Founding botany + wax came out of my love for high quality, beautiful, well executed objects, and a belief in the importance of small details. Formally trained in fashion design, I left the industry to find a different creative energy and a life that was more at ease. I am a maker of many things but discovered a love for the small batch process of candle making. My mix of rustic, modern inspired design elements blended with high quality, non-toxic, simple ingredients and essential oils are the heart of my collection. I live in South Orange County, Ca with my husband, son, and two cats, Ollie and Boots.
All botany+wax products are made in small batches for quality assurance and precision. I hand measure, mix, stir, pour, and make sure each item meets my high standards for quality, beauty, and experiences.
Candles: Always 100% US grown soy wax, fine fragrance oils that include essential oils are paraben-free, phthalate-free, vegan and never tested on animals.
Diffusers + Room Sprays: Always a mix of essential oils and natural ingredients mixed into a base free of DPG (a plasticizer used in fragrances) and VOC’s (Volatile Organic Compounds). Bamboo (an easily renewable resource) is used for reeds.
