Our Story


Welcome to Rae! This all began as a hobby during the pandemic as a way to soothe my depression and anxiety. After months of perfecting my craft and gifting friends and family my candles, I decided to take a chance on myself and start my own candle company. 

Working in the fashion industry and having a background as a candle buyer, I was able to learn a lot about the business side of the candle industry and it was exciting to now also be on the creative side. It’s been an exciting journey learning this trade, making mistakes and ultimately being able to share my candles with the world. I hope these candles bring you the same joy, calm, and peace they bring me.

It took me about a year to get to where I am with this project and through this year I have learned so much more about the business and myself. My friends and family who supported me along the way with nothing but love and encouragement really helped me get to where I am. I am surrounded by an amazing community of people who not only encouraged me but also helped with their incredible skills from logo design to building a studio. I am extremely thankful to everyone who helped me along the way!

I'd like to honor a beautiful friend, Giselle Field-Fernandez, who we lost this year and who helped me with the design process and establishing my brand identity. She was always willing to help anyone in need, a huge advocate for giving back and taking care of the planet, and lived life to its fullest. She left us with a quote that completely embodies what this brand stands for,
"So Live big. Live for those we've lost. Live for the future we want to have, the people we want to become. And celebrate every moment."

When you light one of these candles, celebrate that moment because even the little moments in life deserve to be celebrated. 

With Love & Light,
