We are always on the look out for candle companies. If you've been to the shop, you've seen the wall that is completely dedicated to candles- you may say we are candle nuts.
Lightwell Co. and it's minimal, matte white candles made it's way to our shop late this summer and since then we have made multiple re-orders thanks to all of you loving them as much as we do! They also recently added room fragrances to their product collection and they seem to be fitting in just right at the shop. I think it's time to learn more about the brand and the people behind it.
This Texas based brand was established in 2017 by Morgan and her husband, Gary. Morgan says having her husband be so supportive is what pushed her to make her own candles. After years of hoarding candles (she had cabinets stocked with candles), Gary suggested that Morgan try to make her own. "So, that lead me to wondering the aisles at Michael's having no idea what I was doing. I began creating candles as gifts for family and friends because who doesn't love candles?!" But seriously.... who doesn't?
The couple had a love for neutrals and clean lines and knew they wanted this aesthetic to be represented by their brand- something that was simple, yet beautiful. This is literally music to my ears. They believe their products can be used in many styles (modern, rustic or bohemian) because of the minimal aesthetic. It's all about the balance when decorating your home!
GRAY has high standards for candles and fragrances as does Lightwell Co.. Morgan began noticing head aches while burning candles she had purchased (often associated with paraffin wax and artificial fragrances so check your current candles list of ingredients!). She made it her mission to create a candle that was clean burning. This started with a custom blend of soy and coconut wax and essential oils. This ensures the candle is never overpowering while it burns.
"Our goal behind Lightwell Co. is to keep our products as natural as we possibly can while eliminating excess toxins released into the air we breath."
