OUR STORY

Minot grew out of a love affair with Europe. During my travels, I soaked up all the deliciousness, ate all the pasta, and drank all the wine. I expected to feel worse for this indulgence, but instead, I felt better; lighter and more energized. This paradox led me down a path toward understanding the impact of chemicals in our food and lifestyle products and drove me to embrace a low-tox lifestyle.

For me, candles have always been associated with calm, warmth, and welcome. The flickering light, the crackling wick. And of course, the scent. As my husband and I settled into our home on the South Shore of Massachusetts, I found myself searching for non-toxic versions of the candles I loved. Distrusting mainstream products, I constantly checked ingredient lists only to find many instances of greenwashing.

The truly non-toxic candles I did find had scents that lacked complexity. Determined to find a more layered alternative, I taught myself to blend oils and make my own candles. It was a little like creating scent poetry. When I gifted them to family and friends and saw the delight they brought, the Minot journey began to unfold.

WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO

Most candles on the market are equated with secondhand smoke in your home. Mind-blowing, right? Here’s what I was trying to avoid:

THEIRS OURS
Wicks contain lead, which can lead to lead poisoning, and zinc which can irritate your lungs Made with a 100% cotton wick, free of lead and zinc
Scented with artificial fragrances which are known hormone disruptors Scented with plant-based oils only
Made with a petroleum based paraffin wax, releasing known carcinogens when burnt Soy based wax
