A word from the artist and creator behind KY Selenite Crystal Candles, Kylie:
I am from a small, beach town in California, USA, called San Clemente. I have a beautiful son named Waylon who inspires me every day. Family has always been the most important thing to me.
From a young age, I remember my mom was constantly sick. My father and brother would be working thousands of miles away, leaving my sister, mother, and me at home. Many years of taking care of my mother and younger sister honed my natural nurturing abilities.
My mom was in and out of the hospital until I was twenty-one years old. Two weeks after my son was born, we were told she wasn’t going to have much more time with us. I became angry at the thought of losing my mother when I felt I needed her most. One day, during our frequent visits, she sternly insisted I take a walk with her. We packed her IV pole into her backpack and headed to the dirt trails behind my parent’s property.
We walked a trail until my mother grew tired. As she began to slow down, she spotted a rock in the soil. We looked closer and noticed the rock had a certain shine to it. We took home what we thought was just a rock, but when we grabbed a hammer and cracked it open, we found out it was a selenite crystal. Imagine our surprise at finding a healing crystal right in our backyard!
After that, my mom and I went out every day and began finding hundreds of selenite crystals. Eventually, we had collected so many that we wanted to come up with something special to do with them. I love everything about baths, so I tried to think of how I could use the healing properties of selenite for bath time. That is when I came up with the idea of putting the crystals into bath soaks and scrubs and… a business was born! Placing the selenite in the bath products means that you can carry the healing energy of the crystal in your body, not just your mind.
My ultimate hope for customers drawn to my KY Selenite products is that they feel the mind-body-spirit connection and are able to heal that bond by ridding themselves of the negativity they are carrying. I hope they can feel the power of selenite in the way my mother did when she discovered the stones behind our family home.
To add to my healing intentions, I began making all natural, completely organic, vegan candles with wooden wicks. The selenite crystals you find in my candles represent everything my mother is to me: Strength, Courage, Grace, Beauty, and Selflessness. I am grateful to share in the success of KY Selenite Crystal Co. with my mother today and every day. We continue to love and heal, and I hope our products support you on your love and healing journey, as well.
