Project Description

Mind Your Own Beeswax LLC is a sustainable black and woman-owned business that handmakes organic beeswax candles. Our brand has three pillars: artisanship, sustainability, and radical self-care. The three pillars of MYOB are the primary focus in how and what we curate. The founder, Nicole Harris, started making candles during her last semester of undergrad. She struggled with allergies and wanted to find a holistic solution.  Thus, Nicole merged her interests in home goods and apothecary to formulate beeswax candles. Nicole  hopes to revolutionize the home goods sector by providing artistic vessel and the benefits of beeswax, because "healthy starts at home." 

Beeswax is a natural air purifier because when burned it releases negative ions into the atmosphere and binds to positive ions (dust, dander, and odors). Beeswax candles are the future because they're sustainable, non-toxic, and medicinal (beeswax candles improve symptoms related to asthma, anxiety, and allergies).

New information is emerging about the toxic nature of paraffin wax candles as they emit carcinogens. Soy wax candles are a popular go-to, however, soy emits high levels of estrogen. Beeswax is non-toxic and smells amazing. 

There are no words for how much we deeply appreciate your support. We will use your donation to purchase supplies to increase inventory as the business is rapidly growing. Thank you in advance!

The Campaign FAQs

Why beeswax?

Beeswax is a natural air purifier because when burned it releases negative ions into the atmosphere and binds to the positive ions such as dust, dander, and odors. Beeswax candles are the future because they're sustainable, non-toxic, and medicinal (beeswax candles are known to help with issues related to asthma, anxiety, and allergies) which means they're perfect for any space.

Is your business sustainable?

Yes, all 4 oz, 8 oz, and 11 oz candles are made with amber glass jars. Also, beeswax is a natural resource.

Do you plan to scale?

Yes, my plan is to scale into major brands like West Elm, Target, and hopefully, make it to "Oprah's Favorite Things."
