Our Philosophy

Unique & Rare Aromas

We take pride in sourcing rare and memorable scents. Our collections are uniquely distinguished and exotically crafted, yielding an eco-friendly 40+ hour burn time.

Non-Toxic, Vegan, Eco-Friendly

Our candles have been mindfully sourced using 100% pure soy wax, derived domestically from American farmers. We always use lead & zinc free cotton wicks with phthalate-free fragrances. Infused with natural essential oils, each candle is petroleum-free and individually hand-poured in re-usable glass containers.  

Energy & Mood Shifting

We believe in the power of candles to subtly shift our environments, thereby shifting consciousness. Our candles are an invitation to create soft atmospheric environments that promote peace, sensuality, & deep relaxation. We invite you to get lost in the sultry, intoxicating and exotically rich aromas. Cast spells of love, protection and bliss. Find the divine in the simple. From our hearts to yours, we sacredly pour these high intentions in to each of our candles.  


Founder Sukie Jefferson 

About the Founder

Seattle born & raised, Sukie is the proud daughter of 2 Waldorf School artists/educators. Encouraged from a young age to explore the world, Sukie spent 4 years in Atlanta, GA becoming a cum laude graduate of Spelman College where she double majored in Sociology and Anthropology while completing a minor in Public Health from Morehouse College.

Her interest in cultural anthropology and global health led her to study Western and traditional Brazilian health practices in Bahia, Brazil while researching environmental justice issues in the local favelas. Just one year later, she moved to Mwanza, Tanzania where she spent a summer evaluating a rural micro-finance program that brought reproductive and sexual health services to marginalized women and adolescent girls.

After completing her Masters and settling in Los Angeles, she soon felt deeply called to channel the aromatic essence of her global travels in to high-quality candles. Sukie’s relationship with and perception about candles (which she discusses here) has always been unique. Candles for her are a vehicle by which we can come to know deeper levels of relaxation, self love and sensuality.

Understanding that she had a gift to share, she spent the next 2 years perfecting the science of her craft as candlemaker, specifically looking to attain the “perfect burn”- candles which she describes as emitting strong fragrance while burning evenly every time, and leaving no residue.

What began as a passion project soon grew in popularity among her friends, co-workers and family, such that she opted to launch her growing business for the broader public in the spring of 2018. Today, Sukie's Candle Co. now sells in over 13 stores, has grown to a beautiful team of 6 and proudly ships her handcrafted candles across the country!
