An evening stroll through the woods. You arrive at the edge of a clearing just as the last light of the day fades into violet dusk. Purple heliotrope, soothing chamomile, and fragrant lavender peek between the tree trunks, and a carpet of soft moss beckons invitingly; the perfect place to sit and rest awhile.
The rational part of your brain screams, Are you out of your MIND? First of all, this is the forest, there are wild animals out here. This is neither the time nor the place for a nap. Second, this whole setup screams horror film—who’s to say there isn’t an axe-wielding madman lurking just on the other side of those trees, waiting to prey on suckers who wander into the woods after dark?
The romantic part of your brain purrs, It’s so inviting. Why not stay?
Which voice should you trust?
A figure emerges from the trees at the other side of the clearing. Oh, shit. It’s the axe murderer. As you wait for your fight or flight instinct to kick in, your brain registers that the figure is a woman. (Axe murderess? Let’s not be sexist, after all.) She beckons—and the romantic in you wins out. Cautiously, you step into the clearing, unsure of what to expect.
The woman, tall, serene, and clothed in robes of deepest purple, smiles and gestures for you to lay down. As you stretch out on the cool, springy moss, recognition dawns on you: she is Breksta, the goddess of twilight and dreams, who stands guard between sunset and sunrise. You’re safe here. Calm washes over you as you close your eyes and sink into a dream.
Gone are the days of methodically dipping bits of string into vats of rendered tallow to make candles so that you can ward off the unrelenting darkness of those long, winter evenings (which you will then spend darning socks while Pa reads aloud from the scriptures, naturally). Basically, candles are yesterday’s news—wax melts are where it’s at. In the era of artificial light, we just want our homes to smell nice, damn it. In this crazy, mixed up world, can we at least agree on that much? Why We’re the Internet’s Favorite Wax Melts

Meet Brandon, our founder!
Crumble Co founder Brandon Love crafted his first crumble product in 2015, at 2:00am while trying to de-stress from the weight of the world around him. He had a motto: Stay busy, it gets better.
With roots in graphic design, copywriting and small batch manufacturing, Brandon's super power have always been creating online experiences that simply feel good.
Tied in with a deep passion for queer equality and women's rights, Brandon has built the small empire that is Crumble Co - and has had a hell of a lot of fun while doing it. He's passionate about empowering fellow Queerpreneurs though his work, both here, at Crumble and beyond.
