For Amanda, candle making is a family affair. Her love of warmly lit scents dates back to her childhood, as her mother burned a candle in every room, different fragrances wafting through every space. She and her sisters loved the ritual, often fighting over who would blow them out at the end of the day, and later taking up the hobby of making their own candles together. When she had a daughter of her own, Amanda found it a challenge to balance working and spending time with her family. And so she decided to channel her energy and creative career experience into her favorite thing: candles. Not only does she get to work with something she enjoys for a living, but also now her daughter is involved in the process.
