Our Mission is to create the highest quality products for our customers and clients. Bella Luci Candles, LLC was born in 2009, the vision of Bill Maurer. After two years of research and extensive testing we were ready to start our company.
Bill set the bar high. He used only the finest USA grown Soy, California beeswax, American made phthalate free fragrances and essential oils, lead free cotton wicks, beautiful handmade Alabaster glass containers and eco friendly packaging made in America.
My husband Bill and myself, Donna are always striving to make our company and products the best they can be. We take part in every aspect of our business from hand pouring the candles in Cressey, CA. to formulating the fragrances to packing and shipping the orders. We love developing new products and packaging. I am an artist and incorporate my art into the labels and packaging design. Bills engineering background has helped from developing the molds for our drop-ins to building the room we pour our candles in. We love a challenge.
Bill and I want Bella Luci Candles, LLC to inspire others to bring small business back to America. We are so impressed with the many creative hardworking, handmade business owners we meet who still believe in the American Dream.
Keeping a low carbon footprint is high on our list so we use recycled products whenever possible. All our food safe glass is re useable or can be easily reused as a candle with our drop-in refills.
Our Motto is: Dream Big, Work Hard, Be Honest and Love What You Do.
Thank-you for visiting Tierra Verde soy Candles. We have changed our name to Bella Luci Candles, LLC. as of March 10 2015. Bella Luci means "Beautiful Light". All our candles are still hand poured in Cressey CA. We will always be moving forward and keeping our high standards for our customers. We would Love to be your Candle Company.
Bill and Donna Maurer
The idea for the Keepsake Treasure Box began with my Mom. She always wore Topaz perfume. I kept an old empty bottle of her perfume and opened it to smell the scent when I was missing her. The fragrance made me feel close to her, like she was there with me.
I started thinking of ways I could make it easier to keep a fragrance remembrance of my loved ones. It’s been clinically proven a fragrance can bring back a Strong Emotional Memory faster than sight or sound. We designed a beautiful little tin and put a paper disc inside it. Just spray your perfume or his cologne or any scent that reminds you of something or someone special. The scent will stay and can be enjoyed anytime you want to feel your loved one close.
We put the tin in a beautiful little box with a note card to write a personal message. It’s like in days gone by when women would spray their perfume on love letters and send them to their men who were gone to war or just far away from them.
The little tin can also store other treasures besides a scent. Put in any keepsake treasure you want to keep or give to someone special.
When you’re on a vacation send a Wish You Were Here treasure box and put some sand and a small shell from the beach you just walked on .
With the Sealed with a Kiss box put in jewelry or flower petals from your wedding bouquet or a ticket stub from the movie you went to on your first date.
In the Letters from Home send your signature scent or a picture of the family to help your new college student with home sickness.
A Forget me not treasure could be a lock of hair from your new born baby or put baby lotion on the disk to remember that smell of your new born baby. Put a picture in the box or the bracelet from the hospital the possibilities are as endless as your love.
These little Keepsake Treasure boxes make the perfect gift. Something very personal that can be kept and treasured for years.
