As a child, Key West artist Caroline Horn helped her mother and aunt pour batches of candles into glassware from the family’s drug store soda fountain. The sisters used every available heat source including their gas grill to melt together wax and a variety of scented fragrance oils and crayons before decorating the vessels with delicate dried botanicals. 
Caroline’s methods at Honest Alchemy are more scientific and a bit less fussy, but they were inspired by the same love of botanicals and fragranced candles. 
Founded in 2019, Honest Alchemy rekindled Caroline’s creative spark as she uses her childhood memories to create beautifully scented candles using sustainable practices and materials.
