But why a candle company?
I really just loves candles!!!! But on a more serious and personal note, like many moms, after having my son, I lost touch with my loving me, self-care and how vital it is for our mental health. I just did not feel adequate.
___
Postpartum is real; and although I used all the strength I had to not spiral down that path, there was one day when I completely didn't recognize myself. Racing thoughts, difficulty sleeping although I was exhausted (literally watching my baby sleep), excessive worry about the baby’s health, development, and safety. Not to mention feelings of inadequacy, doubt, having the "shakes", insecurities, and lack of confidence have fully set in.
___
After meeting with my Doctor for one of my postpartum check ups, she informed me that I was suffering from postpartum anxiety. Something that affects just about as many new moms as postpartum depression does - and can be just as debilitating - but just not talked about as much. That was the day when I knew I needed to get back to loving me; doing something for me!
___
There are several ways to combat postpartum anxiety; one of which is doing relaxing activities. I already LOVED candles so I thought, why not purchase a candle making kit, just to start a new hobby (you know, as a way to "recharge"; do something different and fun). After I made my first 6 candles - I felt relaxed and happy; something that I haven't felt in a long time. It was at that moment that I realized that I am feeling relaxed and happy because I am making a choice to do something about how I am feeling. I felt like I was living again.
___
My husband, my son, those around me, and whatever else was not responsible for my purpose, my happiness, nor my love for me. I WAS! I am in charge of how I choose to live each new day. I choose to smile. I choose to be strong. I choose to do what is necessary to fall back in love with me. Why? Because, it's bigger than me. I am surrounded by people that loves me and (at the time) I had a newborn who needed the best of me. And how could I exude who God made me to be if I didn't believe it?!
___
That's what making those candles did for me that day! There was a burning desire to use the craft as an outlet to express, uplift and inspire others; just like it did for me. I knew I couldn't be the only one who lost their way...who didn't recognize themselves anymore...who doubted the person God made them to be; who simply felt like they did not have a true purpose on this Earth.

Plus, on a lighter note, I believed in the power of fragrance in that it promotes living a healthy lifestyle, self-care, and aids in taking care of the mind. It induces a calm sense of well-being to our busy and full lives. And lighting a candle is the perfect way to add a wonderful fragrance to any space, creating a cozy and intimate atmosphere – even when spending time with yourself!
___
What kind of candles and wax melts do you offer?
My line of candles and wax melts are made from 100% Natural Soy Wax, produced in the United States; made from renewable and sustainable materials, grown by American farmers. You will have the option to choose from some classic scents such as vanilla and lavender, floral, fruity, clean and fresh to even a masculine scent; all of which can burn all year-round. Each scent is hand-picked and inspired by my desire to create beautiful, sophisticated, and empowering aromas in your home!
___
What does your brand represent?
Each candle and wax melt is named after a word that will EMPOWER YOU to SELF.love. And with each candle and wax melts is a Call to Action. As I hand-picked the line of scents, each one empowered me in various ways based on the notes of each fragrance; EMPOWERING ME to love me, have self-care time, boss up, make certain moves, walking differently, change my mindset, living purposefully and overall, just being a better version of Paris.
___
I wanted to pass this EMPOWERMENT on to you; that when you open your candle and wax melts, take on the Call to Action, it will touch YOUR life in an unspeakable way.
___
And as I continue to embark on my self-care, SLEF.love, and empowerment journey, take the journey with me – uplift and empower yourself to be better every day.
___
Once you light one of my candles and follow the Call to Action, it will spark a light inside of you to not only SELF.love; but empower you to find someone or something that inspires you to continue that journey; even if it's just lighting a candle.
