ABOUT URBAN WANDERLUST
Urban Wanderlust is a latin-owned handcrafted candle business from Queens, New York, established in 2017. Our highly fragrant collections are inspired by memorable moments in travel from our Founders life. We hope to envoke your olfactory senses with our carefully curated fragrances.
Each candle is lovingly hand-poured and tested in small batches for quality & freshness. We use only the finest natural ingredients to create a clean burning experience that's safe for you and your household. All of our products are handcrafted in our Founders home studio.
Our products are 100% cruelty-free and scented with fragrance oils free from all phthalates & parabens.
Our materials are eco-cotton wicks, and cardboard packaging. Our packaging is American made, using recycled materials where-ever possible. Our glassware is of the utmost quality, chosen for reusability.
Our soy candles are hand poured using soy wax, which is biodegradable and manufactured from American-grown soy beans. Our candles use full fragrance, which is non-toxic, containing no phthalates.
We strive to remain a sustainable brand by reusing biodegradable packaging items for shipment, along with our Recycling Jar Program.
MEET THE FOUNDER
Judith has always been crafty since childhood making her own, when they couldn't afford to buy. Continuing into her adult years she's built her own floating shelves, DIY'ed coffee tables and reupholstered anything she could get her hands on, and now candle-making.
Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY and now residing in Queens with her husband, Peter and their 5 year-old Frenchie, Brooklyn.
The name Wanderlust in its self means "a strong desire to travel" and since she was a little girl her grandmother instilled this dream of 'seeing the world' into her mind. So it was only natural for Judith to have a passion for travel.
With over 11 countries visited with Peter by her side and so many more on their list to discover! This dream of traveling the world inspired the creation of Urban Wanderlust, along with its first candle line, The Destination Collection. She wanted to bottle up memories and scents of each place they've visited in candle form, to give as gifts for friends & family... and that's when the fun started!
