That's right. We don't just make candles and other treats. We’re fueled by the pursuit of world peace and fight for human rights. Our humble roots drive us everyday to solve problems we see and don’t see. From domestic abuse in our local community to sweatshops in third world countries, we believe in using our products and media channels to educate our customers about human rights issues and develop ethical solutions.
There are a lot of companies that make home, beauty and bath products. What sets us apart is our heart and our roots. We pull from hundreds of years of ancient herbal wisdom and a mastery of chemistry and herbalism to create effective holistic products for our customers who value ethical, yet luxurious experiences that have a purpose behind them. Our candles signify the love and light we inspire in the hearts of our customers. Fresh bath and beauty products are imbued with earth’s kindest energy to lift the lowest of spirits. With our customers in mind, we are passionate about crafting mindful experiences that promote beauty, wellness, and wisdom.
Helping people and growing communities everywhere is pivotal to our company’s spiritual mission. We believe wisdom is earned and not owed and that one of the best ways for people to grow is by actively participating in philanthropy and reflection within the community.
In 2016, Elderflower launched its first website and production facility in Austin, Texas. Within one month of launching, we helped remove over 200 children working in Sweatshops in Bangladesh and put them into school.
Before the rise of commercial products, our ancestors relied on nature to provide remedies. From itchy scalps to burns, our ancestors were masters of homeopathic medicine.
What we craft is inspired by these ancient ethnobotanical traditions. The term “Ethno” refers to people, culture, knowledge, and practice. We blend these sacred practices with modern day chemistry and botany to create beautiful experiences.
Unique, a co-founder and our Director of Ethnobotany, spent his childhood learning herbal medicine from a medicine woman who provided free naturopathic remedies to families residing in slum areas. He later studied social and physical sciences at The University of Central Florida where he studied genetics, organic chemistry, and biology. Our strong human-plant relationship, passion for science and love of people is what keeps our customers woven into nature.
Every product we create is carefully compounded with ethically sourced fresh ingredients and the finest absolutes, fragrance, and essential oils for a mindful experience. We are also conscious of and committed to using recycled and sustainable packaging to contribute a low carbon footprint.
