I'm Schare', the creator/owner of the Boldtanical brand. I've spent a lot of time over this last year finding peace in methodical testing and the soothing sounds of crackling wicks. I have taken my time making my own candle vessels and formulating fragrances. From testing, to design, to production - nothing about this line has been an afterthought.
I spent a lot of years on autopilot. I worked way too many hours each week in a soul sucking corporate position. You know the one...where you survive soley off caffeine and snacks, forget what the gym looks like and some days debate on whether or not you even have time to shower because you have so much to do. You lose track of friends and family because you just never seem to have time.
As I entered my 40's, my health began to take a toll and my body was screaming for me to slow down. I started making wax melts in 2021 as gifts for family and friends as a way to try to reconnect. Giving little gifts to make people smile has always been a love language for me.
I ended up reconnecting with myself. The hours I've spent in my little workshop listening to Dirty Heads radio on Pandora grounded me back into a good place in my life. It has slowed me down and reminded me to just enjoy life's simple pleasures and embrace the little things that give us joy.
During these last few years of uncertainty, it has never been more important to focus on the things that feed our soul; like the scent of a beautiful memory, hanging out with friends and family, gifting and sharing experiences and moments, or even simply snuggling up with a good book and a cup of hot tea for a little "me time".
Scents are adventures. They remind us of places we've been or want to go. They evoke memories, bring smiles to our faces, and help calm chaotic days.
I'm truly grateful for every one of my customers. You've helped me transform this little idea in my head into this small business that I'm very passionate about. I'm so happy to share it with you all! Your enjoyment is the completion of this creative process for me.
