about the chandler
Hi! I’m Psyche Ramirez, a self taught chandler behind Psyche Candles PH.
I am a 30-year-old entrepreneur and business owner.
Up until today, my candles are poured in small batches in my tiny kitchen somewhere South of Metro Manila. Psyche Candles PH has been making candles inspired by feelings and memories since 2017.
A short story - Before Psyche Candles PH, I was a young corporate employee who was trying to survive in the media and marketing industry. Everything about my work was fast paced, and I was struggling to keep up with it. I turned to scented candles to help me find my calm and focus.
One night, while creating a mood board for my next project, I came across a post about DIY soy candles. To satisfy my curiosity, I immediately purchased my raw materials the following day. My first candle was poured into a recycled glass jar.
After six months of burn testing, I finally made a candle that was just right - good quality, simple, and minimalist. And everything else was confetti.
