her small business story
"Like many, after I got married I dreamed of starting a family. Sounds easy right? After 5 years of trying, we made the decision to seek help.
I’ll admit I had no clue how involved, and how emotional the process would be. We went through a long 2 years of doctors visits, being poked and prodded, giving myself injections despite my fear of needles, having setbacks, surgeries and failures. It was the hardest thing I’ve ever done.
But as they say...anything worth doing is never easy. And it was so worth it!
My husband and I were blessed with a baby girl. And suddenly everything I went through - the late nights crying, the anger and frustration, just melted away the second I laid eyes on my daughter.
So why am I telling you this?
Well, my daughter’s name is Nokomis. And this company was started for her.
The second I found out I was pregnant I began my entrepreneurial journey. I wanted to start a small handmade business that would allow me the freedom to watch my miracle baby grow up.
I didn’t want to miss a single milestone, birthday, or step.
I also wanted to create a business that I could be proud of - one that would give back both to mother nature and to other struggling couples.
I focused on sustainable ingredients and recycled materials, making sure everything we made was ethical and cruelty free.
I’m very proud of candle making business and our product - a truly sustainable, eco-friendly luxury candle. With custom blended clean fragrances and makesy wooden wicks - our candles are a beautiful scent experience.
And to really give back to mother nature- we will also plant 1 tree for every purchase through our partnership with OneTreePlanted.
But that wasn’t enough. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for our little girl. And I know so many couples are still not only struggling emotionally but financially too. IVF is a very expensive process."

Favorite candle making product:
“My favorite makesy product is the gold glam tin!
I use it in my signature line and it’s sold at Whole Foods stores. It is sturdy, gorgeous and holds up well in shipping so I never worry about breakage or damage. It’s the perfect size and my customers love them too.“
