Tell us about yourself
MoonAmor Candle Co is the brainchild of my obsession with the Moon and all things about Celestial, Astrological, and Spiritual realms and, of course... I'm sure you all agree with the love of luxurious, aromatic candles!
Being Latina of Puerto Rican/Armenian descent, who is genuinely proud of starting my own, Women Owned Business and being a Boss Lady with strong spiritual roots and believing that all things are possible with my profound faith in God, my beloved Angels and Spirit Guides, and of course, the Divine power of the Universe.
MIRACLES are NORMAL. Just BELIEVE! The artistic fusion begins once the candle brew is magically synthesized and Intertwined with the most luxurious Coco Apricot Crème wax and the heavenly essences of only the finest, great fragrance oils.
Depending on the phase of the Moon, the day the candles are created determines what the batch represents. While stirring, only the most positive intentions and special blessings are cast for what the candles are meant to represent: Good Fortune, Abundance, Peace, Clarity, Protection, Love, Harmony, Blessings, Success, and Positive Vibes… and sent out to the Universe for you to receive from and with all my heart and soul...
