When life got crazy,
I lit candles
We all know what it’s like to get caught up with the fast pace of work, news, and life. Sometimes, to the point where we lose sight of ourselves: how we feel and what we desire.
So we’re on a mission to create mindful sensory experiences that connect *you* with all parts of you—starting with a Spoken Flames sensory candle.
Hi! I’m Shavaun. Founder at Spoken Flames.
In 2016, my entrepreneurial endeavors as a digital creative took its toll on my wellness.
Client demands, deadlines, and the self-imposed pressure to outperform the previous year (chronic overachiever here) made life more chaotic 😰
To help combat that overwhelming work stress, I turned to candles. Lighting a candle cued rest.
But at the time, there was something missing.
Many of the candles I found 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, inspiring, and personal experience.
Our mission at Spoken Flames is to help encourage a mindful reconnection with yourself through your senses.
🔥 Hear a soft, calming crackle from our dual wooden wicks.
🤩 See a unique golden shimmer in our signature candle wax blend—it’s been described as ”hypnotic.”
🌿 Smell custom scents masterfully created by our expert perfumers.
🕯️ Feel affirmed by each candle message, which 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.
