Early in 2019, I longed to create a signature scent of Will & Ivey. Pulling from our motto, “Weaving peace and purpose through fashion,” I wanted to create a candle that gave out a peaceful calming aroma. Debbie DeJean, owner and founder of EKKO CANDLE, guided me through the creation process and beautifully blended a 100% Soy Candle for us. A mixture of Bergamot, Sandalwood, and Cedar melted together with the soft aroma of Jasmine and Honey. “The comfort of sitting by a fire with a soft smooth finish of fresh Jasmine.”

Little did I know that shortly after releasing the candle the world would be in a place of needing so much peace in our homes. Pausing and reading and praying have been my life-saving rhythms these days. I love to light a candle in the morning or before I go to bed and sit with the Prince of Peace who calms my heart and carries my burdens.

“Lord, I come before you ready to pour out my worries, anxieties, and fears at your feet. I am claiming and declaring your promises for blessings of peace and strength over my life. Bring a peace into my soul that passes all worldly understanding and make me a light for others to see your strength.” – Anonymous

During this time of disconnect and unease, I hope Will and Ivey can pour out a bit of encouragement. There are so many needs, may we find what’s near to our hearts, reach out, and love well!
