The Heart Behind the Candles
Welcome, sweet friends! I'm so glad that you stopped by this little corner of the internet. If we haven't met yet, I'm Annie, and Escentially Annie began as my passion project...
Raise your hand if you've ever craved a creative outlet beyond the daily 'wake, work, eat, sleep' hamster wheel. 🙋♀️
That was me. So one night from the couch, I casually Amazon Prime'd a ten pound box of wax and wicks, and that weekend, made my first batch of less-than-perfect soy candles. "It's just hot wax," I thought, "How hard could it be?" That first batch? Very hard. And very messy.
Some (not insignificant) number of test batches later we caught a rhythm, and now we've got a full-blown process laid out that allows us to craft quality candles and scented products.
All of this speaks to who I am at my core because creating a high quality product comes down to the process you follow and the care and attention you give to it. I nerd out over putting the formulations together and hand crafting each batch. I love telling the story of the seasons through scent profiles. And I love it when I get a message from a happy customer telling me that the package brightened their day.
The process is therapeutic for me, and my hope is that the candles and products we create are therapeutic to those who buy them. I hope they bring a little bit of light and joy to your day.
