About Us

Good Mood Candle Co was born out of a love for creating great smelling, non-toxic candles, and a passion for mental well-being. Our scents are custom blended to gently illuminate the path towards the mood and health you are seeking. Each candle is hand-poured, hand-mixed, and hand-made from start to finish in sunny St. Pete, FL. We hope you will use these candles to encourage an atmosphere of positivity, growth, and self-love.

About Rachel

My love of candles stretches back to my childhood--my mom kept our home bright and beautiful with her candles, so they’ve always been a comfort for me. But it wasn't until college that they became an anchor for my mental health. I had always struggled with anxiety and depression, but with the pressures of college and navigating adult life, there came a point where my mental health completely fell apart. My coping mechanisms were failing, my breathing wouldn’t slow, and I was suffering multiple panic attacks a day. 

This began an 8 year journey into learning about mental illness and how to tame it. The routine I built included lighting a candle, morning bible studies, turning off the TV before bed, practicing positive self-talk, seeing a counselor, and at times taking medication. 

That routine inspired Good Mood Candle Co. and I’m so honored by the opportunity to make beautiful, curated candles you can use in your self-care. 

Never forget: You are loved. You are enough. You are invaluable.

 

"So keep your thoughts continually fixed on all that is authentic and real, honorable and admirable, beautiful and respectful, pure and holy, merciful and kind. And fasten your thoughts on every glorious work of God, praising him always.
Philippians 4:8
