about the apothecary
I've always loved candles but in 2015 I found myself needing them a lot. I was living in Juneau, Alaska where it rains about 300 days a year and life was feeling a little dark. As a nurse practitioner, I know how much good self care matters. Taking time to slow down and reflect -with a candle- has always been part of my self care routine. In Juneau, good candles were hard to come by so I learned how to make them, fell in love with the process and an obsession was born!
I've since moved to Seattle and after years of encouragement, I started my candle apothecary in August of 2018. It's been a wonderful journey.
You can find me at local markets a few times a month- most often at the Fremont Sunday Market. Stop in, say hi, and smell a candle or two.
These candles are truly made with love. I hope you enjoy them!
