Founder: Sam Zanarini
Creator and owner of Soy Into You. Candles are apart of my everyday life, literally. There isn't a day where I don't light a candle; it gives me so much comfort and joy as the fragrance fills the room and I pray that it gives you the same comfort as well!
I am a mama of two pit bulls, Nala + McLovin' - my fur babies. My first job was actually at Macy's department store in the fragrance department. That's when I first fell in love with fragrances and helping people pick the perfect fragrance for themselves or their loved ones. Candle making gives me a purpose in life that has never been fulfilled and I am forever grateful that God led me on this journey.
Having family members, including myself who have struggled with mental health has made it a relatable venture thus far. My first collection released is the Inspire Collection which is the core of my business - my signature scents. There are five candles introduced with 100% soy wax, lead free/eco-friendly wicks, hand poured with love and phthalate free fragrance oil. Each candle scent correlates with ones mental state of mind. Listed below are the five candle scents and how they affect ones state of mind.

Peppermint is an energy booster and invigorates the mind. Peppermint also promotes concentration and stimulates clear thinking.
