In my mid 40s, I had the unexpected surprise of a pregnancy. Sadly, this pregnancy did not end up the way that I’d hoped. I was carrying twins and lost them both – a devastating time both physically and emotionally. But God… He gave me such encouragement through His word during the time leading up to the loss that I was actually prepared for it – as much as one can be. Our twin girls are named Mercy Bella and Verity Joy, and their names have become the name of my business, Mercy Verity Candles.
This has been MUCH MORE than just a business because it has given me countless opportunities to connect with other women who share the same experience of loss. Many of these women have struggled to fully heal or even talk about it, but finding a common ground and sharing proves to encourage each of us. And for this, I’m so thankful.

-My candle studio is a cozy 386 sq. ft. space based in Greenville, South Carolina and now runs on SOLAR ENERGY!
- I create my candles with intention and precision using soy wax, phthalate-free perfume oils and essential oils. **I also offer a line fragranced ONLY with essential oils. Contact me for this exceptional line**
- Since day one, over ten years now, I have thoroughly enjoyed handwriting the fragrance name on each label, intentionally putting "something more of myself” into each candle. (I actually find this step relaxing.)
- Here in my studio, I do it all: sourcing genius, namer of fragrances, inventory specialist, accountant, logistics manager, fragrance recipe creator, wick straightener, glass polisher, affixer of labels, hand-letterer, customer relations . . . you get the idea.
Hoping my candles bring a coziness + peace to your space. More importantly, I so hope to meet you in person!
