Let Your Soul Shine Candle
When Make & Mary made their signature soy candle, they only wanted to use pure essential oils and no artificial fragrances. The team also wanted to create something that helps to raise vibrations, is beautiful and reusable.
The scent is fresh and luxurious, each essence was chosen to evoke a senses of calm. Aromatic oils have been known to have a positive effect on your spirit and psyche by working in concert with the Limbic system. That’s because minuscule essential oil molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream via the lungs when inhaled. Essential oil candles burn clean. They promote relaxation, reduce anxiety, stress and even induce quality sleep.
The Make & Mary's products are custom formulated and crafted in-house with ingredients from local and regional sources that share our values. They believe that making is good for our soul and know that taking a proactive role in our own wellness enhances our lives in every form.
The Make & Mary test all of their CBD products with a third party to ensure quality, safety and purity. Their extracts are derived from Oregon-grown and harvested industrial hemp. Discover more about Make & Mary's Process and the farm we work with.
a letter from the founder
I believe in the beautiful and the functional and approach life with this in mind. For as long as I can remember, I have been a creative person with an infinity to make with my hands and embrace what nature has to offer. As a kid I was always drawing, playing music and concocting potions. As a young mother I was drawn to learn more about the plant world and became the healer of my family, much like my mother and grandmothers were.
I have been crafting folk remedies for over 20 years and raised my family on tinctures, salves and natural beauty products we made at home.
When I got a little older I followed the path of the artist and became a graphic designer. I went on to lead huge teams in the agency world, open my own studio, start a non-profit, host international design conferences and create community through public art and giving back. I have always been lead by my dreams.
Having Make & Mary has given me the opportunity to share the love I have for holistic living, creativity, and community. In 2016, I opened up my studio and started Make & Mary with our workshop series. I wanted to create a safe place to explore the world of cannabis through heritage craft making with self-care at its root.
When I started our product line in 2017, I was using CBD for low back pain and as a way to balance out my energy. I knew the power that it held. Adding it to my formulations was a natural move. With the discovery of CBD, I became even closer to the plant. For me, it addressed my growing concerns about aging and the effects it had on my skin and well being. Since then I couldn’t imagine a day without it. Plant medicine and creative self-care is a necessity, and I believe in the synergy and magic there.
I am so happy that I have an opportunity to share it with you.
Always be making! Yvonne Perez Emerson
