Shay Candles and Soaps is a Los Angeles, California home-based artisan candle and soap company owned and operated by Rachez Miller.
Rachez and her Family -husband (30 years, yikes), and three children (now all grown)- have lived (and still do) in the Redondo Beach South Bay Area for over 20 years. They love the beach lifestyle, camping, their dogs (5 in all), and backyard BBQs.
The Studio where all the creativity happens is a she-shed behind the house. The Business Launched in 2012 with a Candle Line after over a year of Research and Development (lots of wax testing, wicks too large or entirely too small, and fragrance approvals provided by friends). Then in 2019 Soaps were added, again after over a year of Research and Development (globs too soft or cement-like oops) until the perfect moisturizing, luxury soap recipe was developed.
The Moon Logo was inspired by Rachez’s experience with the “power of the moon” shining over the ocean in Haiti, a night dive in the Turks and Caicos Islands, the Bahamas, and at home; the wonder filling her children’s eyes when they gazed into the night sky from the campsite all those years ago; the moonlight calling her to step outside and bathe in the moonbeams.
Rachez’s Work Experience includes owning Chez Decor Antiques & Gifts shop in Redondo Beach, Marketing positions at Fisherman’s Village in Marina del Rey, Shoreline Village in Long Beach (she worked for the Grand Opening in 1983), Ventura Harbor Village and the Los Angeles Convention and Visitors Bureau.
