It’s a classic story of soy meets girl.
She produced her debut collection, Francis Ellis (named for her grandparents), from scratch in her Pilsen kitchen using organic ingredients and essential oils.
Scents range from flora (lavender, lemon grass, eucalyptus, citrus) to daring (s’mores, bacon, fresh dirt — which we find strangely addictive) to holiday varieties (cappuccino hazelnut, pumpkin souffle, firewood). Every size is available, from tea light to a whopping 56 ounces (500 hours of firepower).
Because they have no genetically modified organisms (non-GMO) and are made from dermatology-tested, biodegradable soy wax, they double as body moisturizers or massage oils as they melt.
That should, ahem, keep the flame alive.
