The face behind the brand
I am Jennifer, the owner of Scent + Sprout. I am originally from Melbourne, Australia but moved to New York City in October, 2019. In February 2020, I signed up to a candle making class that was scheduled for March. Of course, the pandemic had other plans, and the class was cancelled. I didn't want that to stop me, so I decided to teach myself. With an endless amount of videos, google searching and online forums, I was finally ready to start testing out candle making. I soon realized, how much testing goes into candle making, from finding the right wax, wick and fragrances. But, I loved everything about it and thats when I decided to open Scent + Sprout.
WHAT I CAME ACROSS DURING MY RESEARCH AND
WHY I CHOSE TO MAKE MY OWN CANDLES
While I was researching, I was shocked at the amount of toxic ingredients that go into making candles. I wanted to create my own product, where I could ensure they were clean and toxic free. Especially because it is somerthing that I burn daily in my home.
All Scent + Sprout candles are made using 100% natural soy wax, lead free wicks made out of cotton and phthalate free fragrances. They are all made in small batches in my apartment in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and all candles are labelled by hand, by me!
