For our scented candle - FIGARO, we collaborated with ShanTi Creations, a woman owned company located in Queens, New York. Sticking true to our values and making each and every product non-toxic, as sustainable as possible and using local production, ShanTi Creations is the perfect fit. They produce natural coconut wax candles in Mason jars for easy repurposing options and only clean, non-toxic ingredients.
After ten years building her management career in the bar and restaurant industry, owner of ShanTi Creations, Danielle O’Connor found her self wanting to create for herself instead of someone else. Loving candles, but hating that she never knew what to do with the container after and learning how toxic conventional candles are she built her own zero-wast candle business.
Get to know Danielle:
Danielle: My Time & Energy. Yep, Putting a bow on my head here--Does that sound weird? But I don’t think people realize enough that giving time is the best gift we can give and receive. I hope 2020 has brought the realization that spending time with one another is a the ultimate underrated gift. Outside of that, definitely a candle- everyone gets candles :)
If you were a dessert, what dessert would you be?
Sushi or Burger?
Danielle: Burger for sure, I’m not a sushi fan!
Danielle: Would probably be like the Friends theme song, it is just so comforting and happy the moment you hear it.
