My name is Sarah. I am the designer, creator, and mastermind behind Feather & Flame candles. Allow me to share the story of how my hobby became a business with you.
A little over 10 years ago I was on maternity leave from my job in retail sales. My Mom got me a small candle making kit as a gift. I have always loved candles, so this was a lovely surprise. Life was hectic at that time, but I decided to try out the kit. I made a few candles with the provided materials in the set. I kept a couple, and I gave a couple away as gifts. I discovered there is so much more to candle making than I thought! Before I knew it I was experimenting with scents, and trying different vessels. Every time I made a few I always shared with my friends and family. This continued periodically as life would allow. In a few years time I started getting request from people wanting candles. So, I started making more candles! Friends started telling me that they would pay me if I made them another. I really enjoy when someone loves what I've created.
We moved to a small community in Oklahoma with our kids, the ride continuing as it does. Our visits to our local Farmer's & Artisan Market every Saturday began to look like an opportunity. With the support of my husband and family I decided to take a chance. I always put 100% into what I do, therefore, my research began. I studied the science behind candle making, and turns out you do need Algebra! Not to mention the chemistry! I have experimented with the process, finding failures and successes along the way. So, after much thought and discussion, I prepared a large batch and brought my inventory to the local Farmer's market. We were a hit! I started to believe it was possible to achieve my goal. That's how it all began.
It is my intention to create amazing products that bring joy into your world. I have worked tirelessly to design our candles for the best experience. All of our candles are made from 100% Soy wax. We will never use paraffin, or additives. I have developed each of my unique candle scents using high quality fragrance oils from top rated manufacturers. Whether it's time to get energized, you need a moment of peace, or you want to make the day magical. I sincerely hope you enjoy my creations.
