SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA-BASED CANDLE LINE, MALIBU APOTHECARY, OFFERS A CLEAN TAKE ON AFFORDABLE LUXURY.

February 02, 2020

Malibu Apothecary creates clean, non-toxic candles hand-poured with coconut & soy wax and essential oil-infused fragrances. They are inspired by beaches traveled from Malibu to Montauk and the Caymans to Cap-d'Ail, aiming to capture the essence of exotic locales to tell a story through fragrance. Malibu Apothecary started as a love for travel, wellness, and everything luxury. This passion for travel led their founder, Claire Ellis, as a young woman all around the globe; from months spent on the Côte d'Azur, to picking tea leaves in Kenya, and a solo trip around Asia, no beach should be left unexplored. Aiming to capture the spirit of the people and stories of the places traveled through fragrance, Claire started pouring candles as a hobby in her SoCal apartment. She discovered the toxicity and unethical standards in the candle industry. Ultimately, graduating from what would be more than a few small spills, stained wood floors, and a lost rent deposit, Malibu Apothecary today is a reflection of a passion for clean, non-toxic living and a thirst for the undiscovered that inspired its founder in her travels and creations. Malibu Apothecary uses clean-burning coconut and soy wax with essential oil-infused fragrances that are sustainably sourced. Their small batch quantities allow each candle to be made with love and careful attention to detail.



"If scent is the strongest trigger of memory, why not remember a beach vacation?"

-Claire Ellis, Founder of Malibu Apothecary

 

What truly makes Malibu Apothecary different, apart from their ability to transport you to luxurious beaches far away, is their fresh approach not only to the aesthetic and aroma but to their ingredients. Most candle brands today use paraffin, a petroleum by-product found at the bottom of oil barrels in the form of black sludge, from crude oil. This wax is bleached white using a 10x concentration of our household bleach. Carcinogenic chemicals,known to cause health problems, release when this wax is burnedand leaveus breathingin these toxins. Malibu Apothecary believes in a better way to enjoy not only candles but life. They strive to create luxury products that promote a cleaner Earth and lifestyle.



"In college, I was burning candles that were $80 apiece, and when I realized it wasn’t affordable or sustainable,I started to make my own. Exploring the craft of candlemaking led me to see the truly toxic nature what we pay sums of money to essentially poison ourselves with. I knew there had to be a better way to enjoy the luxury of fine fragrance, and that was by creating a cleaner alternative that had travel and wellness at its heart. As a young person in a big city, our living spaces and budgets are shrinking, narrowing our ability to decorate. Candles are a great attainable way to transform your living area into a luxury sanctuary."

-Claire Ellis, Founder of Malibu Apothecary
