Who we are! 

Established in 2020 by the Founder Michelle; who wants to impact the world through eco-conscious products where luxury and sustainability meet. She has obtained an undergrad degree from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, receiving honors in her major of Criminal Justice with a minor in Psychology and certificate in Dispute Resolution. While working in high stress fields during the pandemic, including juvenile detention centers and working as a facilitator for the Alternative to Violence Project an outlet was needed to relax and get creative. She started making candles for family and friends whether it was a birthday celebration or curating scents for personal favors. Continuously receiving satisfactory reviews she wanted to expand her audience to provide these clean burning candles. Finding the perfect balance of functional art to provide you with clean burning candles you wont regret burning. 

Michelle is now a full time Digital Marketer, Digital Marketing Teacher, Caregiver, and Candle Scientist to keep the spark alive. My wonderful mother keeps the shop flowing by assisting with the candle making process and packing orders. Trying to balance the hustle and bustle of New York she makes time to meet supporters in person through popup markets. It is a heartwarming feeling to see people's eyes light up when they pick up the candle to say they've never seen such a unique candle and being included in magical moments for the perfect gift for their candle loving friend on their birthday or caring teacher that deserves flowers that will last. Also, being a part of a party favors events like graduation where the family can remember a special memory by relighting the candle as scents having the strongest link to memory.

Thank you for choosing Olympia Crafts.
