One of the best parts of my job is getting to interact with local businesses and share in the excitement about their company, product, mission, and goals. In a city like Dallas where there is so much hustle and bustle, it is easy to forget that this city is also a city of creatives. Of talent, of artists, of small businesses and people who aren’t afraid to dream big. Supporting our local makers is a huge part of the success of this great place that we call home so I’m doing my part to share local finds that I find exceptional!
Family owned and operated in McKinney, TX, Gratus Candles has one mission at its core, to remind its consumers to take a moment to pause and be grateful for what they have. As mentioned on their website, Gratus Candles wants “to be that simple daily reminder to be grateful for the things, people and moments that you have in your life”.
Gratus Candles are all hand-poured utilizing soy wax so the burn time is extended by 30-50%! They are also hypoallergenic, soot-free and biodegradable. Do you know what that means? It means that my obsession is healthy. Duh.
As I sit here and write this, I have the Sea Salt X Orchid scent burning bright but with over twenty scents, there is something that will be the perfect fit for your home, I have no doubt.
