My candle making journey started in 2012 by double-boiling wax on my stove and using repurposed jars and bottles as candle vessels. After giving the home-crafted candles as gifts, friends and family wanted more. Since then, 1502 has evolved but our fundamental value of environmental responsibility hasn’t.
"The desire to live a more sustainable life continues to inspire me to create products that are themselves more responsible and sustainable."
The desire to live a more sustainable life continues to inspire me to create products that are themselves more responsible and sustainable. All of our materials are researched and chosen intentionally, favoring ones that are recycled, recyclable, biodegradable and made in America.
As intentional as our materials are, so are our fragrances. Our fragrance and essential oils are exceptional in quality and phthalate-free. Our blends are inspired by memories and feelings, smelling simple yet sophisticated. Ultimately creating candles that have a strong throw, but fragrances that smell natural and don’t overwhelm your space.
In 2019, we joined the global movement, 1% for the Planet and pledged to give back at least 1% of our sales to environmental nonprofits. I feel it’s important to not only make better decisions about what we consume and create, but also give financial support to organizations doing the work to help solve our global climate crisis.
When I’m not in the studio pouring candles or mixing new smells, I’m at home cuddling with Margot the Beast and my handsome partner, Jonathan, or roaming somewhere in the mountains and deserts of southern California.
I thank you so much for being a part of this journey. I hope you enjoy the good smells.
