Our Story


Handcrafted with love by artisan and entrepreneur April in the heart of the home -- the kitchen. Founded on a passion for wholesome + luxury products, and a recognized need for a non-toxic alternative that still offers the luxurious variety many of us love. The name Luminescent originates from her intent to enlighten consumers on the negative effects of traditional candles, and illuminate a more natural -yet still luxurious- solution. When it comes to these products, she is committed to the integrity of her process, and to providing a little bit of comfort and light in what can sometimes be a dim world. 


Our candles are crafted with the most luxurious, rare ingredients: premium-grade coconut wax sustainably and ethically sourced in the USA + pure, non-toxic scents infused with essential oils + natural cotton wicks. Together, these elements produce a luxuriously long lasting and clean burn. Every package comes elegantly gift wrapped. All of our products are 100% cruelty-free.  


The passion behind our company involves a story that took place in 2005 during a hospital visit, when doctors informed us that April's younger brother, Brandon, had been diagnosed with Cystic Fibrosis- a rare, genetic disease that obstructs the lungs and many other parts of the body, for which there is currently no cure. The toxic chemicals in traditional candles are notably more harmful for anyone with CF (in addition to children, pets, and our own lungs), thus the need for a natural alternative has never been greater. For this reason, a portion of all profits are donated to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in hopes of finding a cure.
