Our Story

About Us

Welcome to Adventure Wicks, a flame that sparked during the COVID-19 lockdown by Jose and Darla Guzman, proud Latinx entrepreneurs. As travel enthusiasts bitten by the wanderlust bug, we found ourselves yearning for the freedom of exploration while confined to our homes.

With a shared love for adventure and a longing to bring a slice of the world into people's lives, we embarked on a different kind of journey. Unable to physically roam the globe, we decided to encapsulate the essence of our dream destinations in each handcrafted candle we create.

Every candle at Adventure Wicks is a tribute to the places we dream of visiting—whether it's the crisp pine-scented forests of the Pacific Northwest, the warm embrace of a tropical beach, or the cozy ambiance of a European café nestled in an old cobblestone alley.

From the selection of premium, eco-friendly materials to the meticulous blending of fragrances, each step in the creation of our candles is infused with our unwavering passion for travel and our proud Latinx heritage. Our aim is simple yet profound: to transport you, even if momentarily, to the far-off corners of the world through the power of scent.

As a Latinx-owned, family business, we pour our hearts and souls into every candle, ensuring that each one not only lights up your space but also carries the essence of our shared longing for exploration and adventure, intertwined with the vibrant spirit of our culture.

Join us in our journey at Adventure Wicks as we kindle the spirit of wanderlust within your home, letting the flickering flames and evocative scents take you on an unforgettable olfactory expedition.

Thank you for being a part of our adventure.

Warm regards, Jose and Darla Guzman Founders, Adventure Wicks
