Perfect Presents for Men, Women and Teens
Es Lit is a beautiful business run by Maryanna. She makes natural soy wax, essential oil scented, paraffin and phthalate-free, made with wooden wicks, vegan candles. The candles last way longer than regular cloth wicks, and when blown out, they don’t create that black smoke that easily stains. Maryanna has three collections — Crystallization, Essential, and Vintage. These candles and their scents will make a perfect self-care kit or something cute for a night of relaxation after shopping.
