Our Story

Who We Are

Wax Happening is a socially and environmentally conscious company that produces hand poured, clean burning, soy candles.  We produce high quality candles that won’t release toxins into the air and will promote peace and beauty into your environment.  Our candles are designed to spread light and love with a portion of all proceeds going towards helping women to overcome adversity and tragedy.  Every purchase made spreads light by providing resources and/or employment; helping women in need to recover with dignity.

Why We Got Started

Our mission is to create beautiful and safe products while supporting women around the globe who are in need.  We are committed to helping women because we understand the ripple effect of empowering and supporting them during adversity.  According to the USAID, programs that provide women opportunities to better their health, education and wellbeing have effects far beyond a single individual.  A woman multiplies the impact of an investment made in her future by extending benefits to the world around her, creating a better life for her family and building a strong community.
