Mama Moon Candles makes magic candles by mixing various aromatic oils to connect to energies and help with manifestations. The candles are 100% vegan and made with high grade essential oils.
How did you start making candles? What inspired you to create your brand?
I have always been interested in anything psychic, metaphysical, ritualistic, and wiccan ( both of my Grannies were very superstitious and psychic) and I have a very good nose for scent- I’m like a dog! Then one day at a car boot sale I found a book on scent magic- It was pure serendipity! I started mixing potions and making candles and Mama Moon was born!
How would you describe your brand philosophy?
Lighting a candle is a powerful tool for manifesting, setting intentions and creating an atmosphere with scent. The ritual of lighting a candle means that you are having a moment of being conscious of what you are asking for. Knowing what you want is the first step in getting it! Magic has made a positive impact in my life- I want to spread that vibe and make it accessible for everyone.
Where do you source your ingredients from?
I source my essential oils and fragrance oils from UK suppliers- I prefer to keep it as local as I can. I plan of moving somewhere with a garden soon and am hoping to start growing my own herbs and infusing my own oils.
Favourite thing about your job?
Knowing that I am helping people with their manifestations and positive thoughts. I have had customers tell me how the candles have uplifted their mood and made them feel good- I make the candles with so much love- It makes me massively buzz to think that I am helping to spread positive vibrations..Also the creativity, its not gonna stop at candles- Watch this space!
If you had to use only one candle from your range, what would it be?
It would be my Moon Ritual Candle, which is Sandalwood- A good all rounder for all spell work, and I love the earthy smell of sandalwood- Its so comforting, whenever I burn it the smell always gets in my hair and I find myself sniffing my hair throughout the day! Also, Sandalwood always reminds me of India- My favourite place in the world!
What is your most treasured wellness secret?
When you are happy and positive on the inside- IT MAKES YOU GLOW ON THE OUTSIDE! .. And Shungite Crystal’s in water- I drink it and douse everything in it!
What is your approach to nutrition? How do you keep healthy?
I’m lucky – I was brought up on a very healthy Mediterranean diet, Everything is always cooked fresh- no processed food. My mum is an amazing cook and luckily I have inherited this from her. I always cook a fresh dinner- Its never a chore and a total pleasure to cook, it helps me unwind… Occasionally I eat bad stuff and drink fizzy drinks- But I never beat myself up about it- I think its fine if everything is done in moderation.
Fave kitchen staple:
Lemons- I squeeze lemon juice on everything (I think its the Cypriot in me!)
Can’t live without :
My cat Dandy- he is a Bengal Snow Leopard, I adopted him 6 years ago, I think we might have been friends in a past life. He brings me endless joy.
Your healthiest passion:
Practising gratitude meditations every morning. I have the best friends anyone could ask for, I am grateful for the abundance of love they have for me and that I have for them every day.
What do you do to relax?
I indulge myself in my guilty pleasure of watching The Real Housewives ( I don’t have a favourite city- I’m a fan of the whole franchise!!!)
Your current mantra:
When you focus on the good the good gets better.. and anything else Abraham Hicks has to say- I love her!
