Creative Energy Candles began almost 10 years ago, right on top of Kara's stove, about the same time the marketing firm she had been working for decided to close its doors. She was always fascinated with the candles wax, and thought how amazing it would be if she could create a candle that's wax was beneficial for your skin. After researching the best natural ingredients, she developed a unique recipe featuring 100% soybean wax, organic extra virgin coconut oil and essential oil blends. Kara took her candle and hit the road selling high end boutiques and day spas around the Southeast. Her big (little) break- as she likes to say-came when her candle landed in the hands of Marlo Thomas, actress and philanthropist. Marlo promoted the Creative Energy Candle as "Her Favorite Candle' on the front page of AOL for Valentines Day. After that, Kara never looked back!
