Originally from Virginia, Tamara Mayne was working as a designer and art director in NYC when she decided to make candles as gifts for family and became obsessed with aromatherapy and the art of candle making.
Tamara founded Brooklyn Candle Studio and to this day her small team handcrafts the candles with a blend of soy wax, essential oils, and phthalate-free perfume oils. The company uses 100% soy wax derived from American-grown soy beans for an eco-friendly, clean burn and lead-free cotton core wicks are primed with vegetable based wax. The candles are preservative and petroleum-free, cruelty-free and 100% vegan. They are an eco-conscious company, opting to use recyclable packaging and shipping materials and as little plastic as possible. Additionally, the company prides themselves on their employee earnings and full benefits as well as their safe and comfortable working conditions.
