach House" Philosophy
Our unique candles are made with coconut-soy wax, which burns longer and cleaner than paraffin. We have two different types of candles. The first option is coconut soy wax scented with 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oil(s). Essential oils are not only aromatic but therapeutic as well. We create our own essential blends too! The other option is coconut soy wax infused with fragrance(s) made with an essential oil base. These scents have aromatic properties in amazing fragrances such as fresh cucumber-mint and sweet pear-pomegranate. The fragrances we choose are as close to nature as possible.
We hand make each candle ourselves and we are always looking for creative, natural, ocean inspired items to house our wax – currently we are hand pouring into natural shells and 30% recycled glass containers.
Each of our designs is thoughtfully embellished with natural shells, coral and/or other ocean inspired items that we have acquired. And what makes our creations even more unique and special is that we top each of our candles with a ‘happy piggy tail’ 100% cotton wick and a signature hand-made recycled glass bead.
We originally chose natural sea glass beads to mirror our obvious theme – the ocean. Many of our toppers are sea glass and we also decided to incorporate handmade recycled glass beads from Ghana, Africa. These beads are handmade by local artisans using broken windows, bottles, and other discarded glass. We love the idea that every bead we purchase helps create opportunity, cultural identity and respects the environment! Which also supports our subordinate themes - renew, reuse, repurpose. Each of our beads is meant to be cherished and reused after you take it off of your candle (prior to burning – please). Suggestions: Add it to a charm bracelet, a necklace, put it on a key chain, string it with fishing line and tie it on a present the ideas are endless.
We would love to hear how you have reused or repurposed your bead, shell, glass container, etc. If you post your repurposed part of our original creation and tag us, we will give 5% off your next candle!!
