OUR STORY


Hi, I'm Kristin

Daydream believer, 

Mama to three guinea pigs + three girls Claire , Victoria , + Scarlett Jane

ALWAYS buys Turkish Delight at TJ MAXX + HOMEGOODS because

I love the Lion Witch and the Wardrobe along with ROSE fragrance and flavor

my middle daughter being named Victoria Rose ; )

Cape Jasmine is another name for the Gardenia flower which I discovered through my grandmother who shared her love of gardening with me growing up.  She didn't keep many houseplants but in my Grandfathers "home office" window was always the most perfect gardenia with a fragrance that naturally filled the room.  I love the concept that scents are linked with memory and moments and I began candle making through the COVID Pandemic in my home basement as a way to keep peace and joy in my home.  I founded Cape Jasmine with the encouragement of my incredible husband and best friend Ryan who helped make this dream possible.  I light candles with intentions as taught by my very Catholic upbringing and I light them to be present in the moment. I try to link my candles as I make them to an intention or a moment in time and space and have found that a small light does dispel the darkness.

 

 

 

 

What Defines CAPE JASMINE WAX COMPANY?

You can buy any candle made in bulk batches - What is distinct about Cape Jasmine is my triple pour signature candle making method.  All of our candles are hand poured soy wax made over a time period of at the very least one day long because I allow each layer to set and the wax to solidify before I make my next pour.  Some of my candles are multiple fragrance and some are multiple colors but I think it enhances the slow burn to halfway through see the color of the wax change or to notice a subtle difference as you enjoy our candles over time.  I was inspired by my three daughters to create three layers - as they say in Monty Python Search for the Holy Grail "Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be Three!"
