Inspired by the beauty of the Pacific Northwest, PACIFISCENCE offers exquisite, handcrafted candles created with a proprietary, "in-house" blend of the purest and cleanest-burning waxes - coconut wax and beeswax. Coconut wax, a renewable wax derived from cold-pressed coconut, requires blending with a harder wax when used in candle-making. PACIFISCENCE'S custom blend combines locally sourced beeswax with coconut wax and is free of non-sustainable petroleum waxes (paraffin, mineral wax) and soy wax. With over 95% of candles in the US containing paraffin or soy, PACIFISCENCE provides discerning candle connoisseurs with a rare, natural alternative.
PACIFISCENCE was founded in 2017 by Megan Ajax, the owner and artisan at PACIFISCENCE. Megan uses her background as a lifelong Washingtonian and pharmacist to create essential oil blends with elegant scents reflecting the unique wonders and lifestyle aspects in the Pacific Northwest. Each candle reflects a sense or the scents associated with Megan's favorite memories. For example, annual trips to Olympic National Park (Olympic Rain - fern frond and violet), her grandmother's fragrant garden filled with plum trees (Palouse Plum - plum and cranberry), the crisp scent of fall at her former home in Wenatchee when the apple orchards begin to frost (Frosted Apple Orchard - apple & cinnamon), the vibrant flowers and aromatic spices at Pike Place Market (Pike Place Afternoon - rosemary & lavender).
Locally sourced ingredients are incorporated whenever possible including their beeswax and their lavender and cranberry essential oils that are produced in Washington. All candles are free of dyes and additives to ensure purity. Packaging and labeling is designed by Megan, is fully recyclable, and produced in Washington and Oregon by local, family-owned businesses. A minimalist aesthetic reflects PACIFISCENCE'S focus on the purity of their ingredients and a commitment to local, sustainable sourcing.
Whether used to relax, celebrate, reflect or inspire, PACIFISCENCE candles create the magical ambiance that makes candles one of life's best little treasures! Enjoy hours of clean-burning, aromatic bliss with these one-of-kind candles!
