Crystals are such a beautiful, natural gift in life. I have always had a passion and love for learning about crystals. Crystals can completely transform the energy and ambience in your home. Whether you use crystals for decorative purposes or to manifest, you cannot deny they're beautiful. There is nothing more relaxing to me then coming home and winding down by lighting a candle. I have always found it hard to find natural wax candles with no additives that feel unique and special to me.
I wanted to share my passion and love with the world by creating a product that helps others wind down, relax and feel good about themselves.
Where did the name Fayora come from and what does it mean?
The name Fayora has a mixture of meanings. “Fay” came about as the owners first name is Faye. Faye means Fairy in Middle English. Fairies are mystical beings that are beautiful and magical, this gives the feeling of what Fayora candles are. “Ora” means life in Te Reo Maori which to me resonates with how I feel about crystals & candles, full of life and light. Candles bring light to your life physically & crystals bring light to your life spiritually. Fayora has the sound of Aura which is important to us as Crystals and Candles can set the tone for a calm and relaxing atmosphere. Your home is the most important place as it is your safe place, create a calm, peaceful, relaxing aura in our home with Fayora Candles.
What inspired you to create candles?
This all started with me looking online during Level 4 lockdown in New Zealand to buy candles. I couldn’t find a candle that caught my eye and that felt like it was made for me. The Crystal infused candles that I found online that I fell in love with were all sold out therefore in my spare time I decided to give candle making a go. I was able to do my research and understand what candle making required which resulted in many sleepless nights. I put it to the test by making my first candle using my favourite creamy Soy Wax. Let me tell you, the candle making experience for me was so therapeutic, it felt natural to me. After my candle had cured and fully solidified, I took one of my Titanium Coated Quartz crystals and submerged it into the candle. I instantly feel in love, the iridescent shine, the sparkle of the gold just looked spectacular in my homemade candle. I had never seen a candle so beautiful, with such a large high quality crystal inside of it. I felt like the candle was unique, beautiful and it really fit me. This inspired me to share my joy with everyone and make them feel the way I did, pure happiness.
I believe in life if you have a strong feeling about something and if something feels right to go for it, this is how Fayora was created. Candle making is truly a passion of mine, making candles did not and still does not feel like work to me. I went with my gut feeling and wanting to give luxury unique crystal infused candles to everyone.
