Used to buying candles on sale at a mall store? Those times are over. Instead, look to the pros at Brooklyn Candle Studio, who put more care into one candle than you ever knew was possible. Each candle is made out of 100% soy wax (meaning it burns clean without noxious chemicals) and is vegan, cruelty-free, and produced ethically with fair wages. Told you they’re serious about their work.
Tamara Mayne, candle extraordinaire, founded the studio in 2013 after she made candles as presents for her family. Realizing there is a true art to candlemaking, she turned the hobby into full-time work and Brooklyn Candle Studio was born. Clean-burning, indie candles are certainly having a moment. These fit right in that category and make for great presents at the holidays, for a housewarming or hostess gift, and for yourself when you need an aromatherapeutic pick-me-up.
