My name is Melissa Castillo, I am a mother of two, wife, daughter, friend, and the ambitious owner of Sky Lyte Candles! I am so excited to share my journey of building my business from the ground up with the world! My interest in the candle making business began in 2017 while I was pregnant with my daughter Skylar. I found that being surrounded by the sweet aroma of a candle was both comforting and relaxing after a long and stressful day. However, it wasn’t long until I started to notice that my store-bought candles’ scent wouldn’t last very long. The scents were either too faint or too strong which would make me nauseous. With the help of my loving husband, Andre, we began making our own candles at home, started sharing them with close friends and family, and at last Sky Lyte was born! Luckily my business continued to grow and I am now able to share my products with anyone looking for a long-lasting, healthy, and affordable candle. We have created a soy-based product with a hemp wick that is coated in beeswax. The wicks allow for a bigger flame and the beeswax creates a longer burn time for each candle. The fragrance will last as long as the candle does so that anyone who purchases can get their money’s worth and enjoy the unique scent they love. Thank you so much for taking time to read my story, Sky Lyte hopes to Lyte up your world soon!
