Today is the big day!
Over this past year while sharing stories of all the amazing people in our world that are making a difference, I have been working on a gratitude line of products. These products have been developed with the core intention of "honoring yourself" and "honoring others."
I decided to start with items that I believe convey a message of love. Ones that I would personally give to friends and family. Our starting line up includes candles, bracelets and greeting cards.
Candles were a given for me as I am such a candle lover. There is something about the soft glow of a candle and the aromatic scent that is so very relaxing. I wanted to take this experience one step further and create a candle that also conveyed a message. I have developed seven candles each with their own message of intention. So now, along with experiencing the glow and scent of the candle, one can reflect upon the message and set a personal intention.
It was very important to me that I personally be involved in the creation of each of my products. Therefore, every single candle is made and hand poured by me. After much research, experimentation, and much trial and error, I am very satisfied with the final product. Each candle is made from 100% eco-friendly soy wax, lead-free wicks, and the finest essential and fragrance oils. I have three scents available at this time and will plan on adding more in the future. Each scent is unique in it's own way and has a strong scent throw to envelope you in a blissful sensory experience.
The gratitude bracelets are also handcrafted by me. I've had a lot of fun researching all the gemstone meanings, finding the best quality stones, and putting together unique designs. Each bracelet also has it's own meaning that is reflected by the individual stones used in that bracelet. They have been designed to be beautiful worn alone or blended together as a bracelet stack.
Both the candles and bracelets carry behind them the purpose of showing gratitude. In our fast-paced world, we often forget to show appreciation to the ones that mean the most. With these gifts comes an expressed message of love and gratitude and can be further customized with your own personal message. Each bracelet has a card that reads "each time this bracelet is worn, be reminded of your blessings and the people that are grateful for you", whereas each candle has a dustcover with a message of "when you light this candle, be reminded of your blessings and the people that are grateful for you." A great reminder to reflect on everything we have to be grateful for.
Developing this line has been a fun and rewarding journey and I can't wait to add more products to it. It is my hope that when you are looking for a gift for that special person in your life, that Personal Hero will be a natural place for you to turn to find a gift that carries meaning for the person to experience on a daily basis.
We will also continue to share Personal Hero stories on our website and Instagram as that is such a big part of our mission. It is our one way of making a difference through sharing good news of all the amazing people in our world. We always love to hear your personal stories of the important people in your individual world. You can share your story here to spread some love and inspire others.
With much love and gratitude,
