Nestled in Hyde Park, Krista Jacobson, Owner/ Creator of Hippie’s Homemade Candles can be found busy at work.
Originally from Atlanta, GA, this southern girl has found her place in this beautiful city she now calls home.
The name ‘Hippie’ is a long-standing nickname given to her as a child from her brother James, and she has named her company in honor of his memory after passing away in 2008. She describes him as a beautiful soul. As his most notable saying goes ‘It’s all about the love,” Krista’s candles embody this, creating each one with love and a piece of herself.
Each Hippie’s Homemade Candle is named after things or moments from Krista’s personal experience. “Ellie” is named for her daughter, “Southern Girl” is one that best reflects her personality. They each tell a story of something that she wants to share with everyone. Every candle is crafted with 100% soy wax and made with clean burning high quality oils.
