Great Scented Candles! Signature Fragrances! Great candle Gifts!
During the start of COVID-19, my husband and son had games to play to occupy their time after work and school. My teenage daughter spent most of the time in her room on the phone with friends. With no outlet in sight; I felt my anxiety climbing and starting to get the best of me. I needed something to pass time after working hours. My husband suggested our daughter start a candle business. She wasn't interested. I jumped on the idea; I love candles. I ordered a random starter kit. My first Lavender candle was so strong, we had to open windows, turn on fans and leave the area! That was an epic fail. I left the candle making idea alone, thinking it wasn't for me!
About two weeks later, I received a mid-day phone call that changed my life. A family member called to say the Paramedics were at my fathers home working on him. I called his wife to get an update. The tone of her voice, I knew the outcome but needed to hear her say it. Your father is gone, he passed. I felt like my heart skipped a beat. The death of a parent is something you are never ready for. A piece of me died that day. Later that same day, I received another call that was to bring happiness; I had completed my Master's program. It was bittersweet. I didn't know what to do with all of the emotions I was feeling, so I decided to make another candle. I found peace and comfort in doing so. I made a "Clean Linen" candle for my father that night and it turned out perfect! It was that moment I knew I had to keep going. Making handcrafted candles "make sense", it helped with the pain, anger, and sadness I felt.
As for the name "'Sen-yah", I had to come up with a name that meant something to our family. The name Haynes means (Thankful), reverse is Senyah means (New Start), learning to go on without loved ones. It is a New Start within itself.
