OWNER + FOUNDER

Meet Kasey!

Kasey’s path to making lotion candles began out of natural curiosity. After many nights spent honing her craft in her kitchen, she began sharing her products at festivals and markets all over the southeast. Customers began returning and sharing that the heated lotion eased their skin troubles like eczema and extremely dry, cracked skin. Upon realizing the therapeutic benefits of the product, she knew she needed to share even more candles—thus began the journey of hiring employees, renting a studio, and eventually opening her own stores. 

Over the years, Kasey's company has grown significantly, and she is proud to be selling Element Tree Essentials products all over the country, with three of her own brick-and-mortar storefronts and countless retail partnerships. When it comes to her own success, Kasey likes to refer to poet Maya Angelou, “Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.”

Please reach out to our shop manager Kelley directly at kelley.elementtree@gmail.com with any questions or concerns. 

Are Element Tree Candles eco-friendly?

Yes, Element Tree Candles are safe for the environment. Our candles are made from cosmetic-grade soybean oil, grapeseed oil, coconut oil, rosehip oil, shea butter, vitamin E, essential oil, and/or fragrance oil. We never add harmful ingredients such as dye stearic acid or UV inhibitor. Our wick has a cotton core that contains no lead or zinc. 

Are your candles safe for everyone?

Due to the nut-based ingredients found in the candles, our candles are not suited for people who are allergic to nuts or nut-based products. If you are someone who is allergic to fragrances used in bath and body products, we suggest testing our product on a small area of skin before applying it to large areas of the body. Also, please be aware of potential candle-related accidents when using them around children.

Should I wait for the melted wax to cool down before applying to skin?

No! Feel free to indulge in the wonderful feeling of warm lotion on your skin right after you blow out the flame! The area around the wick will still hold heat, leaving it the same temperature as a warm bath.
