The Story of Persephone Light Co.

About the designer

Hi, friends! My name is Sarah. I’m a lifelong bibliophile and love to create. You can usually find me in my reading nook or in my studio making something or other. I’m from a sleepy, little historic town nestled at the convergence of two beautiful rivers where history and year round ghost tours are a way of life. I love our little corner of paradise here in West Virginia and feel inspired daily by our spooky history and stunning vistas. 

Persephone Light Co.

Persephone Light Co. is my little dream child borne from my love of books, a dark & dreamy aesthetic, and my constant need for atmosphere. Candles can create beautiful light and purvey transportive aromas. I design each of my candles in hopes that they will enrich your space and create an unforgettable experience. 

Why Persephone?

I chose the likeness of Persephone as representation, as I feel she is a dynamic embodiment of both the dark and beautiful. She was both the goddess of spring & the mistress of the underworld. Don’t we all have a little bit of darkness and lightness in our hearts? “Our hearts are wild creatures, that is why our ribs are cages.”(Unknown)

I don’t know how you get a candle to literally smell like a Gothic Mansion, but Sarah nailed it!

Lori, Book Reviewer & Customer

These candles [from Persephone Light Co.] are just what you need. You don’t even have to light them for the scent to be all over the room.

Manda, Book Reviewer & Customer

There’s a new candle shop in town, Persephone Light Co. uses cool wooden wicks that crackle as they burn. She’s a friend, but the candles smell and look amazing.
