Our journey began as a bold idea and turned into a life-changing commitment.
My name is Karla ("Kay" for short), and I am the face behind HaciendAroma Candle Co.
I started this adventure in the middle of the COVID-19 shutdown! I knew this was my opportunity to find my niche. I knew my glass ceiling needed to be broken, so I built a business with the sole purpose of creating unique custom pieces with no limitations and quality products. I opted for candles; they are versatile, can be unique, and constantly evolving. The goal is to create unique candles utilizing only quality components keeping our ecosystem pledge in mind. A lot goes into making quality candles; I had never given them the value they deserve, until now.
I am a wife, student, creator, adventurer, and mother to several livestock animals (horses, goats, roosters, dogs, rabbits, and a Pepa the pig). They are definitely a lot of work and require plenty of patience, but I love it all. The dirty clothes, muddy boots, and dusty face, but once, I walk in the house, is a different story. A lot of cleaning to do, but I wouldn't want it any other way. I love spending time with my family; my parents are my backbone (the best), my sister my conscious (haha), and my husband my heart (awww). I love to travel, so far Fiji has been the most memorable adventure for me. I am grateful, passionate, and purposeful.
We donate a portion of the sales to the
International Rescue Committee; $1 dollar per candle sold and we match the total at the end of the year.
The more we grow, the more we can give to those in need.
