"I love my brand. I love what it stands for. I love that others believe in and can relate to it. My dream for MYND is to continue to show people that mindfulness and self care can be incorporated into our everyday lives as simple tools to help overcome feelings of stress, dread, and worry that can come from mental health symptoms."
MYND (May You Never Despair) is a brand that developed from my own personal experiences battling mental health symptoms. In my college years I was formally diagnosed with anxiety, depression, and OCD. After that, I chose to live my life more intentionally to help with my healing & coping journey.
I started making candles as a hobby and a mindful activity. Candle making is an art that has been around for centuries. It is a very intricate process that requires attention to detail and patience. The act of blending & pouring is very soothing to me and I enter a very positive headspace when I am creating. Once I began to share my creations with family and friends I took their positive reactions as a sign to begin creating for my community.
