About Us

Our Story

Hi! I'm Courtney, Founder and Creator of the Free Mind Co. Like many, 2020 was a year that rocked my entire spirit, trying to balance being a wife, mother, and employee and a global pandemic. Then on top of that, add a pregnancy, followed by postpartum depression and anxiety. While those years were trying, the silver lining is that I discovered my passion for candle making and fragrance blending. It became my therapy and my outlet to unwind from life's chaos.

My sole purpose is to make sure our products help others have a moment of peace through a soothing aroma experience when they light one of our candles. Whether that means unwinding after a busy day or finally getting your kids down for a nap and you  can put your feet up. 

Life can be chaotic, adulting can be challenging, and we all deserve to take a break; I hope our candles help facilitate a moment of solace to reset and free your mind.

About Our Candles

Each candle is hand-crafted and hand-poured with love using vegan, non-toxic, and cruelty-free, and recyclable resources.

We pride ourselves in using high-quality, non-toxic, eco-friendly products. Each candle is hand-poured and made in small batches using premium coconut apricot wax and wood wicks. Coconut Apricot wax is also one of the slowest-burning waxes, meaning your candle will last up to 50% longer than a traditional candle. Its creamy appearance, remarkable scent throw, and clean burn make it an upscale investment we pride ourselves in taking to ensure the best experience for our customers. 


Founded in 2022, The Free Mind Co. is proud to be a black-woman-owned, Maryland-based small business. Our mission is to create beautiful, high-quality candles that provide a luxurious and soothing aroma but also help to promote an atmosphere of peace and well-being. In addition, we strive to provide our customers with a soothing and enjoyable experience that celebrates their style and allows them to express their unique personality.
