Brooklyn Candle Studio’s candles are the closest thing to perfect that we’re willing to set on fire. Their design is gorgeous and minimalist, their scents are rich with memory, and their ingredients are American-grown and eco-friendly.  Each 100% vegan candle is made from American-grown soybeans, led free cotton wicks, and a blend of essential oils and phthalate-free perfume oils. They each hold 60 hours of burn life, which translates into some major relaxation time.

After the horrible events led by hate groups in Charlottesville in August 2017, founder and designer Tamara Mayne decided to donate 10% of every Love Potion #9 candle to the ACLU in an effort to support the legal fight for equality.  She notes she was called to share profits with the ACLU “as a woman, a mother, an Asian-American, as an employer of women and minorities, and, frankly, as a human being”.  We must have fallen under the Love Potion spell, because we love these candles as much as we love this cause.
