Welcome to our featured lady for JAN 2012, Sharie Hendricks, founder of LAGUNA CANDLES
Laguna Candles founder Sharie Hendricks has always had a passion for candles. In the year 2003 she conceived Laguna Candles, which is located in the beautiful, coastal city of Laguna Beach, California where each summer the world renowned Laguna Beach Art Festival is held. Sharie and her family have lived in this artsy town for the past twelve years.
Laguna Candles was founded on the concept of eco-friendly products that are luxuriously scented, clean burning and will not harm the environment or the home. Based on research, Sharie chose to utilize a soy, coconut and palm wax combination with a 100 percent natural cotton wick. It was important to have candles with extraordinary scents derived from essential oils and other natural plant essences with lead free wicks and beautifully packaged in a simple but elegant way helped to have less waste. Having vessels made of recyclable glass that holds the wax for her Laguna Candles, was a critical element to Sharie as well. "When I realized how many candleholders end up in our landfills I was amazed," she said. It was important to me that our customers repurposeour vessels instead of discarding them. Therefore, Sharie created candles in beautiful and recyclable containers that customers love!
Sharie's family have all played an important role in the company's success. Her husband and daughter are both heavily involved in the day to day. Laguna Candles will continue to expand a line of Eco friendly accessories for home and personal and look forward to continually providing beautiful, innovative gifts that warm our hearts and make our homes a more beautiful place to live while protecting our environment.
Laguna Candles home fragrance products are currently found in hotels and spas such as Marriott, and Grand Delmar. Recently, Laguna Candles has had several editorials featuring the candles in Life Style publications, such as Coast magazine, Laguna Beach Magazine, and Bask Magazine.
Laguna Candle recently launched their Coastal Collection of Bath & Body products. Designed to renew the skins radiance, the six piece set includes a soothing bubble bath, body lotion, healing hand cream, hand & foot scrub, body oil spray and body mist. The Coastal Collection of bath & body are scented with the beautiful fragrance: Water Lily and Lotus Flower.
