Our History

About Terra Essential Scents

What began as a lifetime passion and affinity for candles, natural oils, color and gemstones, led to my kitchen stove 6 years ago. I began making soy candles at first, as a hobby, to share with family and friends. I was on a quest, of sorts, wanting to channel my passions and to ensure that the candles burning in our homes were 100% pure and natural, a rare find in today’s market.

I lead a very full and busy life as a mother of four, registered nurse and co-owner of 2 small family businesses for the past 17 years, including a personal care residence for seniors and child development center. And, at the age of 39, I realized that there was something else that I was being called to do.

With the support & encouragement of my children and John, my husband and business partner, in 2008, terra essential scents was created and took on a life force of its own. It has been both a wonderful and humbling experience over the past 4 years to receive all of the positive and often times, very personal feedback from family, friends and customers.

Every aspect of product development, from creation through shipping, takes place at our studio in Allison Park, Pennsylvania, just north of Pittsburgh. We are committed to providing the highest quality, all natural products, hand-poured products at an affordable price.

In addition to the pure natural ingredients, every member of the terra team is dedicated and passionate about our products, infusing lots of positive energy into them, from preparation, to hand-pouring, through labeling, gemstone selection, packing and shipping.
