-Hand-Poured in San Jose, CA
A day rarely goes by that I don't have a scented candle lit in my home. Up until a couple of years ago, I was
one of the many people who shopped at Yankee Candle and Bath and Body Works for my candles; but then I learned
why my jars would turn black after a few burns. I was devastated! That black soot that most of us are all too familiar with,
come from all the synthetic junk that's found
in most candles these days. It's not only turning our jars black— we're also breathing it!
I tried to find natural options, and the ones that I did find could hardly scent
a small bathroom— let alone a large living space. So, I started to experiment ... I started with a soy candle kit from
Candle Science and moved on from there. Before I knew it, my kitchen was taken over by Soy Wax and Scented Oils. Every night when my kids would fall asleep, I’d turn into a mad scientist in the kitchen mixing scents to come up with my next favorite.
Then, 6 months ago I started experimenting with Hemp Wicks. Most Hemp Wicks that I found
are made with Bee's Wax, which is a clean burning natural wax; but, my Vegan friends wouldn’t be able to enjoy my candles because of it. So, I started to make my own wicks with all natural hemp cord and Soy Wax.
I've gone through A LOT of hemp honing my ability to create the perfect size wick for nearly every size
container I've used. After months of hearing "Man! you should sell these!" I finally created
Wick'd Hemp Candle Co. I truly hope you give my candles a light and I would LOVE to hear your feedback.

The Evil Eye
The Evil Eye, first recorded by the Mesopotamian about 5,000 years ago in cuneiform on clay tablets, may have actually originated as early as the Upper Paleolithic age. We find this figure in Jewish, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, and Hindu societies. The Evil Eye, Mal de Ojo, Nazar, Mauvais Oeil, or Greek Matiasma is a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually directed towards a person who is unaware. Many cultures believe that receiving the Evil Eye will cause one misfortune.
The Evil Eye is a big part of my culture designed to protect us from Nazar and has always given me a sense of security. I've included an evil eye-beaded hemp tassel on all my candles and reed diffuser bottles in hopes to extend that sense of security to all of you!
