Little Norlisa and her Mom Jean

Norlisa’s Story

Sweet Love Luxury Candles was born out of a dark period in my life, the passing of my mother.  Five months after her passing in 2010, I was cleaning out her home in Virginia and came across candle after candle. There were container candles and votives and pillars and candlesticks. It never occurred to me my mother was such a candle lover. While cleaning, I thought it would be cool to make candles. I tucked the idea away in my mental craft-to-do-box and got back to the emotional business at hand. I didn’t think about candle-making again for six months.

The idea reemerged while visiting my brother in Texas. We reminisced about the good times with mom, laughed a lot and talked about how she wanted us to do things that brought us joy. Our conversation sparked the memory about the candle-making. Not wanting the idea to fade, I began to do research late one night, finally settling on a soy candle-making kit. It was waiting for me in Brooklyn when I returned. My flame for hand-crafted candles has burned bright and strong ever since. (All puns intended.) In 2011, Sweet Love Luxury Candles was born. 

Why the Name Sweet Love?

It’s simple.  Sweet love was what I received from my mom; it’s what I’m motivated by.
