Origin Story of The Zona Co.


In retrospect, The Zona Co. was founded a long time ago, I just didn't quite realize it yet. Ever since I was a little girl, I was always in the lab trying to make my own "potions" for my family and myself. I would mix and create my own shampoos, soaps, perfumes and would absolutely have a blast inventing my own little creations. As it turned out... I would be doing the exact same thing, just 20 years later with spunky-named, clean-ingredient candles! 

The Zona Co. came into fruition one evening when I was shopping for candles and suddenly had the random urge to know exactly what was IN the candles I was buying. I was just starting to really pay attention to the products I was bringing into my home. My curiosity was positively peaked! To my surprise, I did not like what I read. I never knew how unhealthy some candles could actually be, and the lasting effects they could have on my family, pets, home, and myself.

That's when a little light bulb went off. I spent countless hours, weeks, and months researching and testing, knowing I was on a mission to create something everyone would feel safe and excited to have in their homes. Flash forward and here we are: clean-ingredient, spunky candles, made just for you! 

What sets our candles apart from others?

The Zona Co. candles are made of 100% all-natural soy wax from soybeans grown right here in the U.S. They are non-toxic, infused with clean fragrance oils and essential oils, and topped real crystal chips. To take it a step further, our products are also free of lead, zinc, phthalates, carcinogens, and reproductive toxins. The essential oils and crystals aid in various helpful benefits. Our flat-braided cotton wicks + our eco-friendly wax cause each candle to burn clean, slow, and soot-free, ultimately giving you a guilt-free burn. No harm, no foul here! 
Check out our ingredient list. Our candles are non-toxic, made in small batches with 100% all-natural soy wax from American grown soy beans, are phthalate free, infused with essential oils, and have lead-free and zinc-free cotton wicks.
While health comes first, we strongly believe happiness is right alongside it! Our unique and spunky candle names will put a smile on your face and hopefully remind you to not always take life so seriously. Our candles serve as a sense of comedic relief and a little spark of joy to add to your everyday life... not to mention the magical glowing effect that takes you on a cozy, calming retreat with every light.

Meaning of the Mantra

I came up with this mantra while daydreaming about my future and envisioning my true goals in life. Shortly after, I came up with the idea for The Zona Co. Since then, this mantra has really been the foundation of everything I create. It's amazing the things that can happen in your life when you just focus on this simple concept: breathe. envision. manifest.
