The Art of Sustainable Living: How Alkimi Living Candles Bring Harmony to Your Home

Hey there, I'm Pratiksha, one of the co-founders of Alkimi Living—a homegrown home fragrance brand that I started with my then-boyfriend, now husband, Shivam. Our journey began with a shared passion for sustainability and a dream to create something that would make a positive impact on the world around us.

As an eco-conscious brand, we're deeply committed to addressing the pressing environmental issues that trouble our planet today—littering, mass consumption, air pollution, and plastic waste. We believe that even small changes can make a significant difference, and that's where our mindful products come into play. Our products are designed to help tackle these pressing environmental issues by providing eco-friendly alternatives to everyday items.

At Alkimi Living, we take immense pride in handcrafting clean-burning, all-natural candles using only the finest botanical ingredients. Each candle is lovingly made in small batches to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail. When you light one of our candles, you not only experience its delightful aroma but also contribute to a cleaner, greener world. Our candles are handcrafted with care using the finest botanical ingredients, ensuring clean-burning and all-natural products. Each candle is made in small batches, guaranteeing the highest quality and attention to detail.

Selecting the best sustainable packaging options was another hurdle. We wanted our candles to arrive at your doorstep safe and sound without harming the environment. After much research and thoughtful consideration, we settled on eco-friendly packaging materials that are recyclable and biodegradable. To ensure the safe delivery of our candles while minimizing our impact on the environment, we carefully researched and evaluated various sustainable packaging options. Our extensive analysis led us to select eco-friendly materials that are both recyclable and biodegradable.
Competing with mass-producing candle makers posed challenges. Large-scale production is convenient, but we prioritize authenticity and craftsmanship. Our candles stand out with a personal touch. We thank our customers for valuing our efforts.

Incorporating these values into our business has been a journey of growth, learning, and connection. We've met incredible individuals who share our passion and customers who resonate with our purpose. Building Alkimi Living has been an enriching experience, and we are excited to see how our brand continues to evolve in its pursuit of sustainability. As we have incorporated these values into our business, we have experienced tremendous growth, gained valuable knowledge, and formed meaningful connections. Our journey has introduced us to remarkable individuals who also share our passion, and our purpose has deeply resonated with our customers.

Thank you for being a part of our journey towards a more mindful and harmonious world. Together, we can create positive change, one clean-burning candle at a time. 

With Love and Gratitude,

Pratiksha Co-founder, Alkimi Living
