Spoken Flames

Enjoy the multisensory candle experience of Spoken Flames: the soft crackle of a fire and the mantra of spoken word. Founder Shavaun was obsessed with candles and the relaxing aromatherapy that they provided. She decided to elevate the candle, enter the inclusion of spoken-word-type mantras to get you in a powerful state of mind while you cat-curl around an intoxicatingly scented candle. Feel affirmed by each candle message—which even comes to life with a spoken word poem or affirmation via augmented reality (AR).

Shavaun thinks self care is multisensory: from the importance of daily rituals, to mental health, to relaxing aromatherapy. Why settle, she decided, when you can have a one-stop-shop for all of it?
