After discovering her cancer had returned, founder Diana Mendoza lit candles to give herself hope, courage, and strength. That’s why Never Alone Candles are beautifully packaged with customized messages created to uplift and inspire you.
Whether you need confidence to claim what’s yours or a restful night to soothe your soul, you’ll find a candle to match your intention – because we believe no matter what challenges you face, you can always be relit.
Any candle can smell good, but it doesn’t mean it’s good for you. Unlike those old, expired paraffin candles found in discount department stores, Never Alone Candles® are handmade by a human and sourced from natural products 100% in the USA.
Plus, our phthalate-free scents burn longer and stronger (each candle burns a minimum of 40-hours) without giving you a headache.
Every new candle we mix starts with the question, “How do I want to feel when I smell this?”
We prioritize creating an experience that truly uplifts your senses. No two scents are similar: each is handcrafted to make you feel blessed and inspired…
…from “New Day,” our perfect morning wake-up candle…
…to “Calm,” the candle that brings back memories of the vacation where you finally felt like you could breathe again.
You won’t find ANY harmful ingredients (like paraffin or hormone-disrupting phthalates) in our candles. Naturally scented for burn-time longevity, but won’t overwhelm your senses.
Ever bought a candle that came in a dirty jar? Never again! EVERY single jar is washed by hand before being filled with coconut wax and lovingly placed in a durable box or tube that protects the glass during shipment.
Aesthetically pleasing, minimalist white jars with cream-colored labels fit beautifully into any home, making it a thoughtful gift guaranteed to make the recipient feel pampered & loved.
I didn’t set out to launch a candle company.
After 13 years in remission, my cancer returned in 2018–I found out a week before my 40th birthday.
Each night, I’d write a prayer on a small piece of paper, and tuck it under the base of a candle, with the belief that the Universe would hear my prayer and bless my life.
Lighting those candles gave me comfort and peace during some of my darkest hours. Even though so much of my future felt uncertain, the flame helped me come back to what was important, and reminded me that there is truly a light at the end of the tunnel.
It was in 2020 – at the beginning of the pandemic – that I had the idea of a candle company. Three weeks into the pandemic I had to get a CT scan to ensure that I was still in remission, and when I lit my candle that morning, I knew that whatever the result would be, I would have the courage and comfort to get through it.
I realized I’d found my calling – that I was put on this earth to create candles that bring hope to others, that empower people, that remind someone of who they really are.
And – armed with a certificate in organic skincare formulation – I was determined to make candles that uplifted people’s senses with beautiful aromas… without any harmful chemicals.
Today I pour and pack every single Never Alone Candle by hand to ensure you’re burning the highest quality all-natural candle available. No matter how much this company grows, the candles will always come from human hands because when I ship you a candle, I ship you a part of my heart, too.
After a long day at work or caregiving, I believe you deserve a self-care ritual that takes you to a place that feels like cozy heaven. And you deserve to know that no matter what challenges you face in life, you aren’t alone. You can always be relit.
