LIFE IS AN UNFAIR HOT MESS SOMETIMES.
It's better to light a candle, than curse the darkness.
It's not realistic to be happy all the time, no matter what the motivational quotes on the internet say. Life is hard.
This entire business was created in the founder's attempts to overcome her own struggles with PTSD and deep-set trauma. Were candles the sole reason she started feeling better? Absolutely not. It'd be unrealistic and unfair to claim that these candles possess a magical power than can bring your energy back and heal all your issues. I think we all know there are some toxic 'self-care' brands out there that like to claim their products can 'fix' you.
Candles can, however, be a small part of a healthy routine of self-love and nourishment.
They give you the time to relax, refresh and recharge. They can trigger the happy smell memories that help you escape from whatever personal hell you're trying to deal with in the background of your life. So it's absolutely okay to sit in your comfy clothes, sip your fancy drinks, and keep taking time for yourself until you're you again. No one understands that better than the person who started this company.
