Rest is a form of resistance.

The healing blend of Oud, Amber, Vetiver and Palo Santo work together to calm the central nervous system, relieve exhaustion and fight stress + anxiety.

In collaboration with Pretty Thing, a collective of female creatives, this candle was created to encourage wellness in the midst of revolution, particularly for the Black community and those impacted most heavily by racial and social injustices.

A portion of the proceeds of each candle benefits The Loveland Foundation, an organization committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on Black women and girls.

 

About Pretty Thing:

Pretty Thing is a creative studio + collective built by and for women. Founded by writing/producing duo Myah Hollis and Sarah Hawkins, Pretty Thing's community began as a way for female-identifying creatives to come together to tell stories that authentically represent the female experience and gaze.

Pretty Thing Tour, their multi-city event series, launched in 2019, gathering over 30 speakers and 200+ women in NYC and LA for a full day of panels, workshops, and keynotes on creativity, business, and women’s issues.

In Summer 2020, Pretty Thing launched V Busy, a weekly curated newsletter for arts + culture, money, and mental health.

Ingredients

WAX:
We purchase RAW materials and create a "proprietary" formula: it's nearly 100% soy wax, with a just touch of beeswax to elongate the burn time and give it a smooth-looking finish. Before burning any candle, make sure the ingredients work with your body.

OIL/RESIN:
The reason we include essential oil is because it’s a plant's vital "essence” where energy is stored but also the most highly concentrated nutritional and therapeutic benefits reside. This contains chemical messengers that transmit information throughout the body like a normal medicine or prescription would do. We like to call them:Plant Friends with Benefits.

Care information

Flores Lane Candle Burning Tips

  • - Did you know that wax has a memory?

  • - Be sure to allow 4 hours for your first burn OR until the entire top layer of wax melted to maximize the life of your candle.

  • - Trim the wick to ¼ inch each time before burning.

  • - Place the candle on a stable, heat-resistant surface. This will also help prevent possible heat damage.

  • - Avoid fans, vents or direct access to air currents.

  • - Do not touch or move a burning candle.

  • - Extinguish the candle if the flame becomes too large. Let the candle cool, trim the wick before re-lighting.

  • - Always keep the candle within your sight.

  • - Make sure the candle is completely out before leaving the room.

  • - Use a candle snuffer to extinguish a candle.

  • - Never use water to extinguish a candle.

it's about the ingredients.

In 2010, I was diagnosed with late stage neurological Lyme disease and was unable to leave the house. One thing that always made me feel better was lighting candles. But upon researching the candle ingredients, I realized that I was burning petroleum, coal, & unknown fragrances..I decided to make my own with healthy ingredients.
