About Paper Flame
Sustainability is a core value of mine, and I wanted my brand to reflect that. When I started out making candles for myself, it seemed like a waste to throw away the jars once I finished a candle. I ended up hoarding boxes of empty jars. Instead of buying new candles, I refilled these jars and experimented with different fragrances. The local community in Indianapolis started donating jars to me that they had collected – and soon enough I was inundated with empty jars! And that’s how The Paper Flame was born.
As I have scaled the business, not all of the jars are re-used or upcycled. My favorite jars to use are the Oui yogurt jars because they are uniform and adorable. Some jars are from other candlemakers that are retiring, overstocked or just didn’t need them anymore. A lot of my equipment is also handed down to me from other candlemakers! I am also quite proud that most of the furniture in my house is secondhand 🙂
Besides thrifting and candlemaking, I enjoy spending my free time making kombucha, practicing Muay Thai and traveling. Ask me about Couchsurfing!
