Our names are Megan & Abhay and we are the founders of Ahimsa Soy Candles. It was 2017 when we taught ourselves the craft of candle making with the intention of gradually building our own business. It is our hope to build this business to the point where we are able to give back to our community and to charities, especially environmental and those which address mental health.
We wanted to offer a product which could be brought into one's home, bringing the natural aesthetic of dried herbs & flowers and the warmth of a flame to any space. As we both are passionate foragers and enjoy reading about herbal medicine and herbal folklore, much of our work is inspired by this.
It was important to us that the candles be cruelty-free, free from animal products, paraffin-free and for all of our packaging to be recyclable. We are proud to say that we have managed to meet all of these standards.
