The Tucson-based candle company draws inspiration from the goddess of Tibetan Buddhism, Arya Tara. The company’s name and ethos are rooted in the story of Wisdom Moon, a princess from another universe. She devoted herself to good deeds and compassion for all sentient beings. She reached bodhicitta, the path to enlightenment, and wished to become a Buddha to end the suffering of all living beings. A monk told her that she needed to be reborn as a man to fulfill her wish. She saw the flaw in his logic and made a vow to be reborn as a woman until she reached her aspiration of becoming a Buddha in female form. Through determination, she became Goddess Ārya Tārā, the mother of all Buddhas.
Their founder, Merve, is also a big inspiration and has always been passionate about fragrance–she obtained her Master’s degree from ISIPCA, a world-famous perfumery school in France. This institution was the perfect place for her to learn about the wonderful dimension that scents add to our lives.
“I started this business to help you realize how easy it is to create a positive light in your daily life just by adding a beautiful scent to your space. To me, fragrance is magic and I would like to share this wonderful magic with you.”
The candles themselves are made with high-quality, natural ingredients and are designed to evoke the spirit of Arya Tara. Each candle is hand-poured and infused with essential oils, creating a unique and soothing aroma. The company offers a variety of scents, including lavender, sandalwood, and frankincense, all of which are designed to promote relaxation and mindfulness.
With their commitment to quality and sustainability they are a shining example of how businesses can make a positive impact on the world.
