Wishing to bring their favorite aspects of the outdoors home, they created candles that evoked memories of nature. All their home fragrance products are 100% natural and crafted by hand, including candles in concrete vessels, wax melts, Palo Santo incense, and Palo Santo smudge bowls. Another bonus? Lifebloom’s vessels can be repurposed as planters and home decor items after the burn.
