What a wild ride the past year has been. Well the last two…I think everyone can relate to that in many different ways.
In the midst of the chaos I founded the Alchemist Studio. As I reflected on my early 20’s I realized I rarely took care of my body, mind and soul. I truly didn’t know how to slow down but as I approach my 30’s I want to learn how to respect my body, how to love my body, how to cherish my body.
With those ideas in mind I focused on creating rituals for myself and that my dear is where it all began. I wanted to create something of my own that focused on feeling good and what feels better than lighting a candle to accompany you as you dance, as you sing, as you stretch, as you unwind, as you connect.
When the idea of candles came to mind I knew that creating them with natural, clean and non toxic ingredients was an absolute must. I have been on a sustainability and self love journey for a while now so merging the two into my very own product came very naturally.
Each candle is measured, mixed and poured by me in the USA.
Both of the waxes used, Coconut Soy and Satin Soy, are certified Made Better. This makes them natural, vegan, non toxic, renewable, biodegradable, cruelty free, mutagen free, carcinogen free and phthalate free.
The scents used are also certified Made Better which makes them natural, vegan, cruelty free, and phthalate free.
The wicks are eco friendly, made from cotton and coated in a natural vegetable wax making them vegan.
I launched with two different candle collections to start with, pillars and jars. Pillars are made with a Satin Soy wax and the jars are made with a Coconut Soy wax. The jars are made from recycled glass and can further be reused or recycled. There are five different scent options which will be discussed further down.
This is a 5oz candle. It roughly measures at 2in D x 2in W x 5in H. The approximate burn time is 2 hours.
This is a 7oz candle. It roughly measures at 3in D x 2in W x 6in H. The approximate burn time is 3 hours.
This is a 8oz candle. It roughly measures at 3in D x 3in W x 6in H. The approximate burn time is 3.5 hours.
This is a 12.5oz candle. It roughly measures at 3.58in D x 3.58in W x 3.54in H. The approximate burn time is 35 hours.

As I mentioned sustainability is huge for me so of course all ingredients are carefully chosen and only sourced from eco friendly USA companies. The jars are recycled glass and can further be recycled after a good clean. The labels are printed on compostable paper. All packaging and shipping materials are recycled, biodegradable and recyclable.
I have worked on this baby business of mine for over a year now and it’s beyond terrifying to release it to the world. I hope you love each item as much as I do. So head on over to the site now, browse around and get yourself or your loved ones a candle or two.
