Malibu Apothecary was inspired by Founder Claire Ellis’s love for travel, wellness, and all things luxury. This passion for travel led her all around the globe. From spending months living on the Côte d'Azur to solo trips exploring Asia, Claire believed no beach should be left unexplored. Based on the science that scent is the strongest trigger of memory, Claire started pouring candles as a hobby in her Southern California apartment in between her travels, aiming to capture the spirit of the places she visited through fragrance. Here, she discovered the toxicity and unethical standards prevalent throughout the candle industry.
Malibu Apothecary candles use clean-burning coconut wax and sustainably sourced essential oil-infused fragrances to support their mission of creating cleaner candles for a cleaner Earth. Additionally, 20% of sales are donated directly to coastal conservation efforts.
