Lighting candles during the pandemic prompted a Dixmont couple to start a business


When Laura Simonds and Christopher Hathaway of Dixmont found themselves lighting a large number of candles while working from home during the COVID-19 pandemic, they realized it might be cheaper to make their own. So they did and turned it into a brand that is on the cusp of her first birthday.

“During the pandemic, we, along with the rest of the world, were very stressed and there were a lot of unknowns,” Hathaway said.

The couple found that lighting scented candles during the day helped make their home a more peaceful place in an uncertain and scary time. That costly habit grew into an idea for a business focused on “making people comfortable in an uncomfortable moment,” Hathaway said.
