soaps and candles
We like Aloha Bay’s bright, cheery colors as well as their
ethically-sourced materials. Their candle-making facility at
Lower Lake CA focuses on employing as many human hands
as possible, rather than relying on automation. Aloha Bay’s
sister site in Java uses only solar power and simple candle-
making tools, providing year-round work in a rural area. All
Aloha Bay suppliers are RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable
Palm Oil) certified.

Rad Soap Co.
It all began in a small kitchen fueled by a mother’s love where
founder, Sue Kerber searched for something natural to relieve
her son’s eczema. In early 2009, she turned her entrepreneurial
spirit and passion for blending natural ingredients into what is
today known as the Rad Soap Co. From that point forward, Sue
and her family developed a unique proprietary process for
creating their hand crafted batches of soap.
In 1982, Gary Austin hand-made an olive oil Castile soap for his
two-year-old son, Aaron, who was allergic to grocery-aisle-soap.
After realizing that there was a community of people with
sensitive skin who would benefit from Gary’s soap, SallyeAnder
and the commitment to creating the best soap in America was
born. Since then, every product decision has been made with
one intention: delivering the highest quality, all-natural skincare
solutions to our customers.
We fell in love with the beauty and grace of Vance Kitira’s
candle designs and are proud to offer them in our store.
Founder Vance Kitira is a native of Thailand, and a lover of
nature whose 20+years of business experience in the US
inspired him to establish a candle factory in his homeland. The
business has grown into a world-wide enterprise, providing
employment security to its many crafters. Among other
charitable projects, Vance Kitira donates a portion of its sales
toward reforestation in Thailand.
Vance Kitira candles are made of food-grade paraffin wax that
is translucent, odorless, and lab-tested as smokeless when
To accompany the candles we make ourselves,
we stock the work of other soap and candle makers
in our region.
