Get to know us!



We connect with local recycling centers, food banks, and other businesses to utilize materials that would otherwise end up in landfills.



We repurpose used bottles and cans to create all natural soy candles. They are biodegradable and have a lower melting point which produces a slow, even, and clean burn .



  We use high quality, natural ingredients and materials that are environmentally friendly. We want to do our part for protecting and saving this beautiful planet we call home.


our story

Founder and Chandler- Lori Kirschbaum

I was inspired at a very young age by my grandparents to create and work with my hands. My grandfather was a woodworker and had an amazing old workshop full of tools, trinkets, antiques and old books. I loved to spend time playing and watching him build furniture, model ships, and hand carve wooden cars and trains!

My grandmother was also very crafty. We would bake, garden and do DIY projects around the house. I spent hours as a teenager at the local craft store reading books and researching different art techniques. I always knew I wanted to have my own handcrafted business.

I had dabbled with candle making as a kid and after trying everything from painting, making soap, and handcrafted jewelry, I decided to focus on developing a line of all natural, high quality soy candles.

I wanted to make my candles unique and stand out from the crowd, so I began collecting and using reclaimed bottles and cans to hand-pour the wax into. I wanted to take it a step further and also create my own labels. I have always loved to make people smile and laugh, so I design labels that have hip, fun, quirky sayings and artwork. I started selling the candles online, at farmers markets and craft shows around Atlanta and now they are available in several retail locations across the United States!

We are committed to protecting our environment and use high quality, natural ingredients that are safe for your family and pets. By collecting bottles and cans from friends, family and local businesses we are reducing waste that otherwise would end up in a landfill. All of our candles are hand-poured in small batches at our candle studio in Marietta, GA. We offer a wide variety of unique fragrances and fun, hip, trendy labels that are sure to bring a smile to your face and bring the perfect ambiance to your home!
