My name is Diana and I am a candle addict. I cannot even count the amount of times my mother yelled at me for burning candles, staining ceilings and curtains with black smoke and soot. I thought to myself, “…black smoke? That definitely can’t be good for your lungs!” I started doing research and with a lot of patience and practice, Brighter Days was born. I am a one woman show, but I have to give my husband credit for letting me turn our home into a candle factory. I pick the candle names, design the labels, and mix the fragrances. I do it all! Having my own business has always been my dream.
Brighter Days Co. candles are handmade and poured locally in New Jersey with 100% natural soy wax and fragrance oils, free of harsh chemicals. The wick is actually a piece of wood! It’s made of an organic native cherry wood and it crackles when it's lit (like having a mini fireplace)! They are vegan and non-toxic and guaranteed to brighten your day!
My future goal is to partner with small local vendors and businesses to open up a storefront! I want to be able to have my own creative space where I can find inspiration, host workshops and events, meet one-on-one with customers, collaborate, and build my business. I am excited to work with Marketspace Vendor Events, meet new faces and expand my hand-poured candle business all over New Jersey!
Brighter Days will be these upcoming events!
