About Us

Hi there!

We're Cassie and Anofils, the founders of Zanmi Home Candles.

Why are we holding feather dusters, you ask?

Well, that's simple.

(And, no, it's not because we walk around dusting everything we see. At least, not usually.)

It's because our business started off as a house cleaning company. 

We met, fell in love, and got married a few years ago. And we had plenty of adventures, plan-changes, and epiphanies along the way.

But we knew one thing for sure: we had big dreams.

Why Candles?

We wanted to build something meaningful. Something that let us impact others' lives, share goodness, and pass a legacy on to our children.

And we love our house cleaning clients — but as our dreams evolved, we realized we want to expand to reach more people and explore our creative side. 

Thus, Zanmi Home Candles was born!

Zanmi means "friend" in Haitian Creole.

And each of our candles is like a friend you invite into your home.

Bringing some extra light, warmth, and coziness. With a clean, fresh feeling whenever you need it!

We can't wait to share them with you. And we're so excited to welcome you into our circle of Zanmi friends, too.

Greetings from our most important team member!

Last but not least, Zanmim says hello!

She's our mascot, head of morale, and best friend. She also loves walks & snacks.

Our love for her is one big reason all our candles are vegan & cruelty-free.

We're looking forward to getting to know you as we share our journey (and our candles).

And if you have any cute pets, we'd love to hear about them. ;)

Best wishes from the whole team!

Cassie, Anofils, & Zanmim
