We are really excited to introduce this new local maker, Malibu Apothecary, with you after connecting with the owner, Claire! We met at an event, and then hosted our own holiday team party at her studio, where we made our own candles! Her scents are sustainable and non-toxic, and you can make your own personalized candles at her studio too!

Malibu Apothecary launched in 2019 as a mission project based on Claire’s love for travel and her knowledge of fragrance from classes in France. She learned of the toxicity and unethical practices of the beauty and candle industries. Synthetic toxins are often masked by the word “fragrance" with use of carcinogenic, petroleum byproducts for candle wax. This lead Claire to create a cleaner hand-poured candle company!
Find the scented candles online or around town at local retailers and pop-ups. They are made from natural coconut and soy wax, essential oil infused fragrances, and cotton wicks. These combinations are inspired by beaches she's visited around the world, and 5% of profits are donated to coastal conservation with Heal the Bay.
Find Claire’s studio in Oak Cliff at Tyler Station (next to Oak Cliff Brewing). It’s a cozy space perfect for eating cheese, drinking wine, and pouring custom candles! Her classes include choosing a vessel, creating your own custom fragrance, and combining the ingredients to create a candle. While your candles cure, you can mix and mingle, and you get a personalized label graphic designed for your candle!
Open classes can be booked on eventbrite! To book private classes contact Claire directly at firstname.lastname@example.org! Private classes can also come to you within the DFW area!
