Marie's Halo is a brand of soy candles created by Andessa Augustin in honor of her late grandmother, affectionately known as "mum", who was a source of inspiration and entrepreneurship for her. Growing up in St. Lucia, Andessa witnessed her grandmother's entrepreneurial spirit as she baked and created knick-knacks for their village. This influenced Andessa to create her own brand of soy candles, Marie's Halo.

Originally established in Brooklyn, NY, Marie's Halo is now based in Baltimore, MD, where small batches of candles are hand-poured and carefully cured for hours to achieve a classic finish. Each candle is crafted with love, using all-natural soy wax, 100% wooden wicks, and phthalate-free fragrance oils, making it an environmentally friendly product that customers can comfortably burn in their homes. Marie's Halo candles are a testament to Andessa's commitment to creating high-quality, sustainable, and meaningful products in honor of her beloved grandmother.
