I’m Elise, founder and former owner of Baja Girl Jewelry & Candles. I live in Temecula with my husband, our dog Solo, and our twin boys Summit Wesley and Maverick Wade. When our boys were born in early 2021, we went through a life changing experience. I developed a condition called preeclampsia during pregnancy, and the best option was to get the boys out via an emergency c-section two months early. They were born at 33 weeks gestation and spent over 7 weeks in the NICU. The whole experience changed my life, and I am happy to have two healthy boys because of it.
When our newborn boys came home -- the importance of using quality non-toxic ingredients in my home became more important than ever. I wanted to know exactly what was in the candles I was burning in my home, and learn more about the products I used around them. I knew it was time to go after my dream and to start Wesley + Wade Co.
Supporting a clean lifestyle for my family's health became more important than ever, and is woven into what I do. This is why my candles are 100% soy, Phthalate free, Paraben free and Cruelty Free. I use only Clean Scent fragrances, you can learn more about Clean Scents here. These scents are free from carcinogens, reproductive toxins, and other potentially hazardous chemicals often found in fragrance.
