When we shine our own light we encourage others to do the same, but what happens when we don’t know how to bask in our own light?

Ignite Your Peace was created to compel your inner light to go from a dim flicker to a full force of purpose! Imagine a calamity of external events affecting your internal peace, who has time for that?! That’s what happened to me as I watched my personal and professional life spin out of control—I had to sage that shit! 

I realized that the same energy that extinguished my light could be a catalyst to empower my light. So, I decided to navigate through the painful fumes by creating scents to portray positive affirmations that I desired to embody. The ultimate inspiration that catapulted the birth of IYP was the lack of self-care that my tribe expressed. I decided to create a sensational, aroma filled environment that would encourage them on their journey to tranquility. Queen, you wear a cape 25 hours a day, rescuing everyone but yourself, and sis, that ‘ish can’t fly! 

As I hand-craft each candle, enjoy the patience during the process, and send my personal touch of peace to you all, I am reminded of the vibrant shining that exists in each of us. IYP allows you to awaken your light while you meditate on essential values that yield a prosperous and abundant life. Each time this happens, a bit of my own peace is ignited. So, thank you!
