About me | Wonder Wick

Hi there!

I'm Andrea, the heart and hands behind Wonder Wick.

In 2023, I faced a significant turning point in my life. After years of accumulating stress and neglecting my own needs, I hit a wall and had to step away from my job to start healing. This challenging decision marked the beginning of a transformative journey.

Therapy was a cornerstone of my recovery, but I also had to reassess my daily habits. I realized I wasn’t giving myself enough rest or creating self-care routines to help me unwind. I was constantly on edge, always striving to be productive. This journey taught me that self-care isn't selfish; it's essential. Taking care of myself made me a better person for those I love.

About Wonder Wick

Starting Wonder Wick was a leap of faith driven by two passions:

Inspiring Others: I know many people face similar struggles, and I wanted to share what I've learned about living a happier, more mindful life. Through self-care tips, products with powerful aromatherapy benefits, and honest conversations about mental health, I hope to inspire you to prioritize your well-being. Mental health struggles can be silent and insidious, and it’s easy to lose track of our well-being. I want to help you find balance. On my blog and social media, I share self-care and wellness tips, offering guidance on mental health, mindfulness, aromatherapy, and more.

A dream: Ever since I was a child, I dreamed of having my own business, and I finally took the plunge. On my Instagram, I also share my journey as a small business owner, giving you a glimpse into the highs and lows of building Wonder Wick.

The products are a result of extensive research on essential oils and their benefits for overall well-being. I discovered how different oils can improve both the mind and body. However, I couldn't find candles that were not only made with natural products and pure essential oils but also had blends tailored for specific intentions like relaxation, energy, or focus. Understanding how scent interacts with the limbic system in our bodies, I crafted blends that cater to these needs.

I also realized that music plays a crucial role in our daily lives, complementing the effects of aromatherapy. Combining scent and sound creates a synergy that enhances the benefits of each. Specific music can help amplify what the candle is designed to do – for example, a focus playlist can enhance the clarity provided by certain essential oils.

Self-care

Self-care has become essential in preventing burnout and managing stress. I've learned the importance of certain habits, such as not using my phone in the morning and evening, improving my sleep hygiene, and taking regular breaks. These practices have encouraged me to create a community where self-care is prioritized, and I can share what I've learned to inspire others prioritise themselves.

A bit about me

I'm an introvert who loves animals, and often, I’d rather cuddle with my dog than go out. My mind is a whirlwind of creativity and overthinking. I find peace in reading historical novels, especially on quiet Sunday afternoons. Dancing is my way of letting go, and making candles is my passion. I’m deeply committed to normalizing conversations about mental health because it's something we all battle with to a greater or lesser degree. By sharing my experiences and creating an open dialogue, I hope to break down the stigma and encourage others to seek help and talk about their own struggles.

Wonder Wick is my personal commitment to promoting well-being and self-care in our busy lives. It's about helping you pause, breathe, and find your calm.

Here’s to illuminating your world with mindfulness and purpose.
