Healing Gifts for the Grieving, Crafted by Grievers.

AFTER: Love and Light Candle

The Grief Support Candle

May this simple candle ease your sorrow, even if only for a moment. Our signature candle is designed to help aid someone recently bereft by a loss.

When flowers can’t convey your sympathy, send a gift that is thoughtful; a gift that will be there after the flowers die, the food is eaten, and life moves on without us. This is an elegant gift that aids a grieving family long after the funeral.

We believe that grief is not something to be rushed or minimized, but rather something to be held with tenderness and care. That’s why we created these grief support candles – to offer a gentle reminder that it’s okay to take things slow, to honor your own pace, and to let yourself feel all the difficult emotions that come with loss. Each candle is hand-poured with love and intention, infused with essential oils and natural fragrances that can help soothe your mind and body. Whether you’re struggling with insomnia, anxiety, or simply feeling overwhelmed, these candles can be a source of comfort and support as you navigate the ups and downs of grief.

Each sympathy box is delivered with an 8 oz aromatherapy soy candle, reusable keepsake box filled with inspirational messages and thoughts, tissues, and a handwritten, personalized greeting card.

Our AFTER Story:

Our family suffered sudden death and we were left struck numb and deep. I created this grief candle as an answer to the universal frantic question our loved ones asked—how can I help?

This candle is a helping hand for when the flowers die, all the food is eaten, and life moves on without us.
During grief, sometimes all you can do is light a candle and breathe.

I offer you love and light,
Lisa Marie, founder

    Such a beautiful and thoughtful sympathy gift. The box arrived with the AFTER: Love and Light candle and it was in a beautiful wooden box with a small booklet of beautiful and uplifting sayings, a book of matches, Kleenex, a magnet and a list of ideas of reusing the box (I personally will be adding memories of my loved one to it each day). It smells beautiful (Lavender and Sage). While I love flowers and receiving them is always thoughtful, this was such a unique gift and such a gentle reminder each time I light the candle. I highly recommend this for those that are experiencing grief or for those who have a loved one experiencing grief.

    For this Christmas, I wanted to do something very special for the strongest and most meaningful woman in my life – my Grandma. All in the past 15 years, she has lost two of her children and within the past month she has suffered the loss of her baby sister. With always putting others before her, my Grandma has never given herself the time that is necessary to grieve these terrible losses. I had remembered that someone mentioned the ‘After’ collection to me a while back and the After: Love and Light was that special gift I was looking for. As I handed it to my grandma, without saying a word and watching her open up the lovely box with the candle and reading through all the heart-filled messages, she had a beautiful emotional release that I have never seen her experience before. By her receiving this gift, she has opened a door to finally have the time to allow herself to grieve and ultimately, heal. The After: Love and Light was the PERFECT gift and my Grandma is beyond grateful! Thank You!
