“We started in 2020, when we blew up during the pandemic, which has been great. This is the branch off of my 12-year-old company, Yo Soy Candle, which I sold in January. Now we’re doing this full-time and expanding our hours and offerings with wine and beer,” founder Leslie Moore told What Now Portland.

According to the company website, “Founder, Leslie Moore is an entrepreneur through and through and The Candle Creation Bar is her fourth business venture. She spent her late 20s as an esthetician which led her to become her own boss.”

“In 2010, Leslie quit her job at a waxing salon and traveled to Costa Rica for Yoga Teacher Training. That experience changed her life forever. She spent 7 years teaching yoga and doing esthetic work full-time in her own studio.”

“In 2011, Leslie began Yo Soy Candle which was born out of serendipity, her healing journey, and a deep connection to the community. From there, she opened up The Candle Creation Bar in 2020 and now it is her full-time manifestation of a dream job!”

“The Candle Creation Bar prospered from the deep knowing that we needed a safe, healing, connected space to create and have a good time. The self-crafted “I Am” statements that pair with your candle creation are Leslie’s way of empowering others to open up the doors to their healing journeys and connect with their deeper needs.”
