espérer sisters started with an idea to make luxe scented candles that give back. Two sisters, Bobbi & Kathy, decided to give back to groups that advocate for those with mental health conditions since our father has schizophrenia. Currently, we donate a portion of each candle purchased to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. To learn more about their programs or get support, visit www.NAMI.org.
Each candle is hand poured in either Milwaukee, Wisconsin or Minneapolis, Minnesota. No giant corporation here. :)
We source ALL ingredients from the U.S. to share the love:
Boxes: Each time we purchase boxes, a tree gets planted! We are excited to support other businesses that also give back. The company also tries to purchase recycled materials when possible.
Wax - Our wax is produced from soybeans grown here in America. Soy wax is a plant based wax that is renewable, clean-burning, biodegradable, and free from animal-derived ingredients.
Fragrances/Wicks - We support a locally owned Midwestern fragrance and candle company. This company also carries a dye that gives back to endangered butterfly habitats.
Jars - Our jars are purchased from a company that has their manufacturing in the U.S.
Bags - The bags we use at events come from a regional business that is family-owned and operated.
