About Me




I’m Erika (she/her), a second generation Filipino-Canadian, born and raised in Toronto (I’m also Anne’s younger sister). I graduated from Toronto Metropolitan University (formally Ryerson University) with a Bachelor of Arts in Environmental and Urban Sustainability.

As an environmentalist, I am constantly looking for locally made items and green alternatives to everyday products. My interest in creating candles began when I saw the need for sustainable and cute candles. I love the freedom that comes with customizing specific scents and shapes for my own aesthetic. Creating candles is my way to merge my two interests together and I am excited to share my art with everyone!


All my candles are made with 100% soy wax. Soy wax is a renewable, non-toxic and biodegradable candle wax alternative. It creates a clean burn so you can feel comfortable lighting in your home.
