Why we ❤️ Laurel & Vine
Ambitious mother creating the cleanest, most luxurious candles and all we can say is ahhhhhhh!
More on the maker:
Laurel & Vine founder and maker, Stephanie, is a venture capital professional committed to sustainability and clean energy. After a struggle with infertility, Stephanie became committed to minimizing her family's exposure to hormone disruptors like phthalates. Laurel & Vine is driven by Stephanie's passion to minimize the impact of life's nice to haves by crafting luxurious and truly sustainable, clean products and practices that are good to our families and good to our planet,
With a candle always burning in her home as a way to relax or focus, Stephanie was disappointed to find that many of the clean luxury candles in her home were marketed with unclear and misleading descriptions.
Candles crafted with all natural wax blends actually included paraffin wax, a highly refined petroleum product. Candles described as made with essential oils only contained a very small amount of essential oils blended into conventional fragrance oils that still included phthalates.
Unable to find a product she was comfortable burning in her home, Stephanie was inspired by the entrepreneurs of the venture capital world that turn passion into action and decided to sustainably craft a clean, conscious, and luxurious candle herself.
Laurel & Vine's passion and promise is to hand craft luxuriously presented candles made of completely paraffin and petroleum free soy and organic coconut waxes. No tricks here - there is literally only coconut and soy in our wax. Laurel & Vine candles are blended with fragrance oils that are always completely free from all phthalates.
On a mission to reduce the environmental impact of life's nice to haves, Laurel & Vine has established processes from sourcing to shipping that minimize the use of plastics and waste by carefully sourcing materials, minimizing packaging and branding, and shipping with recycled and easily recyclable materials. We also choose vessels that are easily repurposed to elevate your space.
Because Laurel & Vine cannot eliminate our environmental impact and emissions from services like shipping and even the local electricity that powers our crafting, a portion of all revenues are allocated to purchasing carbon offsets. Laurel & Vine has a permanent commitment to donate a portion of every single purchase to both carbon credits and organizations supporting those in crisis.
