Our story

Mu&CC began during the pandemic (Coronavirus) while on quarantine from teaching. I needed something to occupy my time and possibly supplement my income. I’ve always loved candles, so much that they became a part of my budget. A friend inspired me to start making them and although it took some trial and error, I loved it! Melting wax in my small kitchen lead to this! Mu was the nickname for my brother, who passed away at the age of 25! CC was my mother’s nickname, who also passed. They were always so supportive in everything I did and I wanted to do something to honor them. I knew starting and growing my own business would make them proud.

Our wax

Mu&CC candles are made from soy and paraffin to ensure a great scent along with longer burn times
