Hello my name is Rose Powell. I am 12 years old. I am in the 7th grade at Glenfield Middle School in Montclair, NJ. Four years ago, I formed Rose & Co. Candlemakers with my dad. My dad and I started making candles at home because of his allergies to the many toxins in paraffin wax candles. We made extra and gave some as a welcome present to our new neighbors. The candles were so popular, that I decided to have a candle sale at our house and then I moved the business to pop-up markets, artisan fairs and a website! I like to sell my candles to share my candle making talents with my community and bring people together. And we donate a portion of our profits to charities that support Girls' education everywhere! At Rose & Co. Candlemakers, we make handmade, natural, soy and coconut wax, eco wick, wonderful smelling, dye-free candles. I hope they will bring a smile to your face!!
