Our fragrances and candle collection is worldly inspired and eco-friendly with our reusable vessels. Every candle scent has intention behind it to create an atmosphere within your home that is both unique and inviting. 

So, what is Agapé? It is about loving and embracing one another, simply because they are a being. Within the Christian faith It is used to describe the unconditional and pure love that God has for his Children.  Agapé is also one of the 4 greek words for love (storge, philia, eros, and agapé). 

This isn't just a candle, it's Apothecary for the Soul.

 

Rachel Rae, Creator + Founder of Agapé Candles

Hi, I'm Rachel Rae, the founder of Agapé Candles. As long as I can remember i have always been a connoisseur of candles (if you will) and loved fragrances. Even my daily perfumes were different ones layered for a unique scent. I started making my own candles because I just couldn't find the perfect scent for my home. It evolved and Agapé Candles was born! 

   Creating this line, I have poured my heart and soul into every piece of it. Choosing the name was the most important for me. I get asked often why Agapé? Simply, it is love. The love God has for us and what we should have for one another. And who doesn't love, love?! Each candle is personal to me and there is a story or memory behind each scent. 

   When I'm not pouring candles in the studio you can find me decorating! I have a passion for interior design and love curating a new spaces. I also love slow Saturday mornings spent with my husband and 2 fur babies!
