When life got crazy,
I lit candles
My obsession with candles started five years ago. It’s when my entrepreneurial endeavors as a digital creative director ramped up: client demands, deadlines, and self-imposed pressure to outperform the previous year (chronic overachiever here) made life more chaotic.
“Candles became an important part of my self-care routine”

...to help combat that overwhelming work stress. Lighting a candle cued rest & downtime, and would give me something to look forward to after a long day.
But at the time, there was something missing.
Many of the candles I found on the market smelled nice, but nothing more. I also noticed that the packaging of every candle I bought worked hard to promote a brand logo or scent name, boldly plastered on the front labels. Something about this felt self-serving, passive, and impersonal.
Those candles just didn’t speak to me.
So, I started Spoken Flames to meet an unmet need, reimagining candles as a more immersive and personal experience.
In a noisy & chaotic world, I’m on a mission to curate experiences that connect *you* with all parts of you—starting with a multisensory Spoken Flames candle.
We all know what it’s like to get caught up with the pace of work/news/life. Sometimes to the point we lose sight of ourselves: how we feel, what we desire. So it was important to me to create an experience that encouraged re-connection with self, and in this case through your senses.
Each Spoken Flames candle offers a multisensory experience that engages your senses of sound, sight, smell, and mind. Hear a soft-crackle from our wooden wicks. See a golden shimmer in our signature candle wax blend. Smell our clean & curated scents. Feel affirmed by each candle message—which even comes to life via augmented reality (AR).
I hope the moment you light a Spoken Flames candle you can unplug from the world, and tune into yourself.
A candle experience made for you.
A Spoken Flames candle encourages a purposeful, motivating and meaningful ambiance in your space. Each candle has a message that serves YOU. Not my brand. Not my scents. Just affirming messages carefully curated to inspire, celebrate and motivate you!—all the parts of you.
Spoken Flames exists to amplify messages that matter & motivate you. It’s about manifesting the life you envision for yourself and the world. It’s about igniting your actions to achieve your desires. 🔥
