I started making candles in my mom's kitchen, and now I make them in my little studio by the sea.
In ancient Rome, the Vestals were priestesses of Vesta, goddess of hearth & home
Vestal Candle was born out of my love of Mythology and named for the Vestals of ancient Rome; one of their most sacred duties was keeping the flame at the Temple of Vesta perpetually lit.
Vestal Candle is a one-woman show and your new favorite candle supplier if you like:

All of my candles are made with local beeswax, love, and naturally-derived scents. Every candle is infused with real plant oils and is made with beeswax so local that I drive to pick it up myself.
"When Danes are asked what they most associate with hygge, an overwhelming 85 per cent will mention candles. The word for 'spoilsport' in Danish is lyseslukker, which literally means 'the one who puts out the candles', and this is no coincidence. There is no faster way to get to hygge than to light a few candles or, as they are called in Danish,
levende lys, or 'living lights.'
