Hello! My name is Sandi and I am a mother of two kids.
My passion has been candles and over the last 10 years, this has been my world. My candle creation started off as a hobby, which over time has turned into a side hustle through the support and encouragement of my friends.
I have spent a lot of time researching and experimenting with different scents and how to create the most organic, non-toxic soy candles.
My love of candles has driven me not only to setup this business, but to also do something from the heart and give back to the community. I have chosen two charities which have long inspired me by the source of strength that their foundation brings.
20% of all our product sales will go to these 2 charities.
The Lily Calvert Foundation was established in memory of baby Lily Sujata Calvert, who passed away aged 10 and a half months of an incurable brain condition, known as Miller Dieker Syndrome .
The aim of the foundation is to support other families experiencing the heart ache of parenting a child with terminal illness and to raise awareness of child loss and grief. LCF runs a grant scheme which supports pediatric palliative care and research. LCF hosts events and start conversations around what it is like to parent a child with a terminal illness and to live with grief and child loss afterwards.
Despite major advances in modern capacity to prevent and cure serious conditions of infancy and childhood, there remains a group of children for which cure is not possible. Often thought of as a service for the elderly, palliative care can be for children. It focuses on enhancement of quality of life for the child and support for the family
The Startlight Foundation
