WHO WE ARE:
Yo Soy Candle is a handmade affirmation candle company based in Portland, Oregon, owned and operated by Leslie Abrams.
ABOUT OUR CANDLES:
Each unique scent is paired with an empowering “I AM” statement to inspire positivity and personal growth for all who may come across it. Made from 100% soy wax, lead free wicks and intoxicating blends of phthalate-free fragrance and essential oils, our candles provide a clean, eco-friendly burn. And everything is produced and grown in the U.S.
Yo Soy Candle was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 2012 and Portland, Oregon is our home. In 2010, Leslie decided to quit her full-time job and immediately left for Costa Rica to study to be a yoga instructor in the jungle! After she returned from this life altering experience Leslie was looking for a meaningful way to show her gratitude to family and friends for supporting her through some BIG life changes. She decided to explore candlemaking, and they were such a success that everyone asked for more!
INSPIRATION BEHIND YO SOY:
“Yo Soy,” a Spanish phrase meaning I AM” are two empowering words that can help shape your reality. Along Leslie’s journey as a yoga student and teacher, she realized the power and importance of setting an intention at the beginning of each day. Adding affirmations to the candles is just a natural extension of Leslie’s personality and life. She believes that we all get to choose our attitudes and perception of life every day, and affirmations can be that helpful tool to steer us in a positive direction.
HOW TO USE YOUR "I AM":
While you are experiencing the ambiance and aroma of your candle, allow yourself some time to focus on your I AM – breathing in and breathing out. Repeat.
