Slow Made's Origin

Candles have always been a favorite way to unwind at the end of the day, while reading a book, soaking in the tub or just enjoying some quiet time. After discovering that candles were emitting unwanted chemicals into the air, she began researching alternatives. Inspired by the principals of the slow-living lifestyle and desperately wanting to contribute good back to the environment, SLOW MADE was slowly coming to fruition. What started as a desire for clean-burning candles for her own home, soon became wanting to share them with others. We look forward to continuing to craft sustainable, non-toxic products with intention and purpose.


Slow Made is rooted with the following principals

S = Sustainable, minimizing environmental impact

L = Local, supporting small business

O = Organic, not mass-produced or processed

W = Worthwhile, created with intention + purpose SLOW MADE is an organic and natural way of living, a connection with yourself, those around you, and nature.
