Mary Claire began making candles 15 years ago and instantly fell in love. She finds joy in every part of the process. Scent inspirations are pulled from childhood memories and nature. The mixing and measuring compliments her love of cooking. Her fondness for fine art is expressed in each individually designed label. The 100% soy based wax is not only the cleanest burning option, it supports her close friends in the soy farming business.
But her candles are about more than just high quality fragrances and beautiful packaging. She is a former elementary school teacher and comes from a family of teachers. It is this love of children and education that inspired her to use her candles to give back.
A portion of the proceeds from each candle sold will go to the International Child Art Foundation. They share her belief that we can enhance academic performance and imbue global citizenship by nurturing children's creativity and developing their empathy.
Falling Into Place candles are hand poured in small batches using the finest, skin safe fragrance oils, paper core wicks and 100% soy wax.
