Gerrianas Kandles provides mind, body, soul & crystal healing through candles! Unlike traditional candles, gel candles burn twice as slowly, and emit a warm, inviting glow. The innovative use of polymer resin and mineral oil, sourced from plant sap, forms the base of the candles, rendering them vegan and non-toxic. The inclusion of cotton wicks and organic fragrance oils aligns with my commitment to crafting safe and sustainable products. The candles are also decorated with crystals & herbs for enhanced purification!
At the age of 14, I started experimenting with candle making as a hobby. Growing up, I had always been fascinated by the flickering glow of candles and the ambience they created. Little did I know that this simple pastime would eventually transform into my own business. I wasn’t able to maintain the business due to finances; and soon after that, I got into photography and opened my own business: T. Melvin Photography. After moving to Los Angeles to pursue my photography career, I fell victim to a robbery that left me feeling both financially and emotionally distraught. Faced with the need to generate income and the desire to channel my creative energy into something positive, I turned to an art form I had loved since my early years: candle making!
As I navigated the aftermath of the robbery, I found solace and inspiration in crafting candles that not only radiated beauty but also upheld ethical and environmental values.This journey led me to establish Gerrianas Kandles LLC. Fueled by my desire to create candles that were both aesthetically pleasing and eco-friendly, I delved into the world of gel wax candles. Each candle is a labor of love, adorned with delicate crystal chips and dried flowers/herbs, adding a touch of natural beauty. From my small apartment, I oversee every aspect of the business, from candle creation to administration, website management, and graphic design. Through Gerrianas Kandles, I aim to bring a sense of comfort and tranquility to people's lives while promoting environmental consciousness.
Becoming a small business owner was never part of my original plan, but it's a path that has allowed me to transform adversity into an opportunity for growth and creativity! My mission is to continue crafting candles that reflect both my passion for artistry and my dedication to sustainability, making homes brighter and more harmonious one candle at a time!
