What Inspired Be You Candles?

Be You Candles, came about when candle-lover Shemeka Wright made her love of candles official. For as long as she can remember, she’s always treated herself to a candle during grocery runs. And one evening when she was sitting on her balcony with a glass of wine, she lit a candle and became curious about whether she could make her own candles, which prompted her to try it.

She started out making candles for herself, then making and shipping them to family and friends. She remixed her kitchen, turning half of it into her candle lab to test different colors, wicks, jars and fragrances while seeking to create something truly vibrant and reflective of her energetic personality. Before she knew it, Shemeka had her special recipe, had totally fallen in love with candle-making in the process and it grew into a full business.

Now, three years later, Be You Candles has expanded to BYC Home Décor which was completely inspired by her vibrant design of her living room. In this space, Shemeka's Zen is achieved and creativity blossoms.
