Hey friend! Thank you for stopping by my shop. For me, candle making has become something close to my heart and important in helping with my anxiety. After joining the military at the age of 18, seven years of difficult experiences along with my dedication to support my family started to impacted my mental health. I was losing it. By ‘it’, I mean my mind. My anxiety was winning time after time.
After finally getting the courage to seek therapy, I came to learn more about myself. I discovered that my anxiety was triggered by stress and my inability to just simply RELAX. Self-care, therapy, and candles became the perfect aid for my relaxation routine and helped me to achieve a meditative state.
Fueled by the meditative process of candle making, UNLAX Candles was born in 2019. Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness amongst us. Meaning, struggling to relax is really a common thing. I knew many others may need help as well! It became my purpose and mission to tell my story. My goal is for you to know that you are not alone. It was a candle’s flame that helped to soothe my soul, reduce stress and increase my self-awareness. I would love for my candles to do the same for you!
