About

Hello! Meet the founders and creators of Lotus & Balance. 

He pours the concrete, she pours the wax!

They met in 5th grade, fell in love junior year of high school, went to college, got married and had 3 amazing kids. Both born and raised in Wa, now living in Bothell and raising 3 teenagers (wish them luck!) and a rescue pup from Aruba.

Through a mutual passion and desire for creativity and human connection again - Lotus & Balance Candle Co was born. They both got to work mastering their craft of candle making and business building. Still learning and loving the adventure - they are gearing up for a very full and fun year. Side gigs gone wild -this is the dream job! :)
