Hi and Welcome, my name is Genesis. I’m the Founder + CEO here at Sól & Flóra. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been obsessed with candles. My mother was a single mother of two, which for us meant we didn’t have a lot of money. At our house, buying candles was our “treat yo self” moment. It was our way of transforming our humble little Brooklyn apartment into something that felt grand and sophisticated. Fast forward 20 years and your girl (AKA me) is still obsessed with candles.
Through the years, my candle obsession graduated from standard to big name luxury candles, but managing to find an environmentally responsible, affordable candle that I could burn regularly seemed to be my biggest challenge. Finally, I decided enough was enough and I started crafting my own candles. I wanted candles that were ethically made, with natural ingredients I knew and trusted.
And that’s when Sól & Flóra was born.
Sól and Flóra candles, provide an unforgettable fragrant environment that elevates your home. We are the luxury self care habit, you can afford to have.
Sól & Flóra is a Latinx/Hispanic, owned & operated candle company in which we take great pride in. We are inspired by our cultura and are especially inspired by all the amazing women in it. We believe that our rich culture should be celebrated and we do just that through our candles.
We tested different waxes, fragrances and wicks for months in order to make sure we created the best candle experience for you. Our candles are made using a renewable, luxurious coconut-apricot wax blend, essential oils, and phthalates free fragrances.
Love Your Mother…Earth That is.
Here at Sól & Flóra we love our mother earth. We designed our candles with her in mind. Everything from the wick, to the packing is both biodegradable and/or recyclable. Our candles were designed to be reused and repurposed. Once you’ve burned your candle, use the jar as a drinking glass, make-up brush holder, vase, or what ever your little corazón desires.
