Mudita = मुदिता) means joy; especially sympathetic or vicarious joy, or the pleasure that comes from delighting in other people's well-being.
Established in 2020 by Jose Montanez 'Che Antonio', Mudita Candle Co. is a 100% handmade and hand-poured soy wax candle company based in Smyrna, GA. The candles are made in super small batches to ensure quality, right from my own home.
Every candle is made of pure 100% natural domestic soybeans, is biodegradable, and free of pesticides/ herbicides. The candles are hand-wicked with 100% cotton lead-free core wicks, contain zero toxins and are hand-mixed with essential oils and premium phthalate-free fragrance oils.
Raised in Spiritualism, I learned about the natural healing powers of herbs and natural woods to cleanse energies, and would create cleansing baths and balms for myself, close friends and family members. Throughout my life, the art of aromatherapy has helped me tremendously with calming my anxieties and mental instabilities. One Christmas, my sister gifted me a candle making workshop, and that sparked my interest in applying the connection with cleansing energies and the art of candle making. I am also a Holy Fire REIKI Practitioner, and channel the Reiki energy to all of the candles I create for the higher good of those who burn them.
I believe that a candle is so much more than a good scent, it can truly be something you light with intention that can completely transform your vibe and mood, help reduce anxiety, stress, and create lifelong memories.
My purpose is to help create happy, meaningful moments, while focusing in caring for our physical and mental well being as well as our planet; that's why we use ZERO plastic in our products and our packaging. In addition, we have partnered with One Tree Planted to plant 1 tree for every candle sold!
We take real pride in our products and want to share this experience with everyone!
