Patty - Founder of you + Me
Growing up in Revelstoke, BC I have always had a passion for creating. Wanting to know how things are created and trying new ideas. Candles have always been a love of mine but 7 years ago I was found out that a a lot of the candles that I owned were made out of petroleum and used lead wicks.
My partner was diagnosed with ALS and we eliminated all toxins from our home to help him deal with his illness. Since then I have been on the hunt for a clean burning candle. I did a lot of research with the different types of wax and choose a premium unique apricot and coconut blend.
I only use 100% cotton wicks and cosmetic-grade fine fragrance oils. The fragrances I used are all phthalate free. Each candle is made in small batches and poured by hand in Vancouver, BC.
What makes us unique?
We use a custom blend of apricot and coconut wax that is eco-friendly and clean burning, paired with lead-free wicks. All of our products are cruelty-free and vegan. Each candle is crafted by hand from start to finish in our studio in Vancouver, BC.
The unique and delicate aroma of a You + Me Candle fills the room to help you create, relax and rejuvenate.
Why we love what we do
Candles bring instant happiness. I love watching people experience our candles for the first time. Watching their expressions as a scent brings back a special memory brings me joy. Knowing that they bring that candle home and it becomes part of new family memories make my heart full.
