Laughing Candles Beeswax Turtle
Laughing Buddha Candles
Many winters ago, I was pregnant and feeling creative and deadicated to hand-making all of my holiday gifts. So I got a big pot of beeswax, some flowers I had pressed, and started dipping in my kitchen. The response was inspiring. With the support of family and friends, my cottage creations grew into a sustainable adventure.
I am still at home in the Santa Cruz Mountains, hand-dipping each candle in the sacred beeswax and growing, picking and pressing each organic flower. So every candle is made and packaged with care and intention and a bit of my son’s energy – when Janga was about two, he came out back and sweetly told me “Mommy, you’re making laughing candles,” –And so we were named.
