We're Sherah + Shelby, the husband and wife team behind Misiyo. In early 2019, we decided to take our love of candles and our heart for Rwanda and make something of it!
We started from scratch using beeswax almost by chance. The more we discovered about the benefits, the more we were determined to make our candles with it! After six months of trial and error (soooo many mason jar testers!) we developed our own wax blend for a luxurious, clean and eco-conscious burn.
Our candles are made with this blend of local beeswax and pure coconut wax, scented with either pure essential oil blends or fine fragrance oils and poured into reusable jars & tins at our country home studio just outside Edmonton, Alberta
Misiyo translates to 'mission' because every candle we make has a mission to help someone and do good in the world. We've seen how marketplace solutions help empower others while bringing beautiful goods to you too!
