Aloha.

My name is Gary Koji Nakamura. I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawai‘i, and I am a graduate of Roosevelt High School and the University of Hawai‘i. I am a writer, educator, and candlemaker. I am the dad of three fur babies: Zeus, Peaches, and Einstein.

A small business driven by passion and purpose.

WE exist to create harmony by helping you bring tranquility into your home through hand-made soy candles and melts. With a focus on high quality and premium materials, WE hope to make every “me-time” moments of perfection.

In addition to our commitment to #selfcareisthebestcare, WE also believe that animals also enrich our lives. As part of our commitment to our community and animals, WE will donate 3% of all sales each month to support local organizations who rescue and care for stray, abused, or abandoned animals.

Rescues.

All of the animals in my life are rescues.

Zeus (a high-energy canine) was found on the side of a street, abandoned in a small cardboard box with an empty food bowl. At first, we were only going to take him in as a foster for the weekend but we quickly fell in love with him and he has been with us ever since.

Peaches (our calico princess) was a tiny kitten when she was found in a Waikīkī hotel parking lot. When her rescuer couldn’t take her in, we drove down to the hotel to pick her up. She was a feisty ball of fur that brought with her an enormous amount of love. She claimed us as her family on that first night.

Einstein (the acrobatic ninja), also a rescue, came into our lives shortly after a visit to Pōpoki and Tea, a local cat café. I was looking for a playmate for Peaches, and his energy and spunk made Einstein a perfect match. And after a short warm-up period, they became best friends.
