Hi, my name is Ashley + I am the founder of EVLOVE Candle Co. located in Whippany, NJ where luxury candles are created with your wellness + self-care in mind. I am a small batch, woman owned candle business that started (and continues to create + make) in my kitchen.
In August of 2021, I experienced an enormous mental breakdown that forced me to quit my job + re-evaluate my life. After dealing with the sudden unexpected passing of my Dad, career stresses, and additional relationships breaking down, COVID hit us all which caused me to enter into a stage of my life where depression + anxiety was at an all-time high. Because of this, I became very invested in how I could elevate my self-care + show myself more love (if you're the type of person that takes care of everyone else first, you get it). I was looking for ways to help with my healing journey + focus on putting energy into caring for ME.
Did you know that smell is the most sensitive of our senses? Even a subtle fragrance can evoke specific emotions, moods + memories. Your sense of smell also influences your mood more than we realize. Candles were something that I have always loved because when a candle is lit, it just makes you happy, relaxed + just a sense of peace. However, the candles that are mainly available to everyone from these big box stores are very toxic, overpowering in smell or lack thereof + just not good quality. Suffering from migraines, I also am sensitive to certain fragrances + their strengths. I wanted to create a product that not only smells good + is made with quality ingredients but wanted to build a brand that promotes self-care + its importance of it. Self-care is one of those things that is essential but we often don’t take enough time for (or feel we don’t have the time for). That is when EVLOVE Candle Co. began….
EVLOVE (the word ‘evolve’ backward) became my word for 2021 + I wanted to create a product + brand that evolves + elevates our self-care routine. Our products are handcrafted, poured + cured with only high-quality ingredients. Using 100% plant-based, all-natural coconut + soy wax, each candle is blended + infused with only the best fragrance that are vegan, non-toxic, phthalate-free, mutagen-free, cruelty-free, skin-safe + carcinogen-free. Our scent family ranges from soothing + sweet to earthy + warm, all while providing the warm glow + aroma within your home. We are keeping you in the present moment + elevating your self-care routine at the same time. Each candle also has an FSC Certified wood wick which is eco-friendly + clean burning + offers an efficient burn time. All of our packaging is sustainable + reusable too!
Caring for your body, mind + spirit is your most significant responsibility + you really start to glow when you are happy. It’s about listening to your body + making sure we are taking the time to recharge + doing things that make us happy. When we care for ourselves, we can give the world the best version of ourselves. Our candles make the perfect gift for yourself or someone you care for so you can spread the love and elevate the mood of any room!
I hope that you enjoy my product as much as I have enjoyed creating them for you. Remember to follow us on social media for new arrival updates and great gift options for all holiday seasons and let me know what you think!
Sending you love, light + self-care vibes,
