when i was trying to name this little handcrafted biz that is now @wildmountainwax, i kept coming back to the wild, snow-capped mountains that surround us.
our pnw mountain wilderness inspires my creativity and restores my soul. going into the mountains, for me, is a spiritual experience. i love wandering trails slowly, stopping to admire moss and mushrooms, or gaze out over vast lookouts.
the mountains remind me that i am quite small (and as such, so are my problems!) and they remind me that all of life is deeply interwoven and connected and that we need to each do our part to care for this earth we call home.
that’s why at wild mountain wax co, we are proud to offer artisan crafted soy candles + apothecary goods inspired by the wild pacific northwest and made with natural, safe ingredients and a whole lotta love.
we’re also excited to announce our give back program to help conserve and protect these wild areas for generations to come. stay tuned to learn more.

When we cut open the loft, we first envisioned a covert entrance via a stairway or ladder in the hallway closet, but the dimensions didn’t work. we then resigned ourselves to a ladder up to the main opening, but when thinking through logistics and safety (and that it might be difficult for our dogs or aging parents to ever set foot in the loft), we switched focus to a staircase. but then even a spiral seemed to have too big a footprint. so we were excited to find inspiration from a narrow european stair plan, which we altered, doing and redoing the math until our heads hurt. we’re now happy things happened the way they did. #koschalet

Being in the mountains is fun and all, but it also comes with a lot of responsibilities and certain skills/knowledge to recreate safely. i’m so stoked to finally be taking aiare 1 this weekend to learn more about avalanche risk and hazard management (in hopes that the mountains i love so much won’t k**l me 😅)! special thanks to @shejumps for making it possible for me to take the course this year and not have to put it off for another season. feeling incredibly grateful for this opportunity ❤️
Esperando la primavera y el verano que se venga!can't wait for the summer to come. who's ready🙋♂️ 🚵♂️🚣♀️🧗♂️👪🥾
