Monticello Street Candle Co.

Yanira Garza, Puerto Rican Chicago native, spent the last 14 years in the beauty and fashion industry. After the birth of her third child, she officially “had it all” on the surface but on the inside she was suffering from postpartum depression. A few months later, her world was turned upside-down with the passing of her father. Yanira went on to search alternative methods of healing including meditation and aromatherapy. By May of 2016, she had embraced a slower and more mindful way of living and started creating aromatherapy candles to aid in her meditation practice. Three months later, Monticello Street Candle Co. was born, an ode to the street she was born on and her journey back “home”.
