A symbol of light and hope.
Meet our founder, Sarjia Esha. Sarjia was born in Bangladesh and she moved to the United States with her family to have a better life.
Essence Wicks was founded during the pandemic in 2020. As the world changed, businesses and borders closed, and Sarjia's University transitioned to an all online learning format. She felt her stress grow as so many of us had to change our routines and adapt to a new normal. Working full-time in health-care, Sarjia has seen first-hand the struggles the pandemic has caused, but she has also the witnessed strength that endures amongst the most challenging times.
When hope seemed to be all but lost, Sarjia began making candles to feel warmth, support, and bring back comforting and familiar smells. Our scents are designed to smell like home and our mission is to bring a symbol of light and hope into your home during difficult times.
Every purchase from Essence Wicks supports a family, small business, and a dream. We hope our candles allow you to take a step back, unwind and believe that the best things are yet to come.
