Making Self-Care + Mental Wellness A Priority.
Scent & Fire Candle Company is a fine home fragrance brand that manufactures all-natural candles, wax melts, loose leaf teas, and organic room sprays using raw and recycled materials for environmental sustainability. Our company utilizes technology to enhance aromatic experiences through curated music playlists and online community building. With the rise of mental health issues, our products are designed to destress environments and promote self-care for mental wellness.
IT ALL STARTED IN FRESNO, CALIFORNIA
I'm Monisha. I suffer from social anxiety, SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder), PTSD, and Asthma. After being diagnosed with anxiety and depression, and not wanting to take medication, I discovered aromatherapy and burned candles to calm my environment and to keep anxiety attacks at bay. I started Scent & Fire after researching the benefits of essential oils and started curating my own scent blends in soy wax. Because of my asthma, I wanted my candles to not only smell great, but also wanted to craft candles that would burn clean and be free of smoke and soot. My candles make a gentle impact on the environment by reducing our carbon footprint. Since launching, I have expanded the Scent & Fire product line to include loose leaf teas, wax melts, room sprays, and diffusers.
We aim to promote and educate about wellness and sustainability practices through our mental health initiative, SELFish + Well™. SELFish is The Key to Self-Love™
IT'S DEEPER THAN WAX AND WICKS
At scale, we’ll be a premier manufacturer of environmentally responsible home fragrances, establish a women’s reentry employment program, launch our recycling program, and partner with mental health institutions to raise awareness around mental illness.
THE MAGIC OF THE SCENT
- Pure American grown soy wax.
- Premium essential and fragrance oils.
- Unbleached cotton wicks.
- Reusable glass jars.
- Made in small batches.
- Hand-poured for the Culture.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, the nation began to implement stay-at-home orders relegating people to the confinements of their homes. I wanted to do something to lighten up the lives of those around the country through scents and sounds. I crafted an entire experience focused on relaxation and well-being with our Quarantine line of candles. These candles came with a curated music playlist that were tailored to the theme of each candle. Within 1 year, we have gone viral and landed major press features including Essence, The Today Show, Fox News, and more. Check out our Today Show feature below.
