A Message From Our Founder:
Happy Thoughts Candle Co. was brought upon by things I went through and am continually learning to work through which is an ongoing process. I know how it feels to have anxiety and depression among other conditions, so I wanted to create something for people that has really helped me. Candles have always taken me to a happy place and a place of comfort. It helps to clear my thoughts, center, and ground me, so I am able to have Happy Thoughts. Therefore, I decided to share them with you. I truly hope you find your own Happy Thoughts while enjoying my candles.
