the maker



Hey! I'm Sekayi Anika and I'm grateful you're here! I set up shop in my kitchen and started hand-pouring candles in August 2015 while recovering from a hysterectomy. That surgery proved to be life changing—setting me on course to remembering the best of me. The part of me that is constant...that is peace... that is matter how the winds of life blow. I began a meditation practice and the process of candles became another form of meditation. I loved to wake early on a weekend morning while things were still quiet and make batches of candles. The intentions, affirmations and prayers assisting me in my daily life began to extend into my candles and I crafted an intentional line of aromatherapy candles and melts inviting the candle lover to set intentions to: BE calm, BE clear, BE focused, BE inspired and BE refreshed. 


I didn’t want to be restricted to just those intentional candles. I wanted to satisfy my creative spirit  and began to offer hand-stamped tea towels, candles in handmade cement vessels and wooden cups that were then wood burned with patterns and stained, hand-dipped incense, and more. 


Basically…I was having fun!! Stretching myself to learn new things and allowing myself to enjoy the freedom and peace of mind found in creating.  I still enjoy the meditative process of handcrafting candles (and other stuff!)...still in my kitchen...still in small batches...and still for your pleasure!
