How you helped Toasted Bar become a reality.

We are thrilled that everyone who uses our soy wax melts and candles, knows they are getting a non-toxic and highly scented fragrance worthy of a luxurious penthouse suite.

Before I created Toasted Bar, I was obsessed with making my home smell delicious. I used candles, melts, sprays and the carpet shakey stuff. But the scent never lasted more than a few hours and I was left broke and unhappy.

Then one day, I found that I could make my own home fragrances. I could control the amount of fragrance in each melt and which wax would be the healthiest for my family without sacrificing quality.

It was then that I decided to set out to create badass soy wax melts and candles for the most adventurous souls in the world.

It turns out…..

The road was more difficult than I imagined.

While healing from an unexpected loss, I found peace in the process of hand pouring every melt. I experimented with different waxes, coloring options, fragrance oils and spent a whole lot of time coming up with edgy names for each melt. I leaned on my family for support and help… especially with the names!

Still I feared no one would love the idea of soy the way that I did.

I feared failure.

But I knew in my heart, if I kept it up, I would succeed. Through it all, we launched our first products and the response was epic.

I am so grateful to be able to create a product that not only makes your home or office smell decadent but speaks to the adventure and edge in everyone.
