WHO ARE WE?
BLACK, QUEER, + WOMAN-OWNED
My name is Lacie and I am the owner of Milky Candles. I created my business in hopes of inspiring others to take control of their own mental and physical space.
As a teenager, I began my own candle-making journey as a way of creating a comfortable atmosphere in my bedroom. During most of my childhood, I was able to rearrange, paint, and control my own bedroom. However, after foreclosure, I was unable to transform my new space as much since we were now renting. Having the ability to control the scent was one of the only ways that allowed me to find peace.
After a decade of crafting candles for my close friends and family, and with enough persuasion from my Mom + girlfriend, I decided that sharing this experience with others with high quality materials was my next move. Thus, Milky Candles was launched March 2021 and I've been ecstatic about my growth personally and professionally.
