Hand poured in Toronto
Hi, I’m Sara. I’m the creator behind Sara’s Soaps and Candles (and no, I no longer sell soap but have come to a creative block on the name change – Sara’s Candle Co maybe or Stop and Smell the Candles?).
I’ve been running my own hand made business since 2016 when I started making novelty soaps for friends and as gifts. I started selling at local markets shortly after that and transitioned to only candles in 2017 when I launched my Canada Collection of soy candles – inspired by Canada’s 150th birthday that year, with scents from my favourite places: hiking in the mountains of British Columbia (my favourite place to travel), Algonquin Campfire (I grew up camping with my mom and grandparents and our favourite family camping spot was Algonquin park! I would feed the raccoons my allstars cereal – I know that’s not good now, but back then having a raccoon friend as an only child was a dream! – and we would explore every inch of the park that we could), which is also the inspiration behind Ontario Woods as it reminds me of the dense forests we used to hike through while camping all those summers growing up! I could go on, but instead I’ll add this info to the candle product descriptions. 💕💕
I hand pour each and every candle that I sell and enjoy coming up with new themes and colabs with other local hand made artisans in Toronto. Each candle is hand made with love, 100% soy wax, and richly scented with high quality fragrance oils.
