Have you ever walked into a room and felt like a new person? Or caught the scent of something that reminded you of better days? Maybe just light a candle because you wanted comfort? I know I have. I've been fascinated by this mood-changing effect of candles for as long as I can remember. I didn't realize it, but I also answered my own question - why I was fond of pleasant scents of candles. Every time I lit a candle, I was staving off my depression.


Candles were like a warm hug when no one was around; transport to a better place with a better state of mind. Scented candles just got me. As my mind raced with this welcome news, a thought crept in – what about those who have no comfort? No warm hugs, relief, or a friendly ear to pour their worries into. These are the people who take their lives before their time, and I couldn't stand to think that thought any longer.


So, I decided to share my comfort. I may not have enough ears, hugs, words, or sweet sayings to save everyone – but I can try. Through the power of therapeutic scented candles and soothing oils, I will do my very best to uplift those who need it most. And that’s how “Depress Me Not Candles” was born—my own way of giving back through the heart-warming vibes that a simple sweet smell can bring.

Amazing product!

"On this gloomy wet windy day in Lake Forest Park in my home, I am enjoying your candle, and knitting. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your candle. Nose in a book, Black amber and Lavender scent is the best on a day like today. The lovely floral decoration inside the candle is a nice touch, reminding me of my beautiful Pacific Northwest nature and setting. I love having it lit as a reading companion as well. Thank you for this beautiful product!."

Thank You!

"I have always loved candles, but @depress_me_not_candles has made me love them even more with this cashmere plum Cry Your Heart Out candle (a gentle reminder that it's okay to release any emotions you need to). It smells incredible and was almost too darn pretty to burn!

This is why I do what I do

"A visit to your booth was like therapy in itself. The messages on your candles are words more of us need to listen and repeat..and to remind ourselves of regularly. I had tears in my eyes when I walked away because your passion and desire not only as a small business owner...but as a woman, a wife, a mother, a community member--your purpose in life to continue to deliver that messaging touches my soul in ways so needed (And the candles smell incredible to boot). Keep doing what you not stop. Thank you for being you"
