Behind the brand

Light your fire.

Sheri Lerat, Founder of Karys Layne Candles
Karys Layne Candles was founded by Sheri Lerat. Combining her passion for creativity and eye for design, attention has been put into every detail of these candles. Only the highest quality ingredients are sourced from around the world, and then hand crafted in small batches in Regina, Canada. Soy wax, wooden wicks, and fragrant oils create these crackling and mesmerizing candles.

The name Karys Layne was created as a tribute to her children's grandmothers. Both women passed away before her children were able to know them, which inspired Sheri to name her company in their honour.  After years of experimenting, and testing .... Karys Layne Candles was launched in 2017.  However, just days after launching, Sheri’s personal life shattered when she became a young widow to a Fallen RCMP Officer.  As Sheri took some time putting the pieces of her life back together, she turned to painting, designing, and experimenting with candle recipes again. Part of her healing journey was to go back to her artistic roots.  It  was at this point that Sheri chose to walk away from her professional teaching career and pursue her dream of focusing her attention on her own company.

 Karys Layne Candles is a tribute to the beautiful transformation that can only come through the power of healing.  When your space feels good, you feel good, and this is where empowerment begins.  Life is precious - surround yourself with the right people, and the things that bring you joy.  Your Karys Layne Candle is meant to be lit with intention, as you take time for yourself …. because you deserve it.  

Most importantly, Karys Layne Candles is a testament to Find Your Fire.
