Bal Candles, LLC was founded in 2020 in Atlanta, GA. The company was created after combining a hobby with a need that I was beginning to recognize within my self and others around me. I was beginning to see how much my mental health and wellness was being neglected and negatively impacted after a series of life events. I found myself in a space of hopelessness, uncertainty, and depression; one where I was completely disconnected from the person I knew I was on the inside.
One of the things I noticed at the time is I would spend so much money buying candles. I would always buy candles just to find the time to light them and find stillness in my mind. It was my way of creating peace and a sense of comfort in my home. Lighting the candles would remind me of my favorite memories--whether is was a favorite food, favorite familiar smell, or favorite place to travel. Once I realized how much I was using candles to help me through my mental needs, the idea of starting a business was planted in my mind.
I made a commitment to myself that I would stop spending so much money buying candles. Instead, I would have to learn how to create them. I also had a desire to find a way to inspire people to help them through their darkest times and inspire them to make a positive impact in someone else's life. I knew how important candles had been for me finding my peace of mind, and I wanted to find a way to share that with others.
