Q: Where does the name "Rafa" come from?
A: The inspiration comes from the Hebrew language, though spelled "Rapha", I just changed the spelling. The rough translation I believed to be "healing" or "to heal".
Q: Why is the word "healing" important to you?
A: Buckle up, Buttercup! When deciding if I wanted to pursue this small-business path back in 2013 I prayed/meditated on it. Within a minute or two of sitting in silence my mind was flooded with rapid-fire images ( I do not recall what they were) and I heard the words "heal" and "healing" repeatedly over these images. At that time I thought the healing process was physical and more so intended for others, but in reality Rafa has helped heal my emotional and spiritual wellbeing. I am so glad I was encouraged down this path!
Q: What ingredients go into your candles?
A: Wax - Custom blend of Soy and Coconut waxes
Fragrance - I strictly use fragrances without phlalates, also no materials that are on the California Prop 65 list of dangerous materials. I want my house free from these while making the candles, just as I want your home free from them too.
Wicks - The wicks I use are cotton with paper filaments. Absolutely no metal cores.
