Hello! Welcome to our store!Thank you for taking the time to stop and take a look around. The owner and creator is Fiona Tallman. She has been making soy candles since 2001. She has studied and tested her soy candles to make sure that you get the most burn time and the most optimum fragrance that you will every find. She is also an avid candle burner. She started making soy candles because she has asthma and she was allergic to paraffin candles. After a few years in the candle making business, she went back to school and took aromatherapy and cosmetic classes to make her own hand lotion, face creams and bath goodies. She only uses the finest ingredients to put on your skin. Fiona also uses this business to help feed the homeless in Los Angeles. Each time that you order from our store, a portion of the proceeds go towards food, clothing and Bibles for the homeless in the Los Angeles area. If you would like to check out our adventures each week, please go to our website www.underthetentsofshem.com. Any purchases that you make from our store we are humbled and very thankful! Please check with us often, as she is always creating, testing and adding something new!!
